A new set of wheels for my old truck. Factory alloy wheels off a 2020 going to replace the stock steel wheels from 2005. Paid $180 for the set, overall condition 9.5/10. No curb rash on any of them.

Got a new wallet I bought myself for my birthday and I really like it. Itís small and holds cash folded in 3rds on the inside. One cool thing I found is I can turn on an off RFID protection with my metal Amazon Prime credit card. If I put the prime card in the business card slot, thereís not signal protection and I can unlock my car by just holding the wallet up. But if I put the metal card on top of the stack, it blocks the signal.

I bought a couple AWANFI 2 cell shorty 4600 100c lipo packs For$45. I bought a couple in June and I can't say I've been disappointed. They perform well with plenty of punch for a 17.5 buggy. After about 40 cycles, the IR specs are really good. So I decided to buy a couple more.

I bought a couple back in October. $45 for two, you can't go wrong. They held up pretty good. Not issues and the buggy performs the same as my Orion 4500 does. I'm pretty sure they are not really a 100c, but they still have really good punch. I would not hesitate to race with them.

I'm jealous that you have cash in your wallet. I had cash in my wallet once. Some how, my wife and kids knows it's there. Reminds of the the TV show "Married With Children."

buddy of mine started keeping to wallets because of that. kept one with his license and credit cards with a few bucks in it. kept another one with cash stashed in his truck. he figures if someone breaks in and finds it and steals it he still wont loose as much as his wife and kids would take from him over the long run

I hide my cash in my cell phone case. Problem is, I have to take my case off to get it.
