I am a skilled trade worker (cabinetry) in the construction industry. I would take that money and find some of these crooked @ss contractors who stiff people on payment, rich snobby materialistic homeowners, and everyone else who has money and abuses their position in this harsh economic climate and give them a taste of the reality that most blue collar workers are facing these days. People who take advantage of a person really needing pay by giving them pennies on the dollar for what they are worth need a stiff kick in the financial nuts. That goes for everyone of these dirty politicians that think they are above reproach. Seems like everyday you here of another one getting caught in some money scandal. For the most part though I'd get those I love and care about in a position to where they are able to stand on their own two feet. To top it off I'd get Mugen a decent group of paid drivers to represent the team. Not one truggy or buggy in the A's at the nats. They obviously need some financial backing 'cause the 6 is awesome!

I'd buy a big plot of land. Build a house with a world class 1/8 off road track and a 1/4 mile motorsports complex and race 24-7.

Now picture that that track in dirt. BTW, that's an insane on-road track. those 1/8 scales sound like formula 1 cars.

Geez,you need about 20 marshals for that track
Anyway,I have given this plenty of thought(dreaming)
I would buy the biggest,badass motor home around and build a race shop section in it and cruise around to all the races.
A track at home would also be a mustAh shit,back to work
