I think it doesn’t count because it is required to race in UK i would assume?

Fortunately I placed my MCI order a couple of days ago. Next order will probably come from Amazon vouchers,  so that's not really buying anything ;).

Most clubs require it after a 3-race grace period. Some demand it straight away.

So far today:

  • Boomerang Manual and Decals (1986)
  • Lola T94/00 Manual
  • Street Devil Manual

Got some offers out there as well to see if sellers will bite

Placed an order with Modelsport just as they were singing Auld Lang Syne on the street. Then placed an order with Asiatees a few hours ago.

Does a broken Novak esc from the 80s count because it was free (for my Clear RC10) display only?

I have not yet submitted any orders this year, no. But I have packages arriving tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, and Monday that were bought last week.

Not quite.  I ordered a transmission for my Dakar truck build on 31st, when I discovered the one I had put aside for it wouldn't work.

However since the start of the holidays I have been listing out all the tools I'd like to buy to improve my workflow, and since the weekend I've been listing all the sundries, hardware and misc things I'll need to finish the Dakar truck.  I think all of January's disposable is going to be spend on nuts, screws and plasticard :o

Not yet, but got my eye on an M08 chassis and HPI’s Datsun 510 body.

Nope. I've not run a load of trucks I already have for ages, and I've now got enough that keeping and running what I've got should keep me occupied for a while.

I do have a small brushless system, servo and receiver free, so I could look into perhaps converting something hobby grade. I have looked at a few conversions of the carrera Mario cars (I think @GeeWings has done one?) that is a little tempting.

I've spent a lot on them for a while, so I may just to back to my other hobbies of reading, xbox or tv to save some cash!

@Nikko85the Mario kart base I used was the Jakks Pacific:

But I also used parts from bigger Mario RCs. I don't remember the manufacturer but they were much larger and I used the engine model and Exhausts:

I never seem to have time for RC at the moment but I did dust off the SW01 Donkey Kong ride I started early in 2023. The kids gave me some challenges to add so I’m working on that and hope to finish it this week.

I’ve also got another hornet that I’ve shorted even further but I’m not sure how I’m actually going to squeeze all the electronics in it!

And because I’m a hoarding idiot I’ve also just purchased a Barbie corvette to RCify!

I must have about 10 unfinished projects. So I’m really trying not to buy new kits until I’m all caught up…
