I only have one but i can list past cars i owned. Right now I own a Losi xxx-s, and I used to own a Hpi Sport 2, Hpi Pro 3, and a ym34 type T which i just sold recently to a friend. All three cars were sold to friends. I feel like I need new cars now.LOLz

When you spend between $500 and $700 per car including electronics and hop-ups...this hobby can get very expensive.

Uhhmm....I have 13 cars X $600 = OUCH!

I think I got lucky with some of my cars except for the older ones. I got my TA04S for less than 100 bucks that's lower than any other store in America. I think I spent too much on my ESC. I blew up four of them (one cuz I love racing in the rain so much and three without warning...they just go kapoot) and I made a mistake early for buying AM radios. I could've saved up my money and buy mid/high end FM radios instead of those crappy radios and glitching phrone receivers. Most of my cars are second hand projects but I hope that I can get new ones soon (and hope I do not spend $600 a piece like Telengard). =)

P.S to Telengard: you want to know not to spend too much over your car kit? It is called crystal-less radio system. JR just put out XS-3 for about 240 bucks. Buy one and just buy the receivers afterwards (they're about 75 bucks a piece...cheaper than xxtra)

fabolousRC, unfortunately on all my RC's I have standardized on the Airtronics recievers so I can't go crystal free on them. But I did get the new NOVAK Switch Sythnesized M8 module for my Airtronics M8 Radio. That thing rocks!

So I'm half way there.....
