Default Anyone into RC cars?

I was just wondering if anyone was into them, as I've just recently picked up my first 'name brand' rc car.

Team Associated RC18B2

It's only a 1/18th scale, but it's pretty quick with a 2S lipo battery and a 6100KV brushless motor.

Don't mind the paint, this thing is upside down usually 2 or 3 times a run on pavement so pretty paint wasn't my main concern.

Anybody else into these?

Yup. My house is a Traxxas house. We have 1/16 Erevos for the kids and I have a 1/10 Nitro Revo. We rip up the skateboard parks. I have a whole RC box full of spare parts like arms and linkages and stuff for when parts break. Mines hopped up with RPM arms and linkages and tons of Integy parts. The gearing is all changed up for metal gears as well. Shes fast.

Made the same body as my full size chevy. I like pulling up in this truck to play with the little one.

We're a Traxxas house as well. I have a 2009 Model Traxxas E-Maxx and my oldest son has a 2010 model Stampede. No major upgrades on either one. Mine has Integy aluminum bulk heads, skid plates and bumpers. My sons Stampede has an RPM skid plate/bumper and both have a bit of new original Traxxas parts from all kinds of crazy fun. I'm also looking at getting a Traxxas QR-1 for those times I want to do some RC stuff and don't feel like going outside to do so.

Would love to go brushless/LiPo on both but we've broken so many things (from wrecks, no fault of the vehicles themselves) that I shudder to think how much more we could/would break with that much more speed and power, lol. It's actually quite amazing just how much abuse these things can take without completely exploding or disentegrating.
