Wow, very nice. I wish I had the money for all that haha.

I bought the RS-4 and the Rush off a friend used for $100. The RS-4 needs a motor rebuild, which I'm just getting a new one. The Rush needs a Differential rebuild. Everything else works.

What do you think of the final order? Is that fuel good? Everything else on there I pretty much need.

Total comes to $137.62 for all that stuff above, except for the mini drill set because you have to be a member or some crap to get it free

You might want to use 20% fuel. 10% is pretty low

If you are looking for somthing cheap to buy to get over a cetain dollar amount, get a 15tooth clutch bell. It'll give you way more top end without sacraficing much punch off the line.

You should also get the racing clutch. Much more durable then the stock shoes.

I bought the car in non-working condition, but he gave me some fuel with it. Not sure how old it is. It's Dynamite Blue Thunder 20%.

Which one on there would I need for this combo? I browsed over a few and I noticed one said that I need different motor mounts than the ones I already have selected? They're like $40 mounts which I'm not doing just for a clutch.

NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT

temporary id.
To use this clutch bell, you must all get A915 (HPIG0915) engine mount,
Z517 (HPIC1297) binder head screws AND Z543 (HPIC0543) cap head screws.

Which of these fuels should I get? This should top off the order.

No, you don't need those motor mounts. The ones you have already selected will work fine.

As for fuel, I use Odonnels 20% myself

I'll just look into the clutch bell another time, or buy it locally. I still plan on getting more stuff from them, but the fuel should bring the price up to where I want it.

Thanks for your help.
