    I have a Traxxas T Maxx LOVE IT.... Any other fans here?

    This is my dad and I ripping around his yard last year. Ignore the camera work... The OH isn't real good with the camera... I now have a few cameras and tripods to match so this year we are going to have a better setup. Building an actual track and a platform for us to race from.

    I have an older Exceed G2 that I don't fly much anymore. The main reason was that even small mistakes meant repairing something. The parts were cheap but it was time consuming. And ain't nobody got time for that. I just wanted to fly. Now I have Syma X5C quad copter and love it. Very easy to fly and pretty durable

    I SHOULD be into RC. Used to love the ones I had as a kid. Had a 4x4 truck and then I had the XTRAC or something like that. Had a big track on the back and could go through up to 2 inches of water. Stupid track dried out and broke after like a year or something.

    My stepson has a couple of decent little RC cars now. Nothing as cool as you guys have, but I have a good time zooming them around for him to watch.

    (Mostly just commenting here to keep up with you guys and be jealous.)

    How do you like your HPI's? I was looking at those but no one around me carries parts. I really wanted easy access to parts so we chose Traxxas...

    How well do yours hold up? I'm amazed at how much of a beating the Traxxas's take.
