Default Which would you get?

Hey I'm having a hard time figuring out what to get at my local hobby shop. If you could list 1-6, (1 being what u would get first) which items would u get. Heres the list. XXX Main book, Titanium hinge-pins, Titanium screw kit, Lightweight CVD's, Battery tray. The screws hing pins and the CVD's would be for the XXX-S. If you guys could give your opinion i would appriciate it. Or list what you would get with 60 bucks. I dont need tires batteries or a body so u could take that out of your list to post.

Thanks

You will get more out of the tray than any of the others, its a worth while expense that saves you money in the long run

tray!!!! no second thoughts - get a tray with a .9 volt per cell automatic cut-off. batteries are quite expensive so it best that you keep them in racing form as long as possible.

great trays
- yokomo rayspeed exceed
- integy discharge tray with .9 volt cut off
- novak smart tray (in my opinion this is the best)

If you plan on racing the XXX Main book is the #1 thing on that list you should get, it's the one thing that can actually make your car noticiably faster.

but a car with poorly taken care of batteries cant go fast, for long...go with the tray..and use the leftover $$$ for practice time...that way you improve driving skills, and utilize the battery tray

I raced without a tray for a long time running expert mod classes without any problem. I honestly didnt notice a difference when I started using a tray, the only difference I noticed was when I started dead shorting.

A person can always but new cell to make them fast and motors and chassis. But if you knew all about setting up a car you will be able to race anything. If you have the book and have at least a general knowledge of all the info in there. Then the rest is just a waste of money. Get the book and save the rest for all the stuff you are going to want once you have the knowledge you will get from it.
my .02$

The fastest thing you can take to the track is KNOWLEDGE.
