Is there such a thing as too many RC's ? I have 9 right now, have had as many as 14 in the past. Comes a point where there are too many to use/work on? How many do you have? Just wondering on a slow day.....
:unsure:

I ask myself this alot. Should I sell 3 before I buy another? Space has become my issue. Basement full of totes filled with support parts.

I just received another Torment (roller) off eBay. Haven't finished the last project (Amp DB) and I go get another. I think I'm addicted 😏

True addiction doesn't start until you own several different brands of several different sizes/types with enough spare parts you could open a hobby shop. Then its still considered a hobby until it starts invading other aspects of your life. (at this moment I have a dozen ready to run RC's on 3 shelves over hanging my living room tv) (okay maybe not all are ready to run - i think 2 of the Losi's have swelled lipos, traxxas has a stripped spur but the new part is sitting next to it, and I broke the front diff case of the Serpent last race and still haven't fixed it 3 months later- parts and new tires and rims still in the box from Amain) Okay I'm not addicted I'm just lazy.

Got me looking at my shelf and felt the need to run something. By the time I got the honey do list done after work it was too dark to run outside, so grabbed the micro. Formerly a Losi Micro-T converted to DSM and Brushless using a Losi all in 1 receiver w/ Dynamite Tazer motor , 2 cell LiPo. Uncontrollable so added Losi DT (Desert Truck) longer chassis, wheels, tires, and body to keep it some what drivable. Aluminum hubs, threaded axles, bearings, Radio Shack spring set w/ grease mod to shocks. RPM bumper at this moment completes it.

I noticed you have a lot of receiver's there, do you use a separate receiver for each RC? I use a RC4WD XR4 and run 1/2 of my herd with it.(the ones that need 4 channels) and the other 1/2 is on a Tactic TTX300.

Yes and no, I run 5 cars off the DX5C and the others use their own radios as I haven't switched them out yet.

It is definitely an addiction, but I'm not sure how many of us hobbyist are going to survive this COVID-19 Coronavirus ordeal. With people out of work or losing their job. It going to be rough for most of us. A lot of my friends aren't working or can't work because of this pandemic.

I'm fine. Thank you Jesus. How are you holding up? Prayerfully we manage to get through this and keep the Hobby alive. I'm overwhelmed with my RC's. PEACE! 😎👊🏼 Screenshot_20200502-155341_Instagram.jpg Screenshot_20200502-155149_Instagram.jpg

WoW :oops: That a nice herd ! (y)Which ones do you find you run the most? Like the most?
I tend to run my HSP 94111 Brontosaurus the most because it gives me the most problems. Now, I can't keep the left front wheel from coming off. It's identical to Redcat Racing Volcano EPX (I have a Volcano in the Stable also).

I upgraded HSP Brontosaurus from a Brushed vehicle, to a Brushless Beast of a Vehicle. I had to back the ESC down so it would stop breaking axles.

My Arrma Nero has never been ran. It's a "Shelf Queen" now. I added a Traxxas Maxx, Arrma Limitless, and Infraction to the Stable this year, as well.

I have a slew of parts and supplies just as my man, @Bugoff75, said. I probably can open up my own hobby shop. With all the parts I have.
