Default Hypothetical decision

I am looking to get a truggy, and let's just say I had $800 to get either:

Truggy
Tuned pipe
2 servos

OR

Truggy
1 servo
Motor
Bump box



I already have an LRP Spec 3 broken in, so a motor is not necessary, plus I have an Ace servo I would throw on the throttle.


What would go with and why, given this price limit/part requirements?
Also, what websites would you get them at?

Losi 8T 2.0,

Novarossi n21b limited edition,

Dynamite 086 pipe,

Hitec 7955 steering servo, and use your ace for throttle,

Ofna truggy start starter box.

That LRP will be a fuel hog. The nova will get tons better milage and make plenty of power.

"That LRP will be a fuel hog"


^^^^^MASSIVE understatement lol, am only getting ~7 minutes of bashing in in my MGT, only run maybe 3 tanks in a day with it, on the weekends, couldn't afford the gas if I ran it much more .


Also, $800 is my ABOSLUTE top, but I switched the 2.0 to the 1.0, and now I just need to find something to bump the total up $28.

D8T $419, you choose the rest just run the mill you have and run a small venturi in it that is what I would do as I dont do .28's but they arent bad motors at all I had 1 of them in my MT days. I also suggest the 7955 for steering other than that it on you. And you still got dam near $300 for what ever else you need and the truggy just came out like a week ago and its awesome.
