Costco - $30 - AWESOME

In my hung over state on Sat Afternoon, a few of us went to Costco for Pizza and walked out with these - Just spent the past 30 mins in my Garage racing them - (1) Black Ford GT - (1) Red Ferrari F60 and my Silver Ford GT - Proud to say the Silver took the cup - Speed and distance AND skill - I RULE !!!!!

What a blast for $30 - Get about 20 mins of good use then 10 of blah - PLENTY of laughs though - Took 'em off some sweet jumps too

The red on the GT is from a Pit Move gone wrong by the F60 - HA

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Cheap R/C cars can be a blast. I raced real R/C cars for awhile. Heck I traveled farther racing R/C cars then I do for track days!

A few of us bought $10 zip zap and raced them in my dining room and it was just as fun.

Here's a pic from 2006. What is scary is there is close to about $700-1000 worth of crap in this picture.
