+1. if you can spend like 300 for pipe and motor, 200 for servos and 150 for remote, you will be so happy.

buy the kit now and take your time building it. then each week or every other week buy something. like one week buy a radio, next a servo, next the other servo, then the next buy a engine and last buy a engine. or something like that. also remember youll need fuel, glow igniter, receiver pack, switch, clutch (the one in the kit is junk), tires, etc. it seems like it never ends .

You better add in another $200 over what you have listed in your previos posts. You'll need a starter box, wheels and tires. Someone already said fuel, fuel bottle, glow ignitor, $20 worth of paint for the body, extra glow plug. All this little stuff will add up fast, and will keep you from getting it going like you want to.
