Look at this trick “uni” ball I guess you’d call it? Makes me want to build some carb linkage out of these.. you can change the bushing’s in them too. Serviceable!!!!!!!

An RC track and shop would be a dream😎😎😎😎😎. Wanted to have an RC track before I wanted a VW shop🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫. In fact…. I remember Corporate and I looking at places when we first moved here🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔. Big indoor place.. I like playing with toys.

Yeah, sell me your VW inventory, clean the shop out, and transform it into an RC heaven.
I’m just across the street, so you’ll be able to come over anytime to get a VW part, or hire me for service. 🙂BBWBParticipantDecember 13, 2022 at 8:16 amPost count: 1258
Sounds like a plan of action guys. At least discussion worthy. 🙂

Wish it was that simple. I guess it could be😎😎😎.
Hobby shops are a tough business. And these days, people order online…. And the young kids, they want to play video games and virtual reality games now….. I think maybe you could get some small time club racing going.. but not a “for profit” business with over head..👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 No parking for the amount of people it could draw too. 👎🏻
I’m too worn out to be starting a new business. I don’t care to have that struggle or burden in my life.
but I sure miss weekly indoor RC racing!!! When the place here was hopping we would easily have. 40 racers on Saturday nights .. and everyone was running two classes.. it was competitive and fun in a racing kind of way🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫.

The 1/5 scale Baja has been getting lots of love 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 Hauls balls, throws a great roost!!!! But not enough traction to pull the front wheels🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔.
