The economy isn't whats affecting my inability to race much, its more so the fact that I just finished college and am working most weekends because I have to pay off all that damn debt, however I did manage to get all rcpro weekends off! so first full season of rcpro will be this year! and looking forward to it on the best team ever!

For me, it's not the $$$ it's the time...

With family commitments and other activities it's hard to keep up an active travel schedule with RC...

As far as the $$ goes...RC is really NOT that expensive of a hobby (at the club race level) once you factor in all of the costs and compare it to other activities...

A competition level RC Kit is comparable in cost (and potentially much cheaper) than a high-end set of golf clubs...Practice time at your local track costs less than a bucket of balls at the driving range...Race entry fees are MUCH less than green fees...and parts/nitro consumption costs are lower than golf balls/beverage cart costs...

I won't even begin to break down the comparison to the aforementioned 'nudie bar'....

I must admit that I have and planning to spend a lot more for this Summer compared to any previous Summer... I really am planning to go reasonably... all out.

Looking forward to a great Summer that I am prepared for.
