havent seen anything like my other hobby on here so figured i would share. these ar 1,18th scale electric radio control cars i custom built and painted. in the pics i have them set up for indoor drifting with a low rpm ,high torque motor and special set of tires and gears. i can set them up with other motors i have and taller gears to hit 45+ mph outdoors.

this is my car and i painted it in a jango fett them. the body is a late 90s supra.
the model or "car" is a X-ray m-18. carbonfiber, aluminum, and titanium upgrades throughout.












thanks for looking and comments are welcome.

That's a pretty cool hobby you have there. Here's my hobby

- Koi Pond Volume 1
- Koi Pond Volume 2

It's true, the PIT doesn't really have many hobbies besides Guitar and fapping but some have a few outside interests. Myself, I'm into Koi, Snooker and Cockatiel breeding.

thats awesome! i also collect knives. have you ever seen a bog garden? i have been thinking of growing one of those full of carnivorous plants. a bog garden would look really nice next to a koi pond.

That's actually not a bad idea - thanks for the suggestion. I have a lot of midges which circulate my pond which are really annoying, even the Koi don't like to get in the way of them. Perhaps a carnivorous plant may help to eliminate those.

Thanks!

i have 4 trucks for me and my kids and whoever comes over. some of the radios use changeabl crystals. my radio is a bit better and uses 2.4 ghz technology with multiple model memorie ( i use 1 controller to control either my on road drifter or my off road truck. it saves al my trims and breaks to a file so when i want to drive my truck i use the same controller.). i can change what channel im on just like on a cordles phone. and the range is farther than you can see. my kids are a bit lower quality. they are an A.M. type. and i have lots of crystals so interference is never an issue.

Unexplained phenomena

I love that sort of stuff, I'm completely fascinated by any good ghost story, UFO sighting, or strange workings of the brain

I have a cockatiel, the biggest BRAT in the world, he likes to sit on my shoulder as I play, chewing on my strap or he sits on my music stand chewing on my tablature. One time he crapped on me, but it landed between the back of my guitar body and my shirt, so when I was done playing, it was crushed and smeared all over my guitar and shirt. I was so pissed off, and he just looked at me and tilted his head. Aw jeez, I love the hell out of the little f*cker!

Besides playing guitar, I also work on hot rods & cars. My dad rides a Harley, so I'll be starting to build one of my own soon. My current project is a '79 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, that I'm turning into a road course racer. Anyone else out there have cars as their hobby?

Here's mine. My bird is a big wh*re. He goes between me, my mom and my dad for head scratches and to be breathed on so he can fall asleep. The vids are like my household, my bird gets fed brown rice and corn for dinner. Spoiled brat!

Tell me about it! All they want is headscratches! My tiels like to headbutt me on the face when they're on my shoulder, evidently looking for headscratches. I'm Chinese and consequently, my tiels eat anything Chinese - noodles and rice which they love as well as anything crispy like potato chips (Cheese and Onion is their favourite). How long have you had your tiels for?

My tiels don't really trust anyone in the family but me.

- And he? Looks like a female, mate.

I've had this one since 1998. We've had others, but sadly have passed away. He's a male. This one trusts anyone as long as one of us (me or my parents) is around. He likes to be on my shoulder ALL the time: showering, going to the bathroom, you name it. Just a big baby!
