Default RE: how much cars do you have?

I have had many cars over the span of time I've been in the hobby, but never more than two at a time. Little amount of time/money for play nowadays, so one car's maintenance and expenses are all I can take care of. I also like to put effort into one chassis instead of over several chassis, so I end up with something nice/able to be sold off for the next project.

Yes it does.. BUT!! I am a structural engineer, my wife is in corporate medical industry, we are over 40 and have no children so we pretty much spend and buy what we want.

Yes but the expense is in increments. Not hundreds at a time but 20 here, 50 here, etc.. In a years time the urge is overwhelming...

Had 11, but, that was WAY too many for me to maintain. Sold them all and have the 3 listed below. Told myself that I will not go over 4 RCs. Not sure what the 4th one is going to be. Maybe a helicopter.
