The Official Introductions Thread

1,341 posts in this topic

I just didn't feel the need to add yet another intro topic to this part of the forum simply to introduce myself, and figured why not make a dedicated thread for the topic! :P Anyways, maybe a mod can pin this thread! I guess I'll start...

I'm a super noob to the hobby! :lol: My brother got himself a Tamiya Lunchbox last week, and he let me take it for a spin.... hook, line, and sinker! I loved it!! So much that I ordered myself an RC yesterday! :D Soon to be the proud owner of a 1/18 scale LOSI Mini Desert Truck! Hopefully it will be just as much fun!! Anyways, I hope to make my stay here a long one as I get more involved in the hobby! Take Care, TTFN!

Great idea on the Introductions thread, but we beat you to it :) Introductions- just who are you? Sounds like a reason to tell us a little more about the r00st3r ;) I always wanted a lunchbox... Brings back memories of many wasted tempertantrums conducted in hopes of getting one, Never worked :lol: Nice Choice on the Mini, Losi makes a great RC! Ahh the memories of my first :D

Make sure to post some pics...

Hi All, I am very new to the scene .. this is my 3rd day in fact ... found the site after finding some of Squirrel's videos while searching for engine break in ...

been trying to fly RC Heli's for a couple months with no success ... except to the LHS for spare parts when I crash... and thought I'd give RC Nitro's a go ... man, I WISH i hadda tried this first ... best fun I've had in ages ... literally years .. and thanks to squirrel's video's .. i have found the break in relatively easy!..

Cheers...

hey guys, another noooob here. my first nitro car ever with be arriving later this week, and i found this forum after doing some research and finding squirrels vids on youtube. i look forward to learning a ton about rc's and hopefully keeping the addiction to a minimum (i also collect/ride BMX and that addiction has gotten out of control). the good news is i've been a member of many different types of forums and make it a habit to use search before asking, but that doesn't mean you won't see a bunch of noob questions from me in the future, so please be patient. alright, thanks for the great site.

Hello - I watched some of Squirrel's videos on YouTube and figured this would be a nice place to hang out and pick up RC info. Some of the big forums are annoying to read sometimes.

Thanks - Here are my current RCs:

HPI Savage Flux HP

Losi Speed-T

e-Flite Blade mCX

Traxxas E-MAXX (For Sale)

I, too am just joining the group.

I currently am the owner of a Slash, Tamiya TB02 and TA05, Axial Crawler, RC18B, Traxxas Mini Quake, and a Sportwerks Recoil.

It's like I tell my wife, you have to have one for each occasion.

And, by the way, I'll probably be the fat guy that always says sorry for wrecking you!!!

pictures coming soon...
