Big bores are nice but there goes your entire gift. They are nice but not required to win races. Tires, and servo are. Not sure on the 995 but I would get something guaranteed to be awesome like a JR 9100S. If you don't have it already a 2.4Ghz radio. A Speky 3.0 can be had for about that much.

Not neccissarily but I think part of the fun is building a buggy that looks kick ass. Im just bashin around with it at this point but I do want to get into racing in a few months. So Big bore shocks or a servo or a pipe seems to be what im hearing? Wheres a good place to order these parts from? Cuz I can rely this info into my LHC and they will order it from wherever is cheapest. Thanks guys!
