    Married, was into RC before I got married. My collection continues to expand and contract as I'm always buying and selling. Right now I have a MM 5700 Pede. A Rustler that I built that is waiting for its Velineon system(or whatever I decide to get for it). And a bugg project that I recently started. I've had a number of Pedes, Rustys, and Bandits in my day. And a Revo 3.3.

    Married. Happily married for over 3 years. And a 2 1/2 yr old son. I've been into r/c since last April. But my wife doesn't mind. I could be doing worse. And now she has a truck. I'll be showing her the ropes when I get home.

    I'm married at 28 years old with a awesome baby boy. We have been together for 10 years and have known each other for 20 years or so. She also doesn't like all the time and money I spend on my R/C's. Oh well. What can you do? I just keep telling her "it's for the kids" someday.
    I'll miss you Jato :(

    Dating, for about 2 years, love her to death, started in rc about 2 years ago aswell, she used to complain a little about me spending money on rc stuff, but she's been hangin out with me when i bash around or run on the local track, and i think she kind of changed her views on the hobby.

    I'm married - 2 1/2 years, I am 26, my better half is 39, and have a 16 year old stepdaughter, got into rc's after we got married, She blames her best friends husband for that, they were stationed in Nebraska and when we went to visit he brought out his pro .15 Maxx. I bought one that spring. Now he lives in Texas and we ship our cars back and forth between here and there everytime we see each other. My wife doesn't mind much, I am not blowing the money on alchohol and other women. She does call it the mistress

    23 years old, been married for 5 years (yes...I was 18 when I got married lol) we have a 10 month old kid our own house, 3 cars and waaaayyyy too many bills haha. I was into the RC hobby since I was about 8 but never really got anything professional until I was about 17 when my first car was a tamiya michael shoemaker formula one car rtr for 99 bucks lol. After that came my Losi XXT and I kinda lost interest in the hobby for a couple years. After I turned 21 I got my Tamiya TT-01 and made a drift car which was fun but I was the only guy around that was drifting and it got boring fast. Everybody else was into speed but I'd spend too much money if I went fast....fast=break parts quicker lol. So I decided to get my nitro pede, I got the new gen the first week they came out and I've had a blast with it although everytime I run it I break somethin else on it lol.

    Been married happily for 12 years, been RCing for almost three years. Christmas will be my 3rd anniversary with my EMaxx! My wife's sisters' husband has been into RC since he was a kid and got me into it. They all gave me gift cards for Xmas to get my first one. He's got about ten hobby grade trucks, but I'm trying to catch up! I have a Maxx with nary a stock part left, a Maxx Comp crawler, and I'm working on a street truck and I'm building another EMaxx from all my leftover Maxx parts. I'm also getting an HPI E-Firestorm for Christmas this year. My wife probably won't get into RC, but she puts up with my RC obsessive disorder!!

    Happily re-Married after being single for 5 yrs, I have 2 boys (from my wifes previous marraige) and they are my pride and joy.
    Got into the Hobby a long time ago (in the 80's) got out of it, took my wife to a Monster Jam and saw these guys with Nitro RC's jumping huge jumps. Told my wife, I gotta have one of those. Next thing I know 2 months later she takes me to the hobby shop and let's me pick out a Nitro RC. TMAXX of coarse.
    Now I have 2 RC's our boys have an RC they share, and I'm saving up for my wife's RC. It's become a family thing.

    I'm 16 and still single. I've never dated, but there is someone I've had my eye on for the past few months (she's dating someone else right now, so I'm waiting to see what's going to happen). It's pretty cool, she lives right next to a good friend of mine (her older brother is also my friend). Not to mention, which I find really cool, her dad has an old '72 Road Runner he's been meaning to fix up (as you can see I'm a car freak). Up till now I have had no use for dating, seeing that it's high school and I'm a bit of a religious guy (no premarital "physical relations" and all that), but this girl seems to be different, as though I would actually like being around her and just doing stuff together. If I do start going out with her though I'll try to be cautious as I've heard many horror stories about people getting too obsessed with each other and messing up their lives. I pray that it might turn out something like traxxasrevony's situation; I'm so scared that she's going to go some place far away and I'll never see her after high school again... I keep telling myself I shouldn't obsess though, I still have the second half of my junior year and my senior year to go...
