I need ideas for all parts for chassis and so on. I will list the real specs of the actual car so you guys can come up with ideas. The car can be electric or nitro powered and i don't want an RTR, I am willing to spend as much money as I can to get parts suggested. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

my budget is no more than $1350, I will be using it for racing and drive around my street. I have $1350 to spend, but I am trying to spend about $800. The car I will be using is a FT TC3.

that a nice budget.

what do you have so far?

if you are starting fresh I would look for a 75mhz FM radio and reciever. (you could go all digital but it gets a LOT more expensive) Then 2 high torgue high speed servos. A hump reciever pack (you will need a charger too)

as for the engine I can't help you on choices (but you will need an ignitor, and should consider a starter box)

people will add more.

Actual speed of a scale rc car compared to a full sized one is slower, in scale a 50mph 1/10th car is like doing 500mph. Since budget is not an issue, why not go with a 1/5th scale?
