Started off the hobby when I got a holiday buggy for Christmas. Built it with dad and it was the days of a slow charge with a very short running time. Then we were lucky enough for our teacher at school to run car club after school.loads of us with cars that never ran for long. We were responsible for putting LEDs in our transmitters to Make sure the battery's went flat faster! Got back into it thanks to my old mate's lemon slip,foo and Ady still into tamiya from school and mr C's car club.
