Hello from Indiana

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Just joined the forum & wanted to stop by and tell you all a bit about me.

My name is Bob, As you can see I am from Indiana. I have been involved in R/C since the early 80's. I worked in the auto industry for a career for about 20 years, until finding my current position. I now work at Largescalerc with 1/5 scale vehicles, which I enjoy very much. It has definitely changed the size of my models considerably, but I still enjoy many forms of this hobby, reguardless of size. I have been racing for about 3 years seriously & am really enjoying it. The 1/5 scale off-road action is officially kicked off & we are supporting that form of racing as well. I have been around the block a while & at 40 with a wife & two kids, it's time for Dad to enjoy his hobby for a while. I'll add some to the largescale section if anyone is interested in what I'm driving mostly now. Hope to see you all around & thanks to Cow for the nice welcome.

I'm from Monticello. It's located about 35 miles North of Lafayette where Purdue University is located. It's definitely good to see some Hoosiers on here.

Awwww. It can't be that bad. Greenwood is down by Indy. Isn't it on the South East side ? I remember being there before. I still have family in Indy & that area. I would guess driving it would take about 2 1/2 hours. When we race in Ingalls it takes us about that long to get there pulling a trailer. Sometimes we take quite a bit with us.
