Want a truggy, but don't have the money, space, or time. One reason things accumulate is that in the last 2-3 years resale prices have become so stupidly low that I just choose to keep stuff. And am constantly struggling to be more disciplined to not buy new stuff - especially engines. Being a sucker for a deal is one of my main "issues"..
The engine hoarding is my main problem..I've bought 12 in just the past couple years, which is quite a bit for me..being that I'm not a 'hard core' racer. I can't seem to be able to help myself in that department.

As far as kits go, I've managed to be more disciplined..although I have to constantly kick myself in the @ss to keep from pulling the trigger on extra stuff..I recently thought about maybe getting a Serpent Buggy.. then thought perhaps an 8 2.0 would suit me better..or maybe an extra 'parts truck' for my XXL..then I read up on the 5T..nitro boats are pretty cool too.. AND there are plenty of parks around here for some r/c plane action..Arrgghhh!!

How do you retire a buggy that was just released?

I only have 2 right now.
Xray XB9
Xray 808

I was considering converting the 808 to electric, but I think I'm just going to get another XB9 and covert it.
