    A lot of people aren't wired like that...they just want to push and go. They want the fast car kit or cool car model, but would rather buy it already assembled and play with it not realizing that building it is the funnest. I have large 1/4 scale gas R/C cars that I enjoyed building than driving. After the hours of painting the body at the end...I just wanted to put it somewhere and look at it...the same with RTFM. I love buying something and hacking it first to learn and using the manual when I need it, and I mean reading it inside out for what ever you didn't understand during the hacking period and it is all fun. Its the journey(RTFM), not the destination(Treocentral forum).

    I was thinking ahead of my typing. I don't hack with my gas car assembly,not electric...I read the manual from start to finish. I meant I hacked with devices, like the treo, friends 6700, etc., then after I might get stuck, I refer to the manual. I have always been a gear head...like today at work, I was programming our feed robot and we had a mechanical issue with our pneumatic applications, and instead of calling in our maintenance tech's, I hacked on it and figured out the problem myself...hacking is good, as long as you don't hack for destruction, hack to be productive...LOL

    They sure do...I don't think I can go back to electric, but never say never.

    Big black thing ... it has jumper cables which I use with my car battery. Not here right now Or I'd go and get the numbers off it. A buddy of mine has about 9 cars and I went over to his place one night and his bump box was as "robust". I can move the knurled wheel on his cars with my thumb....can't budge the Ofna.

    Ahh this thread brings back memories, I have an ofna gas powered rc car at home that I haven't used in a couple of years but it was awesome building it and driving it. That thing was fast, 50mph!

    If you want to live on the edge, get into 60 size nitro powered Helicopters. Go spend around 3000.00 dollars on a nice fiberglass bodied one, not counting the radio gear, spend a couple of weeks or more building and painting it.

    Then go fly it all day without a mishap.

    Priceless.
