A good set of high quality tools, hex and ball end, w/matching nut drivers, and every other possible tool, all from the same company all in a nice little case...probably HUDY, so it would match my setup station. A B5 w/2013 and 2057 pipes...a case of fuel, tires and spare parts...in that order.

Lately, Ive been trying not to spend money on too many expendable items. In this hobby, tools are one of the few things that when well maintained and taken care of, you can use as much as you need, will last you your life in the hobby and still be worth a little something if you decide to sell it.

I've had that happen before... identical paint jobs on the buggies... we got tangled, I ended up trying to drive the wrong car!

I'd buy either an 09 spec XT8 or an MBX6T, another engine, and tires.

If it was free money, i would buy as many RTR buggys as i could get and when a father and son ask me at the track about getting into the hobby i would hand them a rtr and get them started. i think it is better to get more people involved in our sport. option 2 would be to put it into the bank and use it for travel money to big races.

I would get a new os speed II (I love these engines) and 2 more JR high volt servos 9100hvs & 9100hvt. Then I would get them from carolinasrc.com and pocket the 7% savings. Last thing I would buy is a case of coldfusion fuel 30% magic blend. Great stuff.

I'd get myself an 8th scale BL powered setup... just to try it and see the face on my fellow IC junkies at the track

I'd buy about 50 ST-RR front suspension arms, cuz I keep breaking the damn things! Oh, and perhaps an air conditioned driver's suit...it's HOT in NorCal!! Maybe I should just buy Franks old stuff
