Welcome to the forum betty.k!

Tell us a little bit about yourself...

2006.08.16, 08:37 AM
well i like going out to dinner, long walks on the beach........ :rolleyes:

the listing said purple, i swear!! :D

most of the time you see 2 cars racing in one of ph2t's vids, i'm the other one ;)

i started out in rc's a few years ago with bit char g's and other assorted micros.
that led to i wavers, xmods, 1:10's (hpi's, rs4 rally, rs4 mt) then into z's.

along the way i've also built a couple of rc tanks that carry my wireless camera around the garden and recently got into helicopters!

and to think all this started with a $15 bit :D

heh...zip zap's were the first for me too!

2006.08.16, 11:33 AM
Xmods for me. I bought the zip zap for my boy :)

Yea, its funny how people get into the hobby. Odd too since once you get in and know whats out there, each car/rc is so loaded. Like xmod vs. mini-z, look the same but totally different to us now that we have the experience.

So for me: bit clone -> mini-x -> abc dtm sp -> started racing at a 1/10 indoor onroad carpet track -> XRay M18 -> AE RC18T for my core progression, picked up some gen1 xmods and other stuff along the way. Just got a AWD mini-z and I picked up a blade CP about 8 months ago. Deliberately staying out of anything > 1/18 if you hadn't guessed :)

Nice to see you here betty :)

No shelf queen there! Has the battle scars of a real racer. I Like the extra hole for the antenne, puts it right over the mount I suspect.

that's actually where the hole on the iwaver mclaren body is.
i first used an iw bod then when i got the kyosho one rather than make a new aerial i just drilled a new hole.
when it broke i just made a new one to match the "kyosho" hole.

hehehehe, "k hole" :D

Nice to see you here, betty, you can now keep ph2t some company. :p

Hm... for me, it's Xmods -> Mini-Z. I thought ZZ's were way too high...

2006.08.22, 11:48 PM
"k hole" :D
