I wont be making the race. I was robbed yesterday, and my place was ransacked... they took my big LCD, my laptop, etc......

I just found out they destroyed my car pit and ****ed up my whole setup inn the back. I thought they didnt because my sister told me everything was fine. She didn't go in the back... So now I am screwed. So much for this hobby.


Look if anyone has any crappy parts or cars, or anything they can sell me, please let me know. I don't know how much money I can spend, but I have nothing now, absolutely nothing. I need to get a TV, computer, etc as well, so I don't know how much I can spend on Z's. I hate to ask you guys, but I am going to have to quit this hobby if I have to start from scratch. I just don't have the money now that I have to buy all this other crap.

Just PM me if you can help. Sorry I couldnt make the Atomic Race.... 82 bucks down the drain....... and no Z's

please don't take this the wrong way but there is a long list of members that have asked for handouts with or without a backstory, most of the time not...

that being said, i've seen many good people do many good deeds here. i'm committed to helping people and especially locals. i got your reply to my message and will get some stuff together asap. if you don't hear from me by friday, prod me ;) work is crazy right now so hobby time has slipped, includes forums.

Naw man. I am not asking for handouts, lol. I am willing to pay for whatever Arch... I didn't post that because of that reason, it was mainly because 51 people read that I got robbed, and 1 person said that sucks...... its no biggie. I am sorry I got pissy. It has been such a ****ty weekend man. I hope everyone knows I didnt mean anything by it.

no problem, it may not have been what you said but it's easy to see that's where it's headed is all. just wanted you to know there are some very good people here and i'll do whatever i can do to help out.

smashing the stuff up is almost worst than having it taken. all your left is with rubbage. if it was taken, you'de atleast haev a chance to spot it on ebay or a local hobby shop.

when is your next planned race btw?

It is sad to hear that happen to a member. Here where I live I have heard the rodeo saying many of times. "Once you are bucked off, you have to get right back on that bull". I wish you the best on getting back on your feet.

you'll find most mini-z clubs or GTG's are happy to have anyone that shows up to watch or race. I have met up with and raced with the DC GTG when I was intown for work. They are a great bunch of guys.

Sorry to hear about your situation, it really does suck. I'd offer something up, but all I really have that I'm not using is some iSeries MR-015 nascar chassis. they aren't the best for racing as they glitch quite a bit more than the standard electronics do. all my other cars I have setup for my son and wife.

I wish you the best in getting what you need to get back to racing.

Thanks Marc..... but proper authorities??... lol. In Baltimore City, they could give two craps about me getting some stuff taken. It took the police 4 hours to get here after i called, then the crime lab took another 3 hours... I wish it was more important to them, but its not.... I will survive. :)

thats terrible man, sorry to hear. Hope fully everone who sees this will take security more seriously. I agree with you, seems like a lot of people skim these forums but never participate, its weak. You in like an appartment or something? So did they take your car or destroy your stuff? I don't understand why they'd bust your Z stuff? Electronics must still be good, right?

Sorry for reading this thread late, I hope I'm not too late to offer a little emotional support. What kind of sick twisted criminal smashes up toy cars, anyway? Damn...

I wish I could help your situation out but all I can part with at the moment is an MR02 board with damaged FET traces. I would feel really bad giving you the frustration of salvaging it, given what you're going through right now. Good luck.

Jebroni
2008.04.01, 06:43 AM
Its cool guys. I appreciate all the support everyone has given me these last few days. The guys from Dorks on Wheels really came through for me over the weekend and took care of business I had to handle up at the Atomic race. I am going to get back to racing hopefully soon. I just worry because its real easy for me to walk outside and make money doing something I shouldn't do so I could get a car and get racing again, but I can't do it. I have come to far to do that......

So thank you all for your support, it means alot.

Nice! Glad to hear you're still in. i was thinking about getting renter's insurance, and stories like these make me want to check it out. I'd be heart broken if my RC cars and stereo and such got stolen. You may want to look into it too.

Jebroni - I've seen you posting on a few threads here and you seem like a cool cat with a lot to contribute to the forum. I hope you are doing OK right now, and we understand man - You are allowed to vent when some dumb shizzle like this goes down. I hope you build your Z inventory back up over time and this theft doesn't drag you down for too long.
Your Charm City Mini-Z club T-shirt idea has got my azz into gear designing a few custom shirts for a small Team of racers based on a business a good friend of mine has. Love the "Charm City" thang BTW, Jebroni.:D
Glad to know you are up & runnin' again. Best of luck.

It will be stock at 60, its 3010 fets, stacked actually, 4 x 4..... for 80 i will put a better motor mount on it, and damper system for you..... your call.... yes, of course it had brakes. Deal is though, you tell no one I sold it to you. I dont want people to yell at me, lol...

Look familiar?

Ok, this car is worth alot more than 100 dollars with
4 x 4 stacked fets and a damper system, motor mount, etc. I will put a Volkswagon Red GTI body on it if that work, and you can figure out the rest. Send the money today so I can ship tomorrow if you want it soon. Thanks partner!!!!

So this whole thread was BS to get free stuff? Then the free stuff was then sold? If that's the case then that's pretty low by anyone's standards!

Jebroni
2008.04.05, 09:15 AM
So this whole thread was BS to get free stuff? Then the free stuff was then sold? If that's the case then that's pretty low by anyone's standards!

I NEVER RECEIVED ANYTHING FROM ANYONE!!!!!

