Smile newbie considering rc8b, someone critique my shopping cart?

Hey all,

I'm looking to get back into the hobby after I took a long break. I had an HPI Rs4 nitro rally and was just too young back then to afford keeping up with the hobby. Now that money is no longer as much of an issue, I also have the time and therefore am looking to get back into rc's! I'm planning on bashing have fun ,and eventually try out some tracks and possibly give racing a shot.

I've read a lot about the AE RC8B and it seems to fit my budget. All the other buggies I've considered (MBX6, Xray808, Hyper 9) are a bit more expensive. Plus I get to build it!

Below is the shopping cart I've put together on AMainhobbies so far. Please critique it and let me know if I'm spending money where I don't need to and vice versa. Again, money isnt as much of an issue but spending wisely goes a long way as well.

Some items such as fuel and paint arent included because I will be going to a LHS for that (Houston anyone?)

btw, is there any reason why I would want a Baja 5B SS? i'm intrigued.. anyways here's the list!
