    Besides Footy I wonder what you chaps do for kicks (other than watching porn :) )

    This is what I do these days, Offroad RC car racing. I built this buggy from a kit. They can take heaps of punishment on the track and pretty quick.


    These pics are from an  Radio controlled car offroad 1/10th scale pro-am meet at castle hill from last week. Luckily for me I had someone there that could drive my camera while I was racing.



    This is my car complete with 40-0 stickers on it ;)

    They are hectic, awesome on a bmx track, wicked air.

    These are electric as well. Nitro has nothing on these. except noise.

    Couple of my mates race their RC 1/8 scale models, they travel all over the world Europe, USA and Asia representing Australia. They have a dedicated track that they race on in Liverpool just underneath the road bridge and right next to the river. I have been a few times to watch them and I’m really impressed by their skills of driving them around the track, they bloody fly around the track.

    I ended up buying myself 1/10 scale Victor Bray Drag car, you should see the looks I get when I take it out on the  road, cars actually stop to watch it in my street.

    My best mate brother also race ¼ sprint cars, check his RC out.

    From being involved with ¼ sprint RC (the Ginger Ninja) as he is known actually got a drive in the micro sprints sponsored by Tricorp Security.

    How often are you racing out at Castle Hill Byso.

    My hobbies outside of RL is 4WD, fishing and love any sort of motorsport.

    Was that you flying the plane Drower. I have gone passed a park near Thorten where they fly them also.

    KE, they are pretty cool and you need a bit skill to contol them.

    Yeah takes a bit of time to learn to fly but they aren't that hard. We fly just south of Wollongong.

    I find out if he still races the RC and let you know, somehow I don't think he is to involved as he is racing micro sprints and that takes up a lot of his time now. I do know he did have some races at Castle Hill because I have gone and watched as its not far from my place.

    If I get the chance I will come watch one Sunday and introduce myself if your there.

    After RL I enjoy playing Golf, Cricket, 4WD (heaps of places to go in Perth), drinking and wanking.

    Good Times:D

    Is that a petrol motor?

    Do Electric motor with Lipo batteries go well. That would be my preference.

    That Corsair looks awesome as well.
