    Unhappy probably getting out the hobby

    yesterday i found out my hobby shop caught on fire and is probably not going to reopen. and as many of you know i have been putting together a rc8be which is a racing geared buggy. its my only rc car and i have about 900$ in all the stuff into it. and if the hobby shop decides not to open up ill be selling all my stuff besides my helis and moving on to either dirtbikes or mountain biking. i dont plan on making any moves until 4-6 weeks and that would be plenty of time for the hobby shop to know if they are rebuilding or closing shop. sorry guys, but all in all this has been a great hobby to be in

    the next closest track is 1:30hr away so it would be a 3 hr trip there and back and i cant ask my parents to do that every weekend. so i can race. and the turn out wasnt so great it was really slow actually so its all up in the air at the moment

    I think if you already have the money sank in, finish it and run it as a light basher for awhile and see if you like it. If so keep it and maybe in the future, a new track will pop up closer to you.

    Most of my tracks besides 3 are far. All 3 close run 1/8 but there small. Thats why its always good to know other racers. I tag along with them and give them some gas money or help em pit. Just hang on to it and wait a little. You done dumped all u got into it and wont get what u put into it. Better off keeping it for a little to see what happens. Find a field and grab a shovel. I dont think they will just shut down cus a fire if they were pretty well off.

    Hang on in there buddy, don't leave the hobby, I agree with anderson. Run it on the street for a while, even make your own track. Get some buddies together and bash. You never know, a few months down the line a new track may open up. Or there may even be one closer to you then you think, have a chat with some other racers and see what they say

    Good Luck!

    I'm sure you could get the parts you need online? Then simply use it for bashing. But if you wana move on sell it and good luck with whatever else you decide to take up if this doesn't work out
