buying from that supplier would make you think why you would anything in AUS kyosho related.

if this hobby was recognized pretty well throughout the world, then there would be a good and medium size market for rc car.

it would mean prices would be cheaper too for parts and kits etc.

xGSiR, you shouild have gone out to eastern creek yesterday for a look (MECA) It would have been an eye opener.

Its like everything, if you are an observer from the outside it looks small but when you get seriously envolved you start to see how big it really is, the infrastructure, all the people etc.
But I maintain it should be bigger than it is, but there are issues;

1) Price to get started (as compared to say normal sports gear)

2) Too many shit cars (eg GV) available that scare people away from the sport when they start falling apart and costing heaps to maintain.

3)Club members not making newbies feel welcome (this does not apply to every club and certainly not to every member but I have seen some shocking examples including verbal abuse of kids who simply did not understand frequency tags etc)

4)Unsportsmanlike behaviour. Ever stopped to consider that the newbie slowing you down is having a hard time even keeping his car on the track???

Anyway my point is we cant control everything that happens but by treating people the way you would expect to be treated and making people welcome....its a start

I didnt race, I wasnt going but the guy who bought the carbon plate off me was going to be there so I decided to save him some time and me $2.00 postage It was worth it though allthough I was sorry I couldnt hang around for the finals as just the first heat was about 1hour45mins!

There will be another meca at Eastern Creek but im not sure of the date.

Firstly I live 2 hours from Sydney! Secondly in between racing I have a job, a wife, 2 children etc etc.....its a case of balancing the lot. Its only this year ive slackened off with the racing scene though.....Im just overcommited with time! Should be on top in the next few weeks though hopefully.
