I have been sort of bummed out lately since I can no longer race bikes. The competitive side of me is absolutely miserable. I have found a new hobby, photography, but that doesn't really take care of the competitive part of me. Anyway, I started thinking about things that I did in the past that made me happy and I started thinking about how much fun I used to have racing remote control cars.
Next thing I knew I was on the internet researching them then I was at the hobby shops, then I went and watched the WV state championships. Not only were the races awesome the people there were very nice and more than happy to share information. Even cooler was that I saw a friend of mine that used to race bikes as well but is currently taking some time off due to losing a foot in a motorcycle race. He is getting into the hobby as well.
So far the only thing I have in my possession is the car. It is a Team Losi 8ight-E 2.0. I have ordered a charger and power supply. I still need a remote, receiver, servo, and batteries. I'm still amazed at how much the batteries cost, those freaking things are $189 each!!!
Anyway, here it is. I painted the body yesterday so I am one step closer to getting to try it out for the first time.
