All the stuff the worlds drivers enjoy! ....that'll be fun.....'cos I can afford them ( if I could) without the sponsors giving me the pressure.

Edit: Sorry, Misread your post

I'm not sure what chassis I'd have....Been wanting to try a Yokomo but haven't had the money. Also like looks of the Corally RCX

I'd get some Sorex tires (20-36 for pavement and carpet)
A JR XS3 PRO, A digital/metal gear Airtronics servo, Keyence Rapida Speed Control, SMC Matched GP3300's and a Paradigm-Tuned Monster stock

All of the current batch of Tourers are great.

Personally, I have been happy with my Mi2's They are durable and fast, easy to setup and respond well to changes.

I prefer belted cars, so the next choice would be an Xray.

As far as electonics.

Whichever top radio fits your hand best and feels good.
JR R1, Helios, 3pk, M8 ,they are all awesome.

Top Charger, Turbo 35 GFX

ESC, all of th top ones are good too. I like the Keyence, but Q2 or Ko or Novak Gt7 are good as well

If it would be on the car get the TRF 415 will all its factory hop-ups. If FT TC3 get all the factory hop-ups with BMI or IRS chassis.. Get the best motors in ORION/novak brushless motors/corally. radio JR XS3 or 3pk will do.. turbo 35 gfx will be one.. batteries get the matched/zapped ones.. electronics esc novak/keyence will do..
