    Oh look, another new guy!

    Hey there! I'm a new guy here at EPA RC Crawlers as you can tell from the title. I was referred here by JSlick and SteveTate12 so I decided I would join up on the forums and check it out. Glad to know theres a forum for crawlers specific to Eastern PA. Well anyway, heres a little bit about me:

    I'm 16 years old and am located in Chester County (Downingtown, PA). I started this hobby about 3 years ago with a HPI Nitro Monster King. I was just bored and searching around for something fun to buy after being rejected a pocket bike, go kart, and goped because of neighborhood "noise" regulations. Yeah I know...the nitro truck was loud too. Anyway, I had no clue what I was doing at the time, so I returned the HPI back to amazon stating that it was "defective" when really it was me who blew the engine because I ran it to lean. Well after that, I bought a Traxxas Bandit and thats the car that really hooked me onto RC. I used that for about a year and then got a Redcat Racing Twister XTG Pro on my bday. That was a good car as well despite all the negative comments about redcat. Well I fell bored of just running up and down my backyard so I went ahead and bought myself a plane; a Parkzone Ember 2. For the past 2.5 years I've been hooked on RC planes, but just now got out of them to get back into rc cars since the planes make me way too nervous to fly them. Tried helicopters and they never held my interest. I mean they are just little hunks of plastic that are not meant to fly!!! Got an ECX Boost, sold that. Got an ECX Circuit, and I sold that. This christmas, I got the Axial SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Kit since I've always wanted a scaler and wanted to try my hand at building. Well let me tell you...I'm hooked on crawling now for sure! As for the future, I'm going to be getting a HPI Baja 5B gasser (I call it the goped I never had) soon which will probably be my primary vehicle considering the amount of money it chews up. I'll be racing and bashing that with a group of large scale guys near/slightly far from me. I've been strictly electric after my HPI Monster King incident, but am now starting to broaden my horizons. Anyway, I plan on going to some of the crawling/scaling meetings you guys do around here, and hope to have some fun and maybe meet some people not too far from me!

    Theres my life story for ya.

    LOL yes I'm sure there will be more when its MUCH warmer. I can stand the heat a lot better than the cold as well.


    Thanks for the welcome! Now to scratch up some cash to become a paid supporter....I feel this is one forum to certainly support!

    I've driven it since then, so it doesn't look that clean anymore.

    LOL I agree. More years of RC = more life stories to tell. Yeah I hope to get out sometime this winter...the cold just kills me though!
