Hi from QLD
« on: November 29, 2017, 10:37:49 AM »
Hey,

Joined a while back now as i was looking at getting back into R/C but life has taken over and yet to do it.

I had a FG MT i converted to Baja and a couple of 5b's as well as other 1//8 and 1/10 cars but sold it all and went back to bikes.
No idea what ill buy but im not intending to go mental as ill just have a bash in my yard from time to time but knowing me i most likely will end up spending way more than i should.

Cheers

Thanks Guys,
Its been a few years and alot has changed.

Thus far im leaning towards a Losi clone, dont really know yet,
Id love a MCD but justifying the price for an once or twice a month bash is a little hard.

That shows commitment.

If i was able to do the trip alone it would be different, the kids would have driven me mad.
