    You know you're an R/C addict when....

    I saw this in another rc forum. I though it would be fun.
    Let's see how far we can get it to go.

    You know you're an R/C addict when....

    1. You're t-maxx has a name.

    2. You're at your lhs more than twice a week.

    3. Your car runs out of gas, but you never run out of nitro.

    4. You already know what part you're going to buy for next week.

    5. You start a thread like this one.

    8. When you've bought all the parts from your lhs, and he has to constantly order more just for you.

    9. When your pay off your real truck, and take out a loan to buy 4 T-maxx's.
    No way....no, no way.

    NO?!?!

    10) When your entire life and your families life revolves around RC and has for 10 years, that's just sick.

    Niggle is right. This thread has been done here before. I searched for it but couldn't find it though. If I am not mistaking it went over 200 threads.
    Ok so here goes;
    14) Your lhs not only knows your name but your kids names as well
    15) You leave your credit card at the lhs so you always have it when you're there
    16) The lhs guy is often invited to your house for dinner
    17) Your daily mood is governed by how well your Maxx is running

    Addicted when...

    15. You build a shed in back yard specifically dedicated for T-maxxes!
    16. Your rakes, shovels, hockey sticks etc. are stored outside!
    17. You have two sets of tools..one in above mentioned shack, and one in toolbox for the road.
    18. Walls are adorned with more parts than LHS (Two of almost everything)
    19. You have two engine rebuild kits, one for 2.5 and one for .15
    20. You make a silly list like i just did!

    What can i say...?

    Gregger
    T-MAXX parts are like rules..'made to be broken'.......
    But, like rules..parts can cause you grief and $$ if not treated properly!!
    What the hay...GUN IT!!

    21. One of the bedrooms in the house is called the "hobby room"
    22. Your wife asks, "Are you on the Traxxas web site again?"
    23. You can't remember important dates (wife's birthday, anniversary, etc.), but you know exactly when you bought your first RC
    24. When you buy a new car, you make sure the trunk can handle your 1/5 scale RC car
    25. Change the carpet in the bedroom (the above mentioned "hobby room") to tile so you don't lose small parts
    26. Contemplate selling all your RC gear to buy your next HOUSE
    27. And of course coming to the conclusion, you like your RC cars better than a new house...

    29) Your dining room becomes your workshop for your r/c (dining table = workbench)
    30) Contemplating on having a track in the front yard rather than grass and flowerbed. (actually wife's idea "put the dog kennel in the middle").

    39. When you apply for a loan at your bank and put you and your family in dept for the rest of your lives to open a lhs just so you will always have spare parts for your T-Maxx.

    40. When you consider the trade in value of your wife and kids just to own another T-Maxx.

    41. When the president of Traxxas sends you a letter saying thanks for sending all his kids through college

    I'm ashamed to say it, but my list describes me...

    47) When the LHS knows you, your family, and even your dog by name.
    48) When you've driven to the LHS three times in three days, which is a 1 to 1.5 hour round trip.
    49) When you start getting discounts at the LHS for being a regular customer.
    50) When you suffer from chronic pain in your right hand due to using hex drivers too much.
    51) When you continue using your favorite brand of fuel, even though you have mild allergic reactions to the dye.
    52) When you convert a spare room to a workroom, so you can sneak in wrenching sessions or drool over your trucks at 3AM.

    And, my favorite...
    53) When you pay $400 for a toy car!
    Six in a row makes it go.
