I'm a retired electronics engineer and now run a small business from home. I've been in R/C for a long time. I race full size trucks now. I'll be racing our personal truck Sept 9 at the Mopar Magic Show in Sacramento, CA. My first real R/C was a Grasshopper, next an Optima 4wd, and then a RC10GT. I run a Slash 2wd right now and am anxiously awaiting the new Pro-Line Chassis. I'm also thinking about getting a new 4x4 or 2wd buggy. I've been eye balling the B4.1 and the SC10 4x4.
