Same can be said about cars/trucks as well. I remember all the constant fiddling... running around with the body off so I could tweak it just right... then put the body on and it would die . Or, trying to get it started forever and ending up with a face full of fumes. Good times!

There is something to be said for the sound, though. Gotta love the snort of a high-compression nitro engine (or 10).
