    Awesome. When I was a kid these batteries only lasted like 5 minutes, are they any better now?

    There is a defunct RC track near where I used to live. It would be fun to buy that and resurrect it and turn it into an RC megatrack.

    Completely different now. Most guys are running lipo batteries with brushless motors now. So upwards of 20 minute run times. Everybody uses 2.4Ghz so now frequency issues. Lots of changes in the last 5 years.

    This race also had several nitro classes. In all, your average electric racer probably has about $500 into it per car. Your Nitro racer is upwards of $1200-$1500.

    Fun stuff,great big boy toys.

    Went camping for the first time this year. First weekend with my cast off in 3 weeks. SWWWWWEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTT! Course I was at the camp site 20 mins and the water pump blew out on my camper. The same camper that I had brought to the dealership for 4 weeks and cost me $600 to fix. But I learned how to replace the pump in my camper.

    I've got some more yardwork to do including some SOD laying and I might fix a fence post and my gate.

    Start a thread with some RC cars and post more photos, those are pretty cool.

    I got my hand chewed up by some fire ants over the weekend. Picked up some mulch that had been sitting in one spot for three weeks and there was a whole fire ant colony under there. They started moving like crazy carrying their eggs away and about 20 of them bit me on my hands. YIKES!

    Fire Ants Must Die!

    Installed the 2500HD rear leaf springs in my truck, with a little torsion bar crank to level it out, and was able to fit the 35's... Overall, a productive weekend.
