    Uh oh, I did it again

    Last night I ordered a summit Vxl, I'm very excited , however I didn't mention it to my wife yet . It's usually not a problem (with her that is) cuz I clearly have a problem. This is my fourth new RC in the last 2 months. Hi my name is Dave and I am an RC ADDICT. I don't plan on telling my wife until ups drops off a package.

    Thanks BigChet, I normally do to. Maybe I'll get to see it tomorrow after school. I may be 40 but I'm still a kid at heart.

    Alright, so I decided to bust out the summit today. I had it on the kitchen table so I could bind it and put the purple springs on the back. My wife comes in and says, when did you get that? I said, I've had this for a while . And that was it.. Hahaha awesome. And I really didn't lie.

    That's a good one too, I know my wife has nooooo idea how much I have invested in these cars, and nor do I care to share it with her. Lol for this summit, I had a little cheddar in my Paypal from some previous sales, and with TH discount code it was only $212 bucks. I couldn't pass it up

    Lol. Glad I'm not the only one like this.
    I use 4 different shipping address.
    My 5yo(now) would always know if I got something new coming home.
    I mean the slightest things like a driver, 12g wire, batteries n so on
    Just brought home hexes and she goes when u get that?

    Heck yeah, gotta teach the youngens' how it's done. That's the future of the hobby. I learned from my older brother many many years ago. I too share with my nephew who is 15.
