Im well. Haven't touched my RC stuff in a long time. They just sit at my Dads place. The RC club I was apart of had pretty much disbanded, no one has time for them anymore. I've focused more on my 1:1 car instead.

Sigh... I know the feeling. Though it's still nice to pick them up every now and again, I thought I was going to get back into it and bought a new motor for my baja..... That was before Christmas and the motor still sits in the box.

I'm going to hijack your car pic to post my own.... I was debating bumping "my car thread" but I never liked bumping old threads. March 14th 2014 my caprice died http://i.imgur.com/8IhIHg2.jpg Long story, I broke every knuckle in my left hand. My mother was driving, she suffered worse then I did, broken leg, thigh, pelvis, long long longer story on what happened to her but a year later I've gained 80% of my left hand back, mom was walking and back to work but new things were found and another surgery later she's almost back to walking again......

On a happier note: My current ride http://i.imgur.com/WhZkH4N.jpg

That sounds horrible, I'm sorry to hear that. Legs and pelvis are no joke. Glad things are looking up though. Will be praying for you.


Well Foxy, looks like the rest of Europe had to save your sorry rear again :P (no offense I know youre not greek lol) they've gotta get their act together or the EU council wont just kick them out of the Euro but out of the EU as well.

It's not that simple. The problem was caused a few generations ago, we're just paying for it, and what the troika is doing is literally economic conquering, though at least the world at large is starting to realise it. The debt is unsustainable, they're just pouring water on a fuel fire. #itsacoup

I may have to sell my car which it took me a lifetime to achieve after only 7 months of ownership.

The EU is fine, In my opinion. It's worked very well overall but because of its interconnected nature it took a big hit during the global financial crisis. From a security and global power projection standpoint, the EU is an amazing ally for the US to have. If it weren't for the EU (and NATO, it a more old fashioned sense) Putin would be screwing with Europe a lot more than just his little game in Ukraine.

Well, I'd agree with you on that one. But think about it, what political system has ever made everyone happy. The unfortunate part of the EU is that wealthier countries like England, France, and Germany have had to carry the weight recently - but considering the free trade and seamless growth, is that really the issue? I mean, if it weren't for the financial crisis, we wouldn't be having this conversation, and honestly that crisis was created right here at home.

Kinda in the same boat

Buried my old 98 monte carlo back in november(the engine had corrosion in the internal coolant lines) as repairs to get it in good shape would cost more then the vehicle was worth, and honestly I didn't like it.

Upgraded to a 98 Jeep grand cherokee that has been keeping me busy like most the past 2 months was spent looking for a new drivers side door, sanding it, and painting it to match the others(which it doesn't from certain angles damn I hate metallic paint), then threw in a new set of speakers, fixed the door latch, and some rust repair while trying to learn how to weld sheet metal with a oxy/mapp torch(not easy in the slightest). Next I gotta learn how to do pinstriping to pinstripe the door to match(damn is this paint ludicrously expensive).

I've also been trying to get a lil into photography bought a Nikon D3200, and a couple lenses, and filters.

I've had a Nexx 10 SCRT10 sitting here for a year without a motor lol Painted the shell, and was like I'll take the one out of my other RC, and never got around to it. I guess part of my problem is the park I would go to run at the city decided to build another school there(seriously they have like 5 schools right next to each other) so there really is no where I know of to run where I can be alone so no one gets hurt.

Welcome back!!! I am just getting back on RCU as well. It is hard to believe how much this place has changed. Things appear to have slowed down a LOT (active membership).
