    You want to talk about a true money pit, it's RC stuff, I used to race 1/10th oval cars. After I quit and got to looking back at the money I was spending I wanted to declare myself insane. It was nothing to spend 2-3 hundred a week. It's a freakin addiction.

    Yeah for you and a money pit hobby, imagine what life would be like if you put all that money into paying off your home and invested it into your business.

    RCs are great for the first 20-25 hours. Then it's either modify or repair on a daily basis. Been there, saw what was happening, put the RC car on a shelf and left it there.

    You oughta see what it cost to have a true oval race car and all the crap to keep it up and keep it fast, it was almost like a part time job to keep it going.

    Learn to read!!! I said we, not I. Do you have that much trouble comprehending a simple sentence? If you can't handle that, I'm surprised they even let you operate power equipment....probably only have a couple of fingers and toes left. You southernerns are all the same...:laugh:
