Default How old are you?

I thought it would be interresting to know the average age on here. And maybe even post how long you have been into this hobby.

30 years old. I was into electric buggies when I was a kid/teenager but the lack of local support and other interests took me away from it. I just got back into it last year after some guys started having me make a few custom parts here and there. Now there is another shop and track in town and I'm hooked again.

35 and started with a excellent beginner truck,The Nitro Evader St about 1 year ago.I had a nitro car when I was about 8 but the thing only did circles.It had a long string that you had to nail into the ground and start it up and let it rip until it ran out of gas or stalled.What fun it was..

Got a Revo 3.3 now and love it.

29 here.

Started with the electric Rustler, then a Nitro TC3.

Took a break then spend thousands on XMODS and building tracks at work(I'm a teacher and my students dig R/C Racing). Sponsored a club and had events at school.

Then I bought an E Maxx; OOOOH How fun!!!!!!!!
Now, back into nitor: I presently own a 3.3 Revo and 3.3 T Maxx. YIPPPPPPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! !!!!!!!




RCs are definitely a natural high!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i'll be 29 in 2 weeks, been in this hobby for about 2 years, i think.

yeah, isn't the niro evader a kick-ass truck? easy to work on, and even stock, fast as anything.

when i was a kid, i had a Super Lobo from Sears, then a Blackfoot.

Ya I really like it,I like it so much I got another 1 for my kid.Hes only 6 but I limit the throttle so it dont go so fast.As far as mine Im not sure how fast it goes but it seems like its smoking for a 1 speed tranny.
But compared to my new revo,all I have to say is.WOW

You think they're bad in the US?? I'm paying £1 a LITRE. So about £4 a GALLON = $6 (ish). Now that's expensive! [:@]
