An affordable charger (around $200) that has multible stage charging, temperature peaking, a 30A discharge, and a good motor run in feature, possibly with an rpm sensor of some sort, not a real dyno, but just something that could be a general guideline. It would also be great if it had an equalizing tray built in.

something to make charging and discharging simple, not having to worry about volts, amps, millamps, storing them properly, blah blah blah.

How about a real car dyno! only for 1/8 to 1/18th scale cars, where you actually strap the car down to the dyno with certain motor, gearing batteries/nitro, and see what your real horsepower & torque, you are putting to the wheels!
A dragstrip that gives you ET and MPH
is rather accurate in this regard.
You wouldn't need a very long one for a 1/10th scale car.
In fact, the Gtech device they sell for full-size cars that measures g-force and gives you ET, MPH calculations might just work for a scale car.
they might be a little big...

It would be good if RC was included in the Olympics.

Cheap, lightweight onboard camera that can monitor the car's suspension movement. So I know what's going on with the car's settings throughout the entire lap.

the ability to turn your car on and off from the transmitter
Tekin had an esc that you could hold the brake for a certain amount of time and the car shutoff.
