ahahha.. im a Shelf Queen

lol!





nah.. i used to always be in RC cars.. but never had a nitro one..

then my neighbour bought a WINNER PRO.. what ever the @#$$# that is.. lol

its a .12 or .15 crap merc ..

i saw his on-road, and how it broke every run..



So i thought... hmm/.. ill get one to race him.. (to be the shelf
queen), and i did.. i got a Savage, and it mauled his a$$ . lol



But the other reason i got it for.. was to go to the park and have FUN!!!..

and mum loves it.. coz it keeps me walking

When I bought mine I just thought I'd like bashing in a few local parks etc... but a local group of thugs kidnapped me, drugged me and have forced me into meeting them often at BMX tracks and now they've brainwashed me into spending large sums of money on mods.


If I ever get out from under their spell... I'll kill them!!

Its your bad influence that has the rest of us trying to keep up with you. Now with your modded picco you are forcing me to get a modded RB 28..........well maybe

Yep... I'm betting you will get one sooner or later.



I was actually thinking of an RB for my 'other' savvy.

Well I recently bought a Tamiya Stadium Raider and its the most fun I've had with an rc car in ages, despite the crap tyres, lack of oil shocks and it can't drive in a straight line but hey it seems tougher than my stampede collecting dust. Weird huh ?! Traxxas go on about their composites used in their parts, while Tamiya parts seem 'plasticy' but the only damage so far is a steering servo.

I got mine for bashing and occasional racing, but then I realised there were no off road tracks any where near me so it's just a basher. Edited by: finny

LOL... it doesn't help when it gets used a 'donor car' to keep others going at bash meets.
