    We have $1,000 worth of car in my garage right now, not including upgrades, batteries, chargers, or extra parts. We have $2,000 worth of go-kart and mini bike elsewhere in the garage lol.

    This is a little late but:
    You might be an RC addict If you're watching the BCS National Championship game and see a fan's sign that says RTR, and you immediately think of "ready-to-run" rc cars instead of "roll-tide-roll"

    I can almost relate to everything on here. I have Slash 2WD I am selling to get a Slash 4x4, I have a Summit, and I am still wanting to get more! Here is a couple I made:
    - When you can't walk through the house without tripping on a RC Truck
    - When you have a name for every one of our RC's
    - When your family asks if they can have a pet you bring them home an RC
    - When you school teacher says "Do Your Homework" you automatically think about working on your RC's ( This one is me)

    You wanted to start racing a certain type of rc at your local hobby shop and they tell you they need a minimum of four rc's of that type to start a series; to which you reply "oh don't worry, ill buy four myself and let other people use them if that's what it takes"

    -When you get a bag of water ballons for your birth day, and your first though isn't "who can I hit with these" it's I'd bet these would make a great shock boot. I did that. The best part is it worked great!

    - You tried using your 1:1 car to clock the speed of your r/c... but your car couldn't keep up.

    - You have so much r/c stuff, you had to hire staff to keep it organized.

    - You're E-Maxx and 1:1 truck run the same wheel and tire combo.

    - You put your r/c up for auction on eBay... and bought it back at twice the price.

    - You're T-Maxx's engine produces more HP than the family car.

    - You have considered selling a kidney to fund an r/c build.

    - You routinely go to Best Buy just to ask them questions about r/c's and watch em squirm.

    - The landscaping contractor you hired is the same guy that designed and built the local skatepark... you're wife is not pleased.

    - You bash at the local baseball diamond... even if there's a game underway.

    - You glued your iPhone to the TQi docking station so you'd have an excuse to take you're r/c everywhere you go.

    - Your idea of a portable launch ramp is a piece of plywood taped to your kids back.

    - Your neighbors think you have medical conditions after you told them that your LVC stopped functioning on your VXL which is an ESC that is controlled by your TQi, which now requires you to use an LVA whenever you run to prevent over-discharge and irreversible damage to your lipo.

    -Your friends and family are smart enough to get you upgrades for your cars as presents
    -You have enough parts to make a complete car from leftover stock parts
    -You think to yourself "Maybe if I sell my Xbox 360, I could have enough money to get the new MM2..."

    Baldy's such an addict that:

    Baldy's such a addict that

    On his last birthday, PeterV come out with his birthday cake....loaded with candles and said, "go ahead Baldy, make a wish"
    traxxas has established a 401k plan with him and match 25% of his weekly purchase, for his retirement.
    Company owners like Traxxas, HR, CC, each have a boat "named Baldy", floating in a harbor at there favorite vacation spot.
    Home Land Security is still watching him from the "eye in the ski"! Seeing just how far he will take these things lol.
    Nasa reviews the same footage to see if their's anything they can learn from it
    Seismographs all over the northwest are now programed to distinguish between a small disruption in the earth and Baldy's bashing the HR P2de, witch is expected to save thousands of dollars in falls earth quake scares.

    Or when your 6yr old nephew assumes you also have ninja turtles, transformers and various other toys and when you (I) reply "no sorry i dont, what makes you think I have those?" He chuckles and says "so these are your only toys?, where are the rest?"
    (He still to this day thinks im holding out on him)
    - the question "you get that at walmart?" Always results In you explaining in detail the difference between toy grade and hobby grade rc...even when you dont feel like explaining it

    When half your bedroom is dedicated to rc.

    When you tell yourself you have enough cars. It's time to start saving for a real car. "Hey look. I have to have that one!"

    When the cash register at lowes knows you by your name.
    When the owner of the hobby shop you go to knows your name and number.
    When you know more about a car then the people that work at the hobby shop.
    When your friends call you and ask if you can hang out and say no and they mutter your bashing huh.
    When your on this thread during class time.
    When you try to convince your mom that's it's a good thing to spend more money on your rc car.rather then going out with friends.
    When your parents friends call you for advice on a rc car for their kid for Christmas.
    When your parents friends ask you to come over and help them work and their kids car.

    - When you find yourself attempting to control the moon's orbit with your transmitter
    - If while watching X-Men you spend half the movie thinking how awesome an Adamantium bumper for your RC would be
    - If you have an RC truck which controls you instead of the otherway around
    - If in your dreams the universe explodes and all that is left is RC
    - When you girlfriend asks you to do the dishes you reply that your building an RC to do them
    - When the planet is under attack by zombies and you're thinking about which LHS you are going to plunder first
    - When you know how to program a Traxxas remote.....
    - When you go from door to door trying to convert people to the hobby
    - When someone asks you what RC stands for and you answer "the essence of existence and then some"
    - When you setup your own channel with hunderds of videos and create a forum and then moderate it all by yourself
    - When you're a cucumber
