    Open up a track as a transition business. R/C racing would be easier on the ‘ol back.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds like a plan of action guys. At least discussion worthy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wish it was that simple. ย I guess it could be๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž.
    Hobby shops are a tough business. ย And these days, people order onlineโ€ฆ. And the young kids, they want to play video games and virtual reality games nowโ€ฆ.. ย I think maybe you could get some small time club racing going.. ย but not a โ€œfor profitโ€ business with over head..๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป ย No parking for the amount of people it could draw too. ย ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป

    Iโ€™m too worn out to be starting a new business. ย I donโ€™t care to have that struggle or burden in my life.

    but I sure miss weekly ย indoor RC racing!!! ย  When the place here was hopping we would easily have. 40 racers on Saturday nights .. ย and everyone was running two classes.. ย it was competitive and fun in a racing kind of way๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ๐Ÿคซ.
