Personally what I would do is liquidate all of your current equipment and buy all new stuff. Then I would invest 5K in a Roth IRA then put back another 5-7K for a rainy day then travel to all of the major races throughout the year. For instance a RC Pro race in each division, Buggy/Truggy Nats, The Farm's Benefit race and possibly Neo09 over at Harper Adams, UK if there is still openings. Also another thing to do is move to socal get a whole in the wall apartment for 6months and club race 3 times a week while working some lame ass job to pay for rent. Definitely dont blow all 30K. The stock market is prime for the taking.

ohhh I have an idea....!

Put it all on red in Vegas! You might end up with $60K. Then you could party, travel , race, and invest!

or not.

$30 000

82 dollars a day.

Club day and big race entry fee's for the year $$$$$

Accomadation. for each travel away event. $$$$

rc consumables $$$$$$

living expences $$$$$$

i am thinking if you want to be competitive and do all the events.

$30 000 will only get you 6 months of racing.
