Default Is everyone this insane in this hobby? (bought a new truck)

I just got another truck >.<
Too good to pass up
FG Race Truck with Front Disc Brakes, only 2 tanks of gas gone through it. I'll get more/better pics later. It's real clean and I got it for 750 with digital hitech servos. Just needs a K/S and install my current RX in it.

I cant wait for warm weather to get those slicks warmed up and sticking to the asphalt!
I want to get a ported head for it and maybe a lightened piston. I want to keep it 23cc but rev better.
I will be buying a new body that will only be used for show
It's going to be an exact copy of the caterpillar truck! Black and yellow here i come.

Definitely need to race! Just need to figure out if its an evo model or sportline.
Oh boy oh boy I can't WAIT To get this thing running on a nice spring day and get those tires warmed up to stick to the asphalt! It would look funny for a giant Super truck to trail your low tot he ground porsche. I need to get a decal and put it backwards saying "Nemesis" on the grill of the truck ahahaha.

Nice Sherv, I always like the look of those.[sm=thumbup.gif] If there was an on road track by me I would probably have to get me one of those and an FG F1. Which I guess answers your question, yes everyone in this hobby is insane.

it's great to watch those trucks race round, look top heavy but are far from it...
I wish we had a kart track here that would let onroads on it (don't even have a track that I'm aware of on the island) cos I'd be in for one or 2 myself.

and yep everyone is crazy in this hobby, as soon as you buy one you need another, always looking at what to buy next...I just priced out a 4wd laut supercross with a few extras...2700euro[X(] ($3850) ..I think that one will have to wait a while...
