Now Herman,I ask you,Is that a collection of cars,or is that a collection of cars?
Wildcat Fuels,Baby!!!!!!!!!!

Good God, Harry...this is one kick ass collection...Especially all the Tamiya stuff

I'm 34 and been in and out of the hobby since '87..still own my "original" RC12L - the one with the fiberglass chassis somewhere...plus an original gold tub RC10, RC12i (or e, I forget)

I got thru stages...Have a big "herd" thin it out some, it "grows" again, thin it out again But that's just thining of race cars....collector items are something different - even though I hate to see perfectly good R/C cars sitting on a shelf

I'm 34, started in this hobby in 1986. Use to race a car buggy called the Nikko Rhino. Also got a Tamiya Hot Shot around that time. Left the hobbie when I went to college. Then around 1992 back into it with a Losi JRX-Pro and a RC-10L pan car, both of which I still have. Was out of the hobby again, until my sister-in-law got my brother a HPI RS4-3 2 years ago. Now I'm knee deep into it again. Now I have an RD Logics Mongoose, Yokomo GT-4, Nitro RS4-3, and a RC10-GT. And still looking for more, maybe 1/8th on-road. What a great addiction we have.

In December I'll turn 15, so guess my current age!

I've been in the sport non-stop for about 3 years. 2 seasons ago I used to drive an old Serpent Impact, then I got an Serpent Impulse Pro and started to race a little, starting out the season by driving 24-25 sec laps, and then in the end of the season running even 21-22 sec laps. Then, for this season I got myself an 710, and started out with even 21-laps, but now I got down to even low 19

Thats about 0.7 USD per litre right? That's extremly low compared to the sick Sweden prices (where 70% of the price is taxes). Here we pay about 1.60 USD per litre, which is about 6 USD per gallon.. Thats sick! And this price is for cheap 95 octane blended with some 5-10% ethanol.. Man, sometimes I wish I lived in the US...

Hey, talking about age,...... I'm sure you can't beat this story :

There is new comer in my home track, a 8 years old boy, and he has been practice driving Serpent 710 for mere two weeks. During Nationals race today, That boy has successfully completed his first race, 45 minutes Final A !!!

I personally congratulated him for finishing 8th. His name is Arya. I'll take his photo if I get permision from his daddy.

Racers are finding it tough to get to nationals this year due to petrol prices. I think we will go to regional events to keep the cost down and have one national final at the end of the season

I watch BBC World, petrol price in UK is really expensive, more expensive than in USA. I don't know what other countries have expensive petrol.

In Indonesia, we will pay US $2.28 / gallon per September 2005. The government will banned petrol subsidy...... currently we paid $1.54 / gallon.
