I've been playing w/ R/C Cars for 21 years now, and when I started it was at a local track and I knew over 1/2 the guys racing there from outside of R/C.

There were guys like me (an auto mechanic) there was a plumber, a outside salesman for an office machine company, etc.

I'd like to see who YOU - The Oval Racers here on HOBBYTALK are and how long have you been a R/C Nut?

Became a Office manager and then a CFO for a PR marketing agency, then went to a Credit Union as a Computer operator in data processing. Been with Ford (Dearborn Truck) for the last 8 1/2 years as a consultant. I basicly keep the IT equipment and production going.

Webmaster for the GLQSR club out of Lansing and I like to golf too.
46 years old and want to race in to my 70s. if I can keep from drooling on the radio. That seem to be a bit of task now... lol
