Monster GT and TT ST-1. I have mainly been just driving the truggy. I am quiet amazed, not to say my MGT was bad, only issue was once a clip holding the one way to the first gear in the transmission broke. That's it though

Yeah, I spend most of my cash on upgrades. The parts I upgrade aren't broken, but I just want them not to break...

So, >$50 per month

it just depends on what you break, what you do with your truck. i usally spend anywhere from 5 to 100 but its never to much for a hobbie you love.
