I have been on somewhat of a crawling and RC hiatus. I logged back on after some time and there are a LOT of names that were prevalent back then that are not around. I know all to well how life can get in the way of a hobby. I am a 2004 member.......how many old timers are left.......?

One of the constants of this hobby, no matter the niche, is that it lives and dies by the new blood. But, there are still a good number of us that are still here...

I joined, played with tiny trucks, then took about a ten year break, then came back and played with toy trucks some more, then stopped playing with toy trucks again. I still come to site a lot just for chit chat though.

I'm not that old school, just since 08. I myself went away for a few years but I've been bitten by the bug to build again.
Build threads aren't like they used to be... my new one will be like a snapchat post more than anything.

Welcome back!

I'm not OG old schook, but I've been a member since 2008. I got into the crawling side of it then with a Losi Mini Rock Crawler and just never stopped building scale trucks. I've been in and out of RC's since the 80's when I got my OG Tamiya Hornet.

I have been in and out of it for a while. 1:1s have been taking up more of my time and money lately.

Still have a fully run tamiya YJ bodu build on an RPP Outback chassis with TLT axles... had fat rock Cs, RC4WD rear lock outs and all. Still have the Dinky mounts for running leafs on a Bruiser chassis and tons of other random TLT shit..


Those were the days...

That's what my Chevy is based on... Outback chassis were made right around the corner from me. I picked up my chassis from Warren himself.

Can't we go back to those days, nobody cared about germs.
