I will admit to 'Rc Gazing' and I'm sure other fifth-scalers will admit to it. Quite often I would just sit and gaze, enraptured, at my fifth-scale machine in my garage 'wrenching space.'

For me gazing at my Redcat Rampage XR styled as a 1920s vintage racer is the most enjoyable thing--almost intimate. I reserve time after work to spend time with that machine. I can hug the bad thing. Lol.

I even suspect my wife experiences moments of jealousy judging from the way she makes snide remarks about the time I spend "...with my toys."

So guys, it's time to 'fess up.' If you too have a bromance with your fifth-scale RC, respond with a 'Yop.'

I do it quite alot (mostly cuz my truck doesn't run😂). Here's a couple pics I've took. The ones with the red lighting is when I took the shocks off to see what looked like, obviously won't be that low

Hes still putting the engine together..... soon it will be alive
https://www.largescaleforums.com/threads/custom-70cc-engine-build.22765/page-37#post-234723

Read up lol
Thanks for replying for me, was having dinner. But yes, Im building that new engine because my old one (a rovan 30.5cc) blew up and I wanted a big bore, so i couldn't afford a big bore and I didn't want a small (like under 40cc) engine so I decided to try and build one, fast forward a year, I'm actually going to be spending almost as much as a big bore (when completed) but I think it's worth it for the know how and experience.

I agree. The 'know how' and the 'experience' are priceless. That aluminium body on my Rampage XR, I built it out of a sheet of aluminum with no prior experience in sheet metal work. It was a consuming and great learning experience.
Best of luck, my brother. Peace!

Not yet . Guessed you missed the thread about all the rain lately. Sadly i'm not a teen anymore. Work 40hrs a week and have a lot of things to do around the home also. Sucks when life and resposibities gets in the way.

I do stare at my 5t, as I spin it on my turn style stand.

Ummmm...... counting all my rc stuff I do stare at them a lot as they are all over the man cave. Some of them anymore (helis) i wonder why I ever bought. My tamiya terra crusher I think i stare out the most wishing I could find u joints for it.(they were made oit of plastic) But my dbxl gets the most attention as it's what I grab to run most of the time and by admission its what's broke the most often lol.
