    RE: wife driving

    I haven't even offered my wife a turn. One of three things could happen: She could like it and want one, she could wreck it, or she could think it's pointless and walk away shaking her head. Out of the three, I'd prefer the last one!

    RE: wife driving

    Well the way I see it is at least she wanted to spend time with U/the rc. My wife has tried my tsunami and is a pretty good driver, but she's just not interested in the hobbie at all.

    RE: wife driving

    Think of it this way, its better if she wrecks a 300 dollar R/C rather than a $30,000 real car

    Ya she stays on the throttle too long randy and she wants my monsoon, so I guess I have to buy another oh well lol. She is getting expensive on fuel too. 1 gallon gone in 2 days.

    RE: wife driving

    Great video. She did great. Looks like she was having a blast. We gotta get more women into this hobby, but you need to get ready for the reciprocation. She did what you love, so does that mean you now have to go shoe shopping with her?

    So long as he shops like she drives - noisy and at "full throttle" - she probably won't take him again lol

    RE: wife driving

    Why don't you MOVE AWAY FROM THE GOALPOSTS!!! Look at all the room you've got, and you park yourselves right there!!! Dude, you're just asking for trouble...

    And thanks to this thread, I asked my wife if she'd ever had the desire to try out one of my trucks, and she said "I'd love to!". Uh oh...

    but the funny thing is, she loves the hobby almost as much as i do lol...... now she wants three new trucks lol...the avalanche, a traxxas nitro stampede..and the new t-maxx..and the tornado bb...oh and now she just told me cause she was reading this post just now...but now she also wants the new team losi crawler truck..
