    Few bucks in them beasts! Some friends back in Illinois long ago had RC boats. Electric, but bigger (4 figure cost some) fast ones. They had a "tree" out on some pond a golf course, finish tree lights, and took vids boat water line from behind drag racing. Just to cool! That and circle racing, riding along side them in a real boat, etc. About a hours worth the vid. I'll have to watch it later as been awhile.

    Gotta have toys!

    Big boats away, shop "toy time again" too. Got the Slot car drag race set up for the "Happy Hour" for the working stiff gearheads here.."Drags" our rainy season. Plus another dude here sets up a "pellet gun shoot" his big shop, another is a fireworks dealer, and set up "poppers" on a target. And always stop at Good will and pick up a stuffed doll and stuffing out, mix in a bunch, and back in, and end shoot, a "free for all" Last one was Superman! Just too much fun having "stupid fun"! Anyway, the drag strip..

    Needs work as the "differential girdle spring to the upper end the grammy" keeps breaking! Must be the sonisoydil reflex to the two panamertic spuring bearings, from the out of synergy created the reluctance phase detractors out of phase. In layman's talk? Like shifting with out clutching a big worked over block, with a Pinto tranny.
    Its always something!
