I would rebuild both my buggy and truggy with new parts. My cars are held together with CA glue and threadlock because I hate ordering online. A $5 part turns into a $300 order way too fast.

Some parts, a lot of clutches, TIRES+1,000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000 (you can never have enough tires) Either a new engine or parts to rebuild my current mills. I know how it is to come into some money and have to choose what you want to get.

I have both the losi buggy and truggy 2.0 with a grp .21 and a OS vspec. I even have the Nova +4 and the Nova toro nero brand new in a box for next season. But yet i still want more mills and maybe even try out the D8 buggy and truggy. I may sell/trade the losi for the hot bodies.

Good luck with whatever you get and let us know what you decided.

dont forget those TIRES!!!

-John
