Default taking a break from rc the second time in about 3 years!

the only reason im doing this is because im playing football this year for my school and have no time to use them so ill be packing them up and leaving them with my cousin once again, and football is about $395 all together, $110 for registering, $85 for tee shirts shorts and practice jerseys, $100 for helmets and pads another $100 for game jerseys and game pants. hopefully i get my trucks back in one piece in December.

Why not just put them in your closet so you know that they are safe and sound

I'm sorry, I gotta call BS on the last part of that.
First off, no burgular breaks into a house and takes parts off of something that is as easy to carry as an rc or two.
Second, how do you dissassemble rc cars perfectly silently in the dark - much less with dogs in the house
Third, your cousin just happens to own 3 of the same rc's as you.

Now I don't know your cousin and they are your rc's to do with as you wish. BUT, If I were you and left them with him again, I'd be expecting another "break-in".

first the bugalurs only knew the brushless systems were worth money not the trucks, second i ment to say pit bull not pit bulls and the trucks were in the basement and the dog was upstairs, third we dont own the same rc's i have rustler and t-maxx he has owns the rest. and lastly we went to his friends house for the day. so no one was home and the neighbors dont care about anything.

sometimes it is good to take a break because when you come back, it's going to be fresh and you will enjoy RC even more. That is just my experience.
