Man you must be as old as me! I still have my original gold chassis RC10 in the garage. Good memories!

I am going to have to say LiPo Batteries.

My first car was a gold tub RC10, back then a big stick pack was 1200mah. I switched to nitro over 15 years ago cause I was sick of dealing with batteries all the time.

I just picked up a LiPo charger and LiPo packs, going to toss them in a T4 and give electric a go again. 20 mins of run time and not worrying about annoying the neighbours will enhance my enjoyment of the backyard.

I would have to say an easy up(I didn't buy it, my brother did). It's a must have at the track, if you don't have a trailer.

X-RAY 808. Never had a DNF since that purchase & maint time was cut in 1/2.
If you feel good about the car you drive you will drive better.

Werks clutch & fuel tie for second.

$1 bearings(any brand) are third.

Why do you need a starter box if you're going all lipo?
