Default WOW! Interesting

As I'm looking at all my R/C stuff I notice that just about everything says something like "this product has chemicals that are known in the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm." the radio, tires, fuel, etc. Holy crap, i'm surprised that alot of you all who have been doing this for years arent glowing yet....lol Just some info.

well if you're like me and went through the military having had 6 anthrax shots not knowing what reproductive harm THAT could cause but knowing if you didn't take it you'd be dishonorably discharged....cancer is a minor worry.

I'm fine, I live in Illinois, not California.

Just about any product that contains lead has this label on it, while many solvents do too.

Them Californians... all that smog and weird stuff they've got makes 'em carcinogens....

There is a lot of harmful stuff we are around every day of our life. Even if we go on nature walks, we're still surrounded by dangerous stuff... It's all about being smart... Just don't be doing stupid stuff with nitro, that is the only purpose of that label.

Yeah the smog is pretty bad out here...I'm not sure why they bother with cancer causing labels...we're all dying slowly

They should rename us from the Golden State...which if you look up could be considered Golden but to The Kill Me state

Just about everything causes cancer these days. Goto a nitro race? You're sniffing exhaust fumes all day.

I think we'll be fine as long as you don't actually force yourself to deeply inhale the stuff or drink nitro.

I use Maxys Fuel and it may be me, but the exhuast smells good.
