Default Its a sad time for me...

Hi all,
Darrens update: Let me get straight to the point...

I have sold my Monster Beetle on ebay. So i am with out a large scale for the time being and maybe for a long while.

I am not sure if i want to get back into largescale again

For some of you this news will be shocking, but i have to sort somethings out in my life first before i doing anything like this again. Because i have wasted quite about of money on this hobby what with buying a Marder Race and only having it for 6 months, then selling it, then to buy a MB and keep that for 4 months then having to sell it.

This can't be right nor finacially good for me.

My "custom title" says it all Not Enough Money, Too Much Time

Guys, i will not forget all the help / commets and great advice you have given me other the past 2 ish years. Thanks.



Darren
Peace to all

Money was the main factor. Expensive hobby for a uni student. and we will leave it at then.

The great thing about this hobby is, when you are in a better position to get back into it, it will still be here.

Patience is a virtue, learn from any mistakes you may have made now, and do not repeat them.

Hey man, they´re only RC cars. You can always buy a new one later when the situation improves.

There are more important things in life than RC.

If you buy a new one later, well we´ll see you then.

Good luck!

Sorry to see you go but without finances it's hard. Get your school done, a good job and once you're back on your feet you can get another one. Maybe FG will finally have the 4WD ready too!!

Take care!

I had to wait until I was 38 (11 years after finishing my degree) to afford to get into this hobby. You have to put your degree first so you will have the financial capacity to live the rest of your life and get back into RC when you get the rest sorted out.

BTW - Now that RC won't be distracting you, you better be a freaking honor student!

Good Luck,
Ken

I was more said to see my Marder Race go, than I was to see the MB go. I not sure what that means.

you quit uni??? why mate? that is a very big decision i hope it wasn't negative circumstances that caused you to leave? i graduated in 94' but i took a year out in 93' due to probs with the then mrs., i thought about leaving but i had already put 2 solid years in and learn't so much i ended getting my degree with honours and the rest is history

is it still your fresher year? maybe uni wasn't for you mate? all the best with your future matey

That's $ so £1100. I would probably want a full alloy FG for that with Multiplex servos and a very good radio set (everything in good condition albeit second hand)

Hey Neo - saw your add in this forum. Nice looking top btw - Good luck getting 2K for your kit. You might be better off selling your parts separately.
