sorry guys,
But it's time to move on.I want to finsh restoring my 1986 Shelby Charger,but
it's hard to be into something when the racing is not there.
and you local hobbyshop is more in to selling airplanes and diecast
so you lose interst in it,it's hard to keep buying things to keep up and
not many times to use it.
but don't fret i will be keeping one mini and my dauthers tl01
if money is good for the memphis race i'll see what i can do
thanks for the concern and support.
mike masters

ps I really injoy the races and people that are in this sport!!!
A big thank you goes to "Bill,Doc,Jeff,Todd,Gary and everyone i forgot it say

aww maaaan

Although I totally understand. If Trackside and Cinci crashed and burned for TCS I probably would be thinking the same thing. Although I have been racing my TA04 & TA05 locally without TCS and don't have much more going on with other classes. . .

If there is anything we can do or any last minute TCS trips you plan on making and need a roomie give us a shout! We will try to avoid places without fish. . .

I might have to hit you up for one of your minis or at least the swaybar for the M04 if you are going through liquidation?

Mike-
Take a deep breath, and realize that February is still four months away. That's like a lifetime for your newborn and your pre-teen daughter. So...spend time with your wife and kids. Forget about RC racing until after the holidays. In January, after the tree is put away and it's dark waaaaayy too much, the thought of running your Mini will seem fresh and exciting. And, perhaps like me, you will then emerge from your ectoplasmic filled non-racing pod READY TO ROCK!!! So there. And here's a Kleenex for everyone who shed a tear at the thought of Our Boy Mikey giving up TCS. No way.

Troy-
Best way is to e-mail me at [email protected]. I'm out of town in meetings until the weekend but start by e-mailing me and maybe we can hook up by cell phone when I have a break.

Later
Doc

So sell everything but the one or two cars you actually plan to race (maybe your '03 and '04) and a couple of battery packs and the stuff you would take to the races. What's left should fit in a couple of pit bags or drawers. You'll free up some cash without having to re-invest when the bug bites again. It's always cheaper to keep the really good stuff like chargers and radios than sell what you've got and buy again six months later...

SELL NO SILVER CANS!!!

Although if your stuff is really old, sometimes it is better to sell out then get back in. . . I resemble that remark.
