Well, that's your call. As rc-zombies said earlier, "Buy what you can afford". R/C is an expensive hobby and it's not necessary to buy the most expensive stuff to have fun. Don't get caught up in all the hype.

Also, have you checked out the "For Sale" forum. You can find some pretty good deals out there.
Took me years and years before I was able to get a good set of tools.... Practice with your car and have fun... We're all in this hobby to have fun...winning is not everything. I may not be on the podium all the time...but I have fun racing and helping fellow racers out the best I can.

2 years ago I entered a Pro10 race... I knew of this guy that bought everything brand new and top of the line, new car, motor, esc, etc........and you know what... I beat him with a 6year old car, 2year old cells, motor and tires....

Cuda guys,

FYI, just a heads up since I'm getting rid of some previously ran packs in the for sales section. They'll mount just perfectly on the perfect R2 chassis.

e.g. red xenon 1 rear hub carriers, seems like the stock hubcarriers have 2 of toe in !
but the xenon hubcarriers are heavier then the stock ones and the have a little play
well the stock ones wer binding
take a look at the picture, the xenon hubs have a diffrent bearing location
Hmm, I propably would have never noticed the bearing placement myself, but I wonder what the reason for that is...
