    Yup......

    I have an electric car with throttle control and it's all wheel drive. Real MPH is about 30............

    I also have 3 planes, but don't fly those anymore, I lost my touch!

    I work at a radio shack so I mess around with Rc's a lot. There is this RC quad that is pretty sweet, awd, and actually has so much torque it can actually pull wheelies in reverse on the front wheels; unfortunatly I ran it into a street sign and messed something up. There is a helicopter that is kind of amusing, but pretty crappy as it only has up down, and rutter control. A hummer with treads for tires, I had some fun in the flower garden out front of the store. And there is a dirt bike with jyroscopic stabilization and that is pretty cool. Personally I like the little 2stroke gas powered RC cars that go like 60, those are neat.

    I just bought a 5 foot 25cc gas boat does about 40 and has a nasty 10ft rooster! I love it.. accept for when I kill it and have to strap on the life vest and swim 100 yards!! hahah

    About to get a gas buggy today or tomorrow. I love them! R/C planes are a blast as well, but I hate having to travel to a big park to play with them. The boat I can play in the lake (my back yard) and the buggies I can play with anywhere.

    Anyone else have any R/C?

    The Mayhem is great! Closest thing to a pro racer you can get from a RTR. The 0.26 kicks ass. I have heard some negatives about their front arms. Quick replacement. I would have one...except none of my LHS carry parts for it. 2-3 week wait for parts. Most LHS's around here carry OFNA. I think OFNA's RTR's kind of suck b/c of the AM radio. Although the new Hyper 8 looks pretty quick. You may want to wait on the specs of the Hyper 8 before buying the Mayhem. I guess most RTR radio equipment isn't good anyway...most likely want to replace the servos and radio with anything RTR. Although pending if you want to bash or race.

    Might want to consider a truck if you plan on just bashing. They can handle a beating!

    Yup, actually that's 2 planes. A 40% Extra 300 and a 40% Cap 232. Both have 150cc twin cylinder gas engines.

    I have a lot more stuff, but for the sake of security, I can't share. Sorry.

    If you like jets check out www.georgiajets.com it's a closed membership club, only jets and competition pilots accepted. You may think that's harsh, but imagine this: you have about $30,000 in a toy plane. It's a contest winner, and you've made twice what you have in it back in winnings. Do you really want to fly around with a guy who has a $100 POS and take the chance of a mid air? At 200mph a mid air is catastrophic.

    I never got into cars much, so 2 dimensional. Hehe.

    Anyway, it's truly a great hobby. I have some foamies that I fly around in my living room too....

    That's the first one he crashed. Or perhaps the second.

    He built another and crashed it too. Good grief that's a lot of money to just be boring flaming craters with.

    Lord Humungous thats a nice plane man. Extra 300's are nice machines (real ones not rc) That's patty wagstaffs plane of choice. I've been around aerobatics for a long time, my dad is good friends with Gerry molidor if you know the name. One of the best aerobatic pilots in the world. I'll just stick with rc lol

    I have just bought a revo Truck and a Mayham buggy. Picking them next week. (bought one for the lady hahah )

    Looking forward to playing around with them. I have some land next to my house that I may use to make a small dirt track. these things have come a loooong way from the R/C 10 buggy I bought 13 years ago... and not using up 2 full days to put these together makes their price A-OK with me!!

    Nice RC's! Tha Mayhem should keep you entertained! The Revo should go through anything! That was quite the shopping trip. Were they both RTR's?

    Did you get a chance to try the Losi LST? It won Truck of the Year for 2005. They have now taken that truck...added on the upgrade parts available...made a new 427 engine for it...and have released it as the LST2. This thing is sweet. Comes with 3CH synthesized FM radio, glow ignitor, receiver pack and charger too! Should be out just before XMas.

    Oh God...the RC-10. I had one back in 87. Those MF'ing tie rods ends were the life of me. What was with that green ceramic conductor for the throttle!? Like spend some money on a servo guys! Geez! I have some pics of my old RC-10 floating around. I'll scan them when I find them.

    hahahha!! My RC 10 had a hell of a time keeping the F'n throttle control right! haha

    Honestly... I made a huge launch ramp before I got sick of fixing the thing and (no shit) launched it over a car port and 3 cars! It was f'n sick! And even better than that... when I was trying to break it... it wouldnt completely break until like 4-5 jumps! hahah

    All of my new toys were put together already. I saw a new buggy they are coming out with that does 55 out of the box... thats nuts!

    RTR (Ready to Run) are a great way to go if you starting out again.

    If you decide you want to stay in the hobby...buy a good radio and replace/upgrade your receivers and servos. Money well spent.

    Not to offend you here...but do you know how to break in the engines? Fvck the idle method. Heat cycle them.

    yeah i got a lil obsession with rc, i got a associated tc3 with an rb motor in it and a few other mods. I also got the 1/7 scale hot bodies lightning street. I had a hpi savage with an o.s. motor in it but i sold it i was also into boats at one time but sold all of those also. Im lookin to get somethin for off-road soon not sure what yet maybe a revo. I also had a kyosho inferno 7.5 sports, but i did not like the thing at all. maybe if it was the kani edition i would have liked it better. Its a really fun hobby not into planes much but i might get a heli tho , just becasuse they are so cool lookin.
