Favorite gift this year? - 12.25.2011, 09:08 PM

Kind of a throwback to the old schoolyard topic of what everyone got this Christmas. May seem materialistic I know but we all have diferent flavors here and some like myself are satisfied very simply sometimes. Anywho other than being able to spend this Christmas with the wife and kids instead of working was fabulous. On top of that my wife suprised me with crispy mnm's. I know it's kinda wiered but evidently they stopped making/selling them in the USA a while back. So now it would appear that Germany is the country that knows what's up with the crispy candies! Now sitting here dining on some German mnm's! Ahh life's simple pleasures.

Sorry it wasn't a story about me running over the neighbors cat @ 100mph with my new traxxas cause I was staring at my iPhone dashboard texting while driving! Ha ha!

Anyone else get anything cool?

No one to buy me any goodies so I bought some for myself. Replaced my aging Craftsman cordless tools with some Dewalt tools, bought a RC10R5 Oval, FT RC10 T4.1, and a tire truer

Nice to see some other Union Brothers in here! I'm a sheetmetal worker, Local 58. Unfortunately I've been out of work 75% of the year. Different unions but we're still a dying breed

for me, it's a toss up between the used slash 4x4 i bought myself or the Dr. Dre Solo HD headphones i got.


They say a good mechanic only needs 2 tools - WD40 & Duct tape. If it moves, and its not supposed to, duct tape. If it doesn't move, and its supposed to, WD40.

Right on fellas. I'm from Lu 396. Would have to sadly agree that the once strong unions and their pride and quality work are looking like a thing of the past nowadays. Sad to hear some brothers are not working. This year was good I guess. Worked about 10-11 months this year. Glad to see fellow members enjoying some of the fruits of their labors. +1 on the bluray and surround, it's pretty awesome. Also glad to hear som r/c is happening for others. Haven't ran any of my rigs since we moved north on mothers day.

My boss gave me a Thunder Tiger EB4 G3 for Christmas. Thought that was very nice of him. Sadly I haven't had a chance to open the box yet. Hopefully soon.

A nice, thick base non-stick frying pan that won't warp, silverware, a bunch of gift cards (lowes, bed bath & beyond) and a week off to spend them on the stuff I need to finish moving into my first house.

No rc presents for me, though I did give the gift of rc. A new servo for my nephews Ofna buggy I built him last year, and a spare 1520 for my brother inlaw's muggy.

I got me a set of 5.5" crawler tires for my Rustler, which is running with a used 1900kv Tekin buggy motor I got from ebay for cheap. Runs on two 2s and timing boost. Hella fun. Mrs. got me a 10-24mm Tamron lens for my camera.

Remote start for my truck for me. I really don't need any new rc gear. Heck, after 5 vehicles, parts and batts, don't need much more. Although, for my b-day a few weeks ago, I did treat myself to a new Ten T w/the RCM conversion kit already installed :)

I think so...seems like a great little truggy. Running on a 3s set up with a Tekin 2650 and MMP with a sensored setup it is soooo smooth. Haven't had a lot of run time but, so far me likey!!

It replaces my crt.5 which I thought was a little to brittle for my liking
