Default Best Available Touring Car Racing Equipment

OK, I'd be interested to see what everyone thinks the best currently available equipment setup is for 1/10 scale racing on carpet. I realize that everyone has their own opinions, but I thought it might be interesting. PLEASE don't get bent out of shape. This is just for fun. Please post if you agree with these selections or if you have an alternative. Any piece of equipment required or helpful for 1/10 scale racing is acceptable. For this, let's pretend cost doesn't count.

I'll propose the following...

XRay T2
Airtronics M11 with Spektrum
Airtronics 94360
Competition Electronics Turbo 35 GFX
Competition Electronics 23A Power Supply
Hakko 936 Soldering Station
Hudy Ball Allen Drivers, Hex Wrenches and Body Reamers
Parma Alfa 190mm Lexan Body
Parma Cyan and Magenta Foam Tires
Paragon Ground Effects
AMB Personal Transponder
Robinson Racing Products Pinions
Dean's Speed Jig
Dremel Lithium-Ion Cordless

OK, I'm sure I've forgotten some stuff, but it's a start!

IB3800's for now but GP4300's soon
ESC I'd say QC3 if you could get it.
Interesting thread, it's kind of like a dream setup idea.

For car I think the Corally RDX is just ahead of the T2, and the new Tamiya car may be ahead of that. This coming from a TC4 driver.

Radio is more of a personal preference, but the radio with the most bling is the KO EX-10 Helios. The space shuttle doesn't have that many buttons.

The Trinity Shock is supposed to be even faster. But never tried it personally.

Good point.I've seen them in action and they are great.I was thinking of putting Checkpoint's, but from what I hear they are a better offroad motor.The Reedy's TI and PT are good but not near as fast and low-wearing as the Rev's.

OK, but for the Revolutions, it's gotta be the Rheinhard edition. Those things are wicked fast!
