Default How old are you guys ?

I'm 34 years old, and I feel like married again when playing RC

I've seen some 45+ years old RC drivers and they refuse to grow up hahaha !!!

Hahaha.... you need new air filter !!! I lend you the filter oil

Very good Fat Cat !!!

BTW, you can tell us anything you like, such as what cars you have, when did you start playing rc, or how you "trapped" into this hobby, etc.

edit : Okay, me first. I was playing rc back then in 1995/1996 at TCS, Tamiya Alisio Viejo. After I graduated, I stop playing for 8 years, and restart this hobby again at 2004. I have accumulated some cars like mini coopers, mtx3, t1fk, lst, tt01. This hobby is great !!!

I got my first RC car in 1988 when I finally realized I was never going to afford drag racing. I'm 44 now and I don't regret it. My wife may.

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

Well I'll jump in here...lol

I'm 35, been back to r/c for 5 years. I ran off road in the early 90's for about a year or so then went drag racing. Spent a bunch of money....

Like some of you guys, my wife isn't too crazy about r/c racing. She told me if I didn't stop racing she was gonna divorce me... man, I'm gonna miss her!!!
