Leif has discovered a new hobby - RC cars. I blame (and thank!) Howard for this, but it's ok, because it's definitely a better hobby than just sitting in front of the computer and hacking. His first car was a Mugen Seiki MBX5 off-road buggy which Howard was kind enough to not only pick out the engine, car, radio, and all the rest of the stuff for, but also built it for Leif as well. After seeing the detail on the car, Leif admitted that was probably a good idea.
Not only does Leif have that, but he bought me a Team Losi Mini-LST which I love! A mini car which is battery powered works fine for me. Not to be outdone however, he decided to buy one for himself. We found a dirt area by a local school which is big enough for us to set up our own track and mess around with the cars. A jump of course is also installed when we set up the track. :)
Of course that wasn't enough. He took a friend from work to the local hobby store to check out the Team Losi LST2 monster trucks and bought one as well. 3 cars in a span of 2 months. A monster has been created!
He's dedicated part of his office to playing car mechanic, and calls it "The Engine Room." I laugh when he tells me he's going off to the engine room, but it's ok, he's having fun with it, and it stops him from hacking on the computer too much.
