Jimmy's HPI Savage 21

My girlfriend and I decided to play a little hookie today. Both of us called in sick because, frankly, work is not fun. Definitely not as fun as eating at IHOP. After downing some stuffed french toast, we drove to Pompano Beach to check out Southeast R/C. Nice little hobby shop. Well organized. A little too out of the way for general use.

Then we picked up my gf’s daughter from daycare and spent our afternoon at Brian Piccolo Park. I whipped out my Savage with the killer front bumper ornament and shredded the cricket fields. Yes, there are cricket fields at Brian Piccolo.

Regarding my new hobby, R/C is crazy fun, but wicked expensive. There are so many upgrades for these trucks, I really can’t keep up. But it’s still cool and I highly recommend everyone get an R/C car. It’s just nice to drive recklessly without any fear of the po-po. Word.


  1. R/C is pretty fun, and yes, it can be really expensive. You’ll see what I mean when you move to gas-powered stuff. I have an RC-10 World’s Car Electric Buggy that I used to race with friends at a local park in Southern California.

    My friend Bruce was one of the officers for the Southern California Organization of R/C Helicopters (SCORCH) and that is REALLY expensive. You spend about $2,000 to build the helicopter and each time you crash it it costs about $200 in parts to fix it again. It’s crazy.

    My advice, stick to electric and gas-powered cars. And if you really want to fly, airplane gliders are cheap.
