Welcome. I was the same as you and got out of it for a long stint (15 yrs) and just got back in a few months ago. Post up some pics we love pics :)

New member here. Been out of the RC world for over 20 years.have two small children who have been into it now. So I get an excuse to come back to the RC world. So many changes! Just put together a Clod for my five year old. Starting upgrades now. I will post pics when I can.

Welcome clodder99. It's amazing how much the tech has evolved isn't it. It blew my mind some of the things that have changed when I jumped back in.

So many changes for the good when it comes to tech. I remember when everything was manual speed controllers. Lol however I am sad to see there are very few kits anymore, seems that everything is RTR. I always loved building kits. Sad to see they’re almost all gone.

Yeah totally agree with ya on that. IMO building was half the fun when you bought a Rc car/truck. At least the super clod still is a kit. I just wish some of the others came in kit form as well.

Hello all, just getting back into this after many years off. It's amazing how much some things have changed and how some haven't at all.

Have a few questions, is the classified section off limits to new peeps with low post counts? I could't get access. Also is there anywhere besides ebay to look and or possibly trade clod parts? Thanks in advance.

Yup, we encourage members to be active and get to know each other before letting them into the BST area. Makes for happier trade environment. The post count is pretty low, something like 20 or 25, so get in there, and interact with everyone. 8)

No worries i'll post a few here and there and get my posts in. I had a chance to see a buddies car today(something losi) i couldn't believe how fast that thing went! He offered to let me drive and i putted around and really enjoyed it. He said i had a grin from ear to ear.