I had a few offers for stuff, but I refused once I figured out my finances and parts.....First of all, this was not an attempt to get anything for free..... I told everyone I didnt need anything because I figure it all out, and I never received anything from anyone. I would appreciate it if people would ask me first before assuming something.....


Also, the car that I was going to sell was actually a friend of mine from C-whits hobby shop, a place in Southern maryland. EVERYONE that was going to give me anything I told not to, because I was ok now. So please check with me before posting without knowledge.

Jebroni
2008.04.05, 09:31 AM
I really expected more from a few people on here. I clearly posted I was no longer in need of anything once I found various parts, had things fixed etc. I am going to ignore this because I travel around a lot to race and will hopefully meet some of you. I would hope that you would see my post about not needing anything, do a little research, then think before you speak, or at least ask me. I am going to ask that this is either dropped or I am apologized to because I want to be able to go to races without being angry or upset.

OH Hobbyworls in fairfax can vouch I came down there and bought a **** load of parts 2 days ago...... ill post the receipt if you guys wanna keep going with this

Jebroni
2008.04.05, 09:43 AM
I am helping sell that 02 to make a little cash so I can now replace my dads car which was also looted in my robbery. guys just ask me before jumping the gun and assuming. thanks

dude, in the middle of my fury, you actually made me smile. grats.

Actually, Nic Z has been helping me get back on the track and I have already sent him money, cars and parts left over. He is the man. I am trying to hustle and make loot to pay him for his troubles, get my dad a car, and get a new tv, etc.

Bye Bye, I was looking forward to racing with you guys. I drove all the way to VA 2 days ago to go to hobbyworks and get info and hopefully meet some of you. I really expected more, at least a pm to make sure you had the facts. the fact I got nothing and told everyone I was fine before pm ing him about the car should have told you. I hope you pm me so we can talk, if not, oh well.

Jebroni

absolutely not.. I never received or did anything for you to act that way. I have never scammed anyone, nor would I ever. I am done explaining myself. when you can prove something to me, let me know. until then, I look forward to meeting you someday at a race.

No one you have done business with has accused you of scamming them. Not sure why you'd be on the defense.

As I said before I only quoted what you typed. In fact you and I have done business in which case money came out of my pocket to send you somthing for free.

What you need to understand is we ain't your "boys" or your "homies" okay. I'd say 95% of us on this forum could not directly relate to your situation or way of life. Don't come here assuming that and expect us to send you an e-hug when times are tough. Get over it. I'm sure a lot of us are sorry to hear about your situation but don't take it out on us because you didn't get the recognition you deserved. Are you a man? I assume you are. Suck it up and move on. Don't drag the rest of us into your world.

I work at Johns Hopkins Hospital as a Surgical Implant Specialist..... You know not a thing about my world.... I help more people in a day then you will in your entire life. Just please don't act like you know anything about me..... Yes, I gave up an old lifestyle, went back to school, and changed my life..... the fact that I don't have any friends really now is not due to anything but my choice. I just wanted to share with you guys, because it helps me to know that there are decent people out there, thats all. I am sorry, and I will keep my posts only related to Mini-z stuff.

You're right, I know nothing about your world Mr. Surgeon General. And I'm sure you in your little Implant world think that everything revolves around you.

I know kids like you. Everyones got a story to tell. Everyones had hard times and not like thiers. You don't know me...bla...bla...bla...

How about this. Ultimate sacrafice, defend freedom and democracy around the world,
"With compassion for others, we build, we fight, for peace with freedom."
"With willing hearts and skillful hands, the difficult we do at once, the impossible takes a bit longer"
"CONSTRUIMUS, BATTUIMUS" "WE BUILD, WE FIGHT"

Ever see those? No? I'm sure a lot of people don't recognzie it. Those who do however know what it's about and the job that I do. I don't come here bragging or even comparing what I do to others. How long you been at your job? Your experiences couldn't even scratch the surface of what I've done but that has nothing to do with my passion for the hobby and helping others who have the same interests.

So Surgical Implant Specialist don't try to hustle anybody here and we'll be cool.

Just because you are/were a Seabee in the Navy, doesn't mean you are better than anyone else partner. I have the uttmost respect for what you do, as I would expect the same from you.


sacrifice??? I could post my pictures from the 4 years I spent at Camp Pendleton as an 0311 (machine gunner) in the marine corp. if you are gonna quote latin to me, say the only bit I will understand,, Semper Fi, always faithful. I did my tour serving this country, and I have seen more than you think. Nobody treated me any different, I earned my stripes buddy. If you want me to post pics in my dress blues, I can prove you wrong there too.

By the Way, I ended my duty as an E4, a corporal, so I earned my stripes as well. I guess they let kids do that as well....

I know you are the last word type, so I am going to let you have yourmoment, as I won't be posting on this thread anymore.... have your moment.

That there is the difference. I'm not asking for respect nor do I expect it. Hell I ain't even here to earn it. As I said before, I could care less about your past. It's what you are doing today on our forums. You made the decision to air your personal business. For what ever intention it's the internet and perception is everything.

"So Surgical Implant Specialist don't try to hustle anybody here and we'll be cool.

I'm not here to get in the middle of you two girls fight, but as far as anyone trying to hustle anyone, I can vouche for Jerbroni and say I have a copy of his police report for the robbery. I worked on his broken 02's and helped him get back into the racing scene again. I will also mention ALL of the work I did for him was either in trade with what little parts he had or by monetary value. I can back Jebroni up and say he's a decent guy and isn't trying to 'hustle' anyone, thats all I wanted to say, again not trying to get the in the middle of you two, but if there is truth or facts I can help with to set the story straight I will. Thanks
