Default What the most you ever spent in one visit to the shop?

I'm sure many have spent more than me. The most I've spent in one visit is $310 for a SC10 and a battery.

In a single visit...hm...gotta be about $1200 (when I bought the FG roller). But that's not really representative. Since March I have spent several thousand dollars split over a fair number of online and local stores (amainhobbies has already done very well from me this year). Migrating my collection from nitro/gas to electric has not been cheap. Some models have gone, some have been converted, and new models have been bought.

The big surprise was the AE RC18B/T2 which has been a time and money sink. Well over $400 in it already and still not happy with it. It's getting shelved for a while now that my conversion kit for the mugen truggy has arrived.

Mugen+Truggy+2200kv+6s lipos=THE MADMAN.

$800 when I bought a used 1/5 scale off the owner of a local hobby shop.

2nd would be the purchase of a Savage 25 RTR, back when the value of the Canadian dollar was nothing. Walked out of the shop with the truck, glow plug heater, spare glow plugs, transmitter/receiver batteries, fuel bottle, and a gallon of fuel for $750. Ouch.

My biggest hobby shop bill was a hair over $5,400. That was a fun visit. 2 Kyosho MP-5s (primary and backup car), 3 Rossi gold head engine (ceramic coated piston) and pipes, FG on-road, and miscellaneous parts.

About 150 bucks. Bought a Mini-T in one once. Everything else big I've bought online.


My biggest Tower order is 149 bucks. Bought my 18CVRX, a failsafe, some clutch bell bearings, and I used a 20 dollars off code on that order too.
