The best Money I have ever spent on RC was buying my wife her own Buggy. Now that she is hooked it makes it that much easier to buy the things that I want plus I know I'll have a Pit person, substitute Marshal when needed.

I haven't seen this mentioned yet, but definitely worth the 15 bucks at sears. Magnetic bowl, no more lost screws at the track or at home when wrenching on my rc's. Just drop them in the bowl and no worries, plus you can lay out your screws exactly how you took them out so you don't have to remember which screw went where.

I'm a huge fan of pre-glued tires. 20 years ago I would have done them myself as I could use the couple bucks for something else but these days, I'm happy to cough up a few bucks a pair to just toss them on the car.

I've seen that happen and some times it fires right back at you when your wife is ordering more parts than you and comes down to budgeting like.."umm you got your buggy fixed last month so its my turn"

Ice chest full of beer. It makes the after race "bench racing" much more pleasant... and it makes working on the car at home more pleasant too.
