    - Wallet's always empty....nitro tank is always full.

    - You took a second job just to pay for r/c upgrades.

    - You took out a loan because the second job wasn't enough.

    - Not even hot chicks are allowed to drive your r/c... okay, maybe once... never mind, just take the remote.

    - The basement floor, garage floor and sidewalk all have lexan body paint outlines.

    - You're traxxas r/c truck can easily out-fly neighbors r/c plane.

    - The mower deck on your garden tractor has a cut height setting labeled "r/c".

    - You have run nitro fuel in the weedwacker.

    - You re-tune all your garden equipment before using it, even if it's running fine.... Or you don't feel right.

    - You've upgraded a perfectly good nitro engine... For a .03cc gain.

    - You can feel the difference between 18/86 and 19/90 in 48 pitch gearing in your Vxl P2de. (.41mph-3s / .27mph-2s btw)

    - You can rebuild your entire collection of r/c vehicles without exploded views, but have no idea where the oil filter is located on the family car.

    - You'll get the family car repaired at any shady garage, but would never let anyone repair your r/c... And if you can't repair the r/c, it'll stay broken until you learn how.

    - You wear a Bluetooth headset while driving your r/c, so you can still answer calls while doing gps verified speed runs with your phone strapped to the chassis.

    - You're r/c is so big, that you have to take a bike lock with you if you take it to the store.

    - You're r/c is so huge, that it has been booted for repeated parking violations.

    - You're r/c is so gigantic, that you switched from CA glue to welding rods.

    - You're r/c is so humungous, you pull out stuck motorists in the winter.

    - You're r/c always has new tires, but you've had the same shoes for 5 years and will repair them with duct tape if need be.

    - You cut up your all time favorite t-shirt to clean and polish your r/c.

    - You have syphoned the gas out of the family car so you could run your 1/5 gas r/c.

    - The LHS came out with a Christmas catalogue...for just you.

    - Within weeks of moving away, the LHS went out of business due to the massive decline in sales.

    - You go to church every Sunday, just so you can bash the parking lot afterwards, and the priest will end the service early to join you.

    - You would skip dinner to bash, but would never skip bashing to eat dinner.

    - The lawn only gets mowed in the areas where you bash.

    - You parted out the weedwacker in order to keep your r/c running, and the chainsaw is next.

    - All your cordless drills now have Titan 12t's in them, cuz the drill motors are in your r/c's.

    - When out bashing your r/c's people think you're nuts....cuz you are.

    - You called in late for work because your lipo wasn't finished balancing, then left work early because you had a fully charged lipo waiting for you at home.

    - You've taken equity out of your home, and invested it into r/c.

    @ bloody wheels:
    When on your keychain you have an old piston/connecting rod - I did this too! The original piston/conrod from my TRX15 out of my 1st gen TMAXX as a matter of fact

    And a couple more from me:
    -There's not an rc to be seen or heard anywhere, yet you SWEAR you smell nitro in the air!
    -You took possesion of a weedwhacker motor someone was going to throw out, knowing it would make a killer powerplant for something.
    -You also save electric motors out of drills, etc. for the same reason.
    -You're trying to figure out how to pull your lawnmower around with you EMBE to mow faster and more efficiently.
    -You've considered adding flotation devices to your rc for those ice excursions, you know... just in case...
    -Your kid is only 2 and already loves your rc!

    I have another one. Not sure if this has been said there are like 176 before this. LOL

    - You are logged into the Traxxas forum on your PC and your iPad at the same time while sitting at your desk, and utilizing both of them.
    - You snap pics from your phone and upload them to your Image account, then get on your PC with the image account and use them in a post.
    - I've actually used all 3 at the same time doing all those above. I'm sure i'm not the only one!!! LOL

    You know what's funny? I tried keeping a quick notes list for these, thinking I would think of one every so often and make note of it, but the list is always empty. I come up with all mine on the spur of the moment, and the more I sit and come up with them, the easier they start coming to me. I swear, if I had the time to just sit on this thread all day, I could come up with a million of em.

