Default Age and What You Rip With??

Tired of hearing this is a kids sport. So I thought we can have a thread that states our age and the car we rip with.

I am 36 and Ripping with a Ofna LX Pro, JR XS3 Remote.

29. 8ight, powered by a Go3 port sport (practice) and a Go 7 port race. The 8ight only spends time on the track.

For the off-season I picked up a blade CX2 Might even step up to a 400.
