On October 26th our house burnt down along with all of our possesions. Including rc cars. My dad(MAXXimum) and me both had EMAXXes. I also had a Team Assosciated T3 with a Novak Super Sport. I was really into that T3. I will never forget the last time I saw it. In the end everything has turned out somewhat good. I got a T4 with a Novak Super Sport and a JR radio system and my dad got another E. I may end up getting another E some day but not any time soon. Since our house is gone we decided to tear down all of my jumps. (check out the thread backyard bumps and go to the second page. That was our house and my E)
We are getting a manufactured house and we hope to be back in it by easter. We will have all new jumps and hopefully have some new pics for all y'alls.

I'm GluteusMAXXimus's dad. We lost our house in those major fires in California. You're in England, so maybe you didn't hear about them. In San Diego county where we live, there were 3 separate fires going at the same time. The fire that got our house was called the Cedar fire and over 2,000 homes were lost in it. Our house was one of the first to go. We left our house at about 3:00AM with only the clothes on our backs. When we left, not even the local news was talking about the fires yet. We lost everything.
RC cars are a major source of enjoyment for us and we're slowly getting back into it. I've got my Emaxx and I've added RPM skid plates and bulkhead braces, 4 Trinity black springs, and aluminum bumpers.
More hop ups to come.

What a bummer, sorry to hear about your misfortune. I'm in San Diego county as well, but the fires didn't get any closer than 7 miles or so, but we were definitely ready to head out if need be. Well, at least you've got your family and your health, RC will be back I'm sure! Good luck with everything...

ya those fires were scary. just to think one night your sleeping peacefully in your bed then the next night your homeless. it was horrible having to leave your house and not know if you were gonna even have a house when you got back.

yah, california is quite similar to a lot of australia.. especially new south wales in summer.
in fact, i think in the last 10 years we've all shared our firefighters on several occasions!
anyway, sorry to hear but happy to hear that you're all okay.
