    Hello all.
    My name is Jim. I am 40 years old going on 15...:rolleyes7:I have been into large scale RC cars for years. I have more than 50 RC cars. I have recently gotten into GoPeds. Have a few of those.
    I am swapping a HPI Baja for a very clean MotoBike tomorrow.
    I will post pics tomorrow.

    Figured I better sign up here so that I can stay up to speed.

    Looking forward to getting to know some of you.

    Haha...I hear you on too many hobbies bro. Never ends.

    I just bought a plane and have not flown it yet.
    I also have Heli's but I cannot fly them to save my life...LOL

    Add collecting guns, watches, sunglasses etc to the mix and stuff gets expensive quick.

    The bikes look bad ***! Luckily I am out of room because these are something that I can see myself getting into deep.

    Looks like you have a full plate as well.

    "Tornado Chaser" huh?!?!?! So you are a special kinda crazy aren't you....LOL
    What a cool job!!!!

    Hello, I have a question, can you make a living chasing storms? if so I'm going to change my occupation, I love storms they fascinate me. We get some good ones in the midwest sometimes. Of course don't like to see anyone get hurt or lose property.

    Welcome to the forum. I was fortunate enough to see a race at Riverside before it closed down.

    Nice flashback. It was a shame that they tore that down to put up another Mall.

    Do you remember the old Corona dirt track???

    I only go back to the mid 80s in California. Orange Co drag strip was gone also. There was a dirt track in Senoia, GA, where I grew up. I came home with clay in my hair every Saturday night. The track is now paved, but rumor has it that the owner plans to return it to dirt.
