[size=12pt][/size]Hello my name is Joe. I started hobby-grade RC about 1994 with a Traxxas stadium truck. Never did go to any races, just "bashed" as it's called lately. In a couple years i sold the truck and haven't been in the hobby until now, although over the years I've picked up a few issues of RC Car Action. I recently purchased a Rustler VXL. I'm quite impressed the way the hobby has evolved. Back then (i sound old =/) it was a different story. Anyway, I've been bitten by the bug and hope to contribute as well as learn from all of you. Hope to see you out there sometime soon.This is a fun hobby and a relatively inexpensive one compared to my other interests.
