1. Down time, I hate going out bashing and having to fix stuff most of the time instead of being out on the track. (especially when its a diff you just put together the night before )

2. Lack of quality places to run such as tracks and big bashing spots

3. Too much stuff out there. there are so many rc's and hopups that i want to get but its just not gonna happen

but really none of this stuff really matters becasue even if i run for 5 min and i break something it's still worth it... i just can't get enough of this stuff

Friend driving into wall at high speeds
ya i know what u mean lol
on the 1st day i got my savage after Extreme Hobbies broke it in for me my i was driving it around the track and my mom who had just got there to pick me up says "let me try" THIS WAS A BIG MISTAKE well nothing bad happened but keep in mind it was my 1st rc vehicle and like 3hours old lol
so she stated taking it around the track then goes over the jump to the right of the track (the 1st one if you start at the pit) and keeps going straight and went right up the wall does a flip and lands i was freaking out lol but it was kinda cool but yeah im not too reluctant on letting anyone else drive it unless they know what there doing

Finding a wicked kewl jump, lining up the truck for it, and finding out you have no idea how to drive cuz you launched you truck into your neighbors minivan at probably 20 miles an hour.

I didnt do that, really, I didnt

My freind comes up and asks me to drive, and I said ok, bou nothing over 1/2 throttle. Then he says "hey, lets do a jump!" and before I know it he's full speed up a curb, in the air, and smack int a cable box

broke two a-arms and front shock tower

he never drove again lol (but never paid me back either)

Sorry to go on about something useless

#1 has to be Off Season
#2 building a heli and it won't fly (still choked about those batteries)
#3 not getting your favourite fuel. I hate mixing/changing
#4 glow plugs that last 10 seconds and you are out.
#5 buying something that has to be upgraded before you can even use it.

too many things I like to list them but my favourite thing is the friends I have made since starting. rc people are the best
