Default Why I always leave this hobby

So at 42 I'm coming back to this hobby for the 4th time. No stretch has ever been longer than 2 years. I love racing at my local track but the manufactures kill me everytime and 1 week in I'm alraeady feeling it.

I have a TLR 22 buggy (first Gen) and I lost a screw for the front wheel which is now obsolete. So i buy the 3.0 version which bolts right up, but now they have changed the hex size. Ok, so now i have $100 in wasted wheels and tires.
These things become Rabbit holes and I'm sure I'll find another problem when I buy the wheels.

I really hate to spend another $400 on a new kit and extras. I wish we were all still driving Old School RC10s.
