Im 15, ive been into RC for...ummm...since I was 9 or 10. started with an RC10GT , then about 2 years later decided to get an HPI Nitro M, was into RC airplanes for about 2 months then decided it wasnt as fun so went back to my Nitro MT (my plane is sitting in my basement collecting dust right now), and just got my new Savage SS 4.6 kit the other day.

I started flying airplanes in 66, U conrols at 1st, then in 79, got into R/C's flew them until 93, graduating to 1/4 scalers, but when they crash, you can't really fix 'em....and they took SOOOO long to build.

Started racing cars in 93 with a Legend car, these days running Mugen's MTX 3 and MRX3's, and Just LOVIN' the 8th scaleers ! !

I'm 50. Can hardly believe it myself, still act, wha maybe 25....

15, been in R/C for about 2-3 years. I'm no n00b though. I'm already designing reverse ackermann touring cars. I just need some funds to make it happen.

Hi,
I'm 14, I started RC at the beginning of this year. My car is a RS4 Evo. Never really get the chance to run it though due to lack of concrete around here in the English coutryside. I'm hoping to move up to a RC18MT!

Thanks,
Chris

the RC18MT is nice. My situation is "similarly opposite" of yours. I've got a B4, it's fully race ready, yet can't drive it due to the fact that the only offroad tracks form my house are atleast 80+km away! Bleh, bashing is okay at the moment. Soon to be getting a Tamiya F201 though.
