well, guys u are all much better off than us, asian RC player. We have a low currency (hmm, not that low compared to indonesia rupia), so for a tuned engine, it may just cost u guys USD400, but after conversion to me for example, in Malayisa, is about RM1400. so u get wat i mean? Standard of living is different, but price of RC remain the same tru-out the world.

this is even worst for those who spend on branded designer goods, such as LV, Gucci, Prada, D&G, Hermes, etc... all european designer fashion. hahaha... cheers.

No one, and I mean no one carries any "race" stuff". I have to literally shop for 95% of everything on the net, which sucks! I can't even get "good" servos.

Dude, that's way cool that your wife understands your hobby to the point she can buy parts for you. Damn bro that's killer! How long have you guys been together and how long did it take her to understand this hobby. You have a rare find there bro. I know you treat her like gold too. SWEET!

And yes, the money thing doesn't matter at all (I never trip or stress on it), in fact I just got a Tamiya Frog to go have fun with in the back lot. We live on an acre of land, so I want to build an offroad track and just have fun with my 100 dollar Frog.
The Frog was my very first RC car kit from over 20 years ago. I still have it in about 90% condition. We definitely need that reminder of "FUN" and why we got into this hobby in the first place!!! Sweet bro!
Thanks dued, we been together about 9 years married 4 she understood hobby from day one, cause I took her to the local race one day and she was hooked she even said I buy your stuff I told her it was expensive she didn't care so the first day out we spent $1500+ on car & motor & remote from that day on it's been on and
crackin.

Well it was 68 degrees here on wednesday so I took a table outside and finished building my g4s.

I was so happy its finally done, all I need now is an engine a body and 2 servos.


well My happiness soon turned into "WTF?" disbelief. It went from 68 degrees to 10-14 inches of snow within 2 days, and right now there are whiteout conditions outside my window and a forecast of about a foot of snow.....gotta love northeast weather.

Man that stinks...I guess it would be worse if you had a new mill ready to be broke-in I'm so ready for consistant 70+ degrees.

Ivan,

Is that your wife that come to the races with you on Sundays? You are lucky to have her support and backing. You need to train her how to pit for you.

To all the guys, I am his wife,friend, and a supporter of all he does. As for wives the only time we trip is when we are not getting enough attention in other areas. Most women should take out the time and learn what it is that makes their man happy and be a part of it.
I was hooked the very first time I went and I was really proud of him and of all of you Jr. Engineers becuase when I seen how the car comes in all those little bags and watch my husband and put it together that was it for me I saw him in a whole different light.
I just don't think wives know how much work goes into building and maintaining a sucessful car. I buy rc stuff becuase I want him to be the best and compete with the best.... specially if I am at the track all day. If your wife's or girlfriends ever want to talk or meet me at the track I be happy to give them some encouragement because our whole family is proud of our number one man.
P.S
As for being his pit man- you seen me I famine in every way. Don't want to break a nail
Final P.S
I may need to start a ten step program( My husband is a rc addict) and I love him still

That is an awesome post. I too am lucky in that my wife supports my rc habbit. She even goes to watch me race most of the time. I hope to get her racing a little this season and to get her going I bought her a new Losi XXXS as a gift. She loves it.... Tomorrow I'm taking her to the LHS to run on the carpet. I'm excited to see her race.
