Welcome to the forum.  
What genre of kits are you buying?

I'm guessing your name is Rusty?

Thank you for the warm welcome. I'm currently living in Arlington. VA, and was an RC basher for a long time. Got hooked up when I got an Enzo Ferrary by Revell for my son when he was 14, he started painting it and didn't finish it, so I started to put it together and the bug bit me. So far I got muscle car kits, rally kits, few classic cars, a vw beetle to recreate the one I once owned. Actually still trying to finish the Ferrary but it became a pain since the engine door does not fit properly and the body is a little warped. I'll place some pictures when there's a real progress.

Thank you John2308, I like to play, now less than before, with 1/10 scale radio controlled cars, but never made it into racing seriously, because the RC tracks are too far away from where I leave, so we mostly played in parking lots and wherever we find some dirt. Currently we have several off road trucks, Traxxas, Losi SCB, Axial exo-terra and an old on road Tamiya.

I never got serious with my 2 Tamiya Frogs either just played with them in the desert ( A LOT OF ROOM THEIR ) and my friends dog's loved to chase them but never hurt them when caught.

Welcome rusty!!

It's a really good site with lots of experienced people here.

I had the Traxxas T-Maxx 3.3 a couple of years ago, but I kept crashing it and killed 2 engines so I sold it. Far too expensive to constantly keep up with the repairs.. Now I buy kits, least I can't crash them :)

Thank you A5h,
RC stuff becomes expensive with time. For instance I have 4 lipo batteries puffed because didn't charge them to store appropriately, so if I want to come back into it, I need to get the batteries first, and just now, in a compulsive shopping spree, ordered a Bandai's snap kit Imperial trooper guy; at least that way I would finish something quick while working with the Ferrary. Sooo.. RC still in the closet until funds arrive, and don't want to sell them either, those dusty cars are fun
