Well RCNT, i can officially say I'm addicted.Or infected, one or the other :p:

So anyway, i got into RC, seeing as I'm 15, the jobs you can get are pretty crappy, so i dont earn much... Anyway, took me a while to save up for my buggy, the moment my account reach $500AU , it was all gone and a brand new Gv Dominator sat in its place. Each week my account went down another $20AU, and a bottle of fuel was in my possesion :D
After slowing down mildly on the fuel consumption, the bank reached $200AU, a quik trip up to bendigo got rid of that! Good bye $200, and hello New O.S 8 plug
3ft Of Fuel Tubing
Gold Fuel Filter
New Clutch Bearings
Yellow Kyosho Spoked rims
HoBao high grip tires w/ inserts
Venom Temp Guage

So, the bank has once again been broken for me. And I'm already saving up for more godies on my wish list. The addiction has taken over!!!:hehe:

Anyone else have this problem?? lol:)

LOL....I'm surprised you got away with it this long.
I'm sorry, but there is no cure, only another fix with a different rig. :hehe:
R/C.....The ONLY expensive addiction you can REALLY enjoy.

My name is Josh and I'm an rc-oholic.

First comes the infection... then the addiction kicks in later. I got it pretty bad these days. You can tell you have the r/c bug bad when you spend $700 on a welder and accesories so you can build your own $70 rollcage. HeHe!

I know the pain--new gun or new rig? Big grins from hearing the gun go bang or big grings from skying the rig? Decisions...

Apparently it can get really bad. I heard of a guy that put about $2500 into a Savage and never even started it, and now he's dumping a wad into a crawler, to change it to a scaler.
I'm pretty sure he's already way beyond professional help.