    When I started this thread, I had no idea that it would get this kind of response, and figured that once it died off, that I could edit it and just make a nice clean list of the symptoms everyone posted with their name beside the ones they posted. But it seems that we are all waaaay more addicted than we had previously admitted to, so as more addicts keep coming forward, it may be a very long time before I get to make the final list. I will do it though, you got my word on that one, but I'm afraid I may have my work cut out for me!

    Keep em coming guys! This thread has been a riot! 

    When you donate parts to a friend to get his truck running - just so someone else can enjoy the rc goodies!! (currently working in a friends tamyia king cab)

    When you buy parts with no idea they will fit just to find out (this a duplicate? (got 2 sets of springs for baldys dual rate setup and neither fit any of my shock bodies ))

    When you drive your truck from your house door as far as possible to the pub - every night for me, but i havnt got round to driving it through town yet - not sure what response id get from people lol. All just for taking the truck out.

    You mght be an rc addict when...

    - Your computer burned out halfway through a post on this forum so you went to the store and bought a brand new one just so you could finish it.
    -You have framed photos of rc cars

    - You buy another rc even if its one you don't want just for the fact that you'll have one more.

    - You have never made a single online purchase that wasn't related to rc cars.

    - You have traxxas bumper stickers one your 1:1 car.

    - You have been known to burn out a dremel within a day of buying it new.

    - You want someone to invent nitro fuel scented cologne.

    - Your trigger finger is always sore.

    - You have every issue of RC Car Action ever made.

    - You have a daily budget for rc purchases - but you can never stick to it.

    - None of the power tools in your house have a motor in them anymore....

    - You hire someone to come with you when you bash to flip your truck back over.

    - You save all the old nicd packs out of your toy rc's and solder on traxxas connectors just for fun.

    - You actually USE those packs in your real rc.

    - Your local hardware store is always out of stock of screws....but you aren't.

    - You wore out your computer speakers watching rc vids on youtube.

    - You have every color of rit dye available...and even some homemade colors.

    - You win the lottery and a week later find you're once again low on cash.
    - You have over 1,500 photos stored on your computer and all of them are of your rc's.
    - You re-tune your nitro engine for a 2 degree change in temperature.
    - Your nimh only sat for an hour after charging it but you still insist on peaking it again.
    - You've painted a part, decided you didn't like the color, tried to dye over the paint, which came out really bad, so you painted it again.
    - You could sell one of every rc traxxas makes and still have some left over.

    Your Stampede VXL is water proof so you decide to take a bath and shower with it.

    and, you definitely know when your an RC addict when......

    You go to the portrait studio at Sears and have a family photo taken with your RC sitting in your lap.

    You know you're an rc addict when you sleepbash(sleepwalking while you bash your rc trucks in the field). It has happened to me before. I woke up next to my car in the dunes.
    When you build a hidden layer in your house so that others don't know where your rc's are.
    When the neighbors press charges against you because their dog ran off in order to get away from your erbe.
    When you ran out of difflock you spit gum in the differentials of your mini summit in order to lock them up.
    When you dedicate a whole wll of your house to make a wall of shame for broken parts.
    When you take your summit in the house every two minutes to refreshen the batteries really quick and buff out the scratches on the skid plate.
    When you buy gas from the gas station instead of the lhs in order to get cheaper fuel.
    When your friends complain that you smell like nitro fuel.
    When you try to rebuild a lipo battery after it blows up so that you don't have to spend another $40.

    When you get more money for your pre roller on ebay than you can scrapping your 1:1 vehicle at the junk yard.

    When you walk into the LHS and order a gallon of sticky fingers traction compound.

    When you buy a couple of yards of clay for that sweet table top in your front yard.

    When have bald tires stacked next to your drinking glasses in the kitchen cupboards.

    When you buy an aluminum road case for you Castle Field Link card.

    When every time you take your taxi into the garage for maintenance, all of the mechanics stop working, walk over to the trunk and wait for you to open it to see which one you brought with you to drift around the garage with while you are waiting for them to fix the taxi...(TRUE!)
    Wanna bash at Greenwood Bashplex in Pittsburgh ???

    When you have a Craftsman stand alone tool cabinet in your house to store your RC parts and tools because you don't want them outside.
