New Guy from Louisiana

Recommended Posts

Well, whats up guys and gals? My name is Jon, I`m 24, and I`m from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (anyone else around me?). I`m extremly new to the sport, and I must say, I am absolutely addicted. About 2 1/2 months ago my dad was cleaning out his shop and found his old RC10 graphite (i believe its like a 87-89 model) with an old Futaba Magnum Jr. and he gave it all to me. Since then I`ve gotten me a Kyosho Lazer ZX-5 RTR with a Castle Creations Sidewinder 5700Kv motor and ESC, all the parts that I had broken, are now aluminum. And last week I went and bought a new Airtronics M11 DSSS 2.4. I must say, this radio has helped me soooo friggn much as far as dialing my car in. I`ve got to admit it, I got wayy too much power in here for this being my first car. So yes, I have broken AHELLUVA lot of stuff. I`m beginning to get it though, I turned the EPA down on my Tx so now its controllable. So heres a fair warning yall, prepare to be some question answering fools! LOL. Cause theres gunna be alot of 'em. I`ll try to get some pics of the ride on here tomorrow. BTW, the guys at TheToyz.com are awesome. All of my aluminum parts that I have gotten for my car, are from here, and these guys dont play when it comes to getting products out the door. Thanks guys! One more thing, I noticed when I was typing this topic out, If I have to go back to correct something, when I start typing again, it goes over my existing sentence and I`m basically starting all over. Is there a setting on here to get it normal? Thanks again guys, and I`m looking forward to b/s'n wit you all. :D
