DUDE, CONGRADULATIONS!!!!!!

That is killer bro. A little advice, DO NOT go to the track on Sunday. You need to start this wedding of right. I admire your racing ambition, but you NEED to find this all new balance with your girl. A womens wedding day is one of the most important days in THERE life and you need to respect that. You have the rest of your life to go to the track. You only have ONE Wedding day. Well lets hope so anyway. If you go to the track you may not even have that.

My first wife more or less left me because of this hobby that I also explained to her how very important was to me. Plus the dumb bitch new I raced and painted and worked on my cars non stop from the day we met. JESUS!!

Anyway, this is very real bro. My ex was on the psycho side yes. But marriage can change some women. NOT ALL, but some. My ex obviously didn't truly love me because of her decisions to not comprimise things, as I did cut back my rc to only 6 days a week. I did get married last year (6 years after divorce) to the most incredible woman on the face of this earth. I am trully lucky and very blessed because she supports my rc and all my other hobbies as well. All I'm trying to say is marriage and all relationships are a comprimise to a point. And you need to comprimise this Sunday, your wedding day for her. Remember, you get to live with her the rest of your life, not your race buddies. I would hate to have her resent your hobby the first day of matrimony bro.

I wish you all the luck in the world with your marriage bro. Make each other happy and always be there for each other. Do all this and you will get more RC gifts on your B-Day and Christmas!!!! Good luck ZOOM!!

I retightened it according to the manual and added a little extra blue lock tight. Tighten it enough so that there is 1mm thread showing.

This surely was one thing I overlooked cuz I never thought it would happen.

So boys, this might be another thing to put on your checklist.

Thanks for the help guys.
Thaought as much ,only thing that made sense.
great to see u sorted so next meet u on top of your game

Thanks for the wellwishing guys. As for going to the track? Well, I'll be home alone all day so no reason why I can't swing by. She knows and is cool with it. She is very supportive. I have even convinced her that we need to attend a race meet in europe some time - she said as long as it's in Italy or somewhere she wants to visit then it's on! Can't get any better than that. I guess that's why I'm marrying her.

Razzor, maybe we should get TM to do a sedan body with the same concept! It would save me trying to paint!!! I'll write to Edith now!

Hey Razzor,

Good to see that I'm not the only racing dad here. Two of my boys race as well - one races a T2 in stock, and the other a TA05 in Novice. Both are much faster than their old man

Here are the pictures of the family line up (TTR, or Team Thompson Racing)

Dude, I thought that the newer G4S RTR had a prepainted body with that similar paint scheme on it. Well maybe they just don'thave the body only yet for sale. But I don't know why they wouldn't. Dude, check it out!
