The RC car, and New years

New years was fun, spent some time at Mom and Dads house with Tyler, Jissi, Clint and family. We ate some good rice, meatballs, cookies, and a few other snacks. We played some poker, some blackjack, some Xbox on the 14′ screen, played with Trenton’s new RC car, then we broke Trenton’s new RC car. Then we drank some, blew some stuff up, and went to bed.

After getting up in the morning we spent most of the day just being Lazy.

The car a bit Busted up

Trenton and I split the price of a Nitro Methane powered RC car. It is a fun toy and It will be a great new learning experience for Trenton. He got his first big taste of what things cost, and how hard it is to make the money to buy the toys that he wants. Even more he learned what it feels like to invest so much into something and then have it destroyed. He made a wonderful comment yesterday. He says “Dad I when we get the car fixed can we just put it on eBay and sell it, it is too expensive.”

The car cost Trenton 90$. We finally got it on the 30th. Then we had to go get Gas and a Plug warmer, and some other bits, that cost him another 30$. We got the car all setup, adjusted the carburetor and took it for a quick spin around the yard. Wow this thing does like 40 miles an hour, has no reverse and is very hard to control in such a small area. Dad suggests that we take it up to the Collins house and drive the car in the back yard. At the Collins house Trenton starts off by running into the only solid thing in a huge open field. That was not that bad of an impact, it only exploded the front bumper.

After about another hour of driving it around we decided to use a door as jump. On the second run up the door Trenton slammed into the Door hinge and blew up the right control arm. The car is now grounded until we can find a US parts supplier.
