Imo the cost of getting started doesn't turn people away from the hobby, In comparison to a lot of other things its very very cheap, Hell, $120 will get you a RTR buggy or truck that is loads of fun.

However the cost does go up quite steeply if you expect to hit the track and be competitive, Still not a huge expense in comparison but a fair but more then just bashing. I can see many people being quite content to just bash.......

It also happens in other hobbies, I own a road bike, I know dozens of others who ride them socially, a handful that go to track days.

And ONE who races in local level competition.

Likewise for dirt bikes......
