OK, here we go...

Xray XB8R -
Kit - $550 (at the time)
RB S5 engine and pipe - $350 (at the time)
Spektrum rx - $120 (more expensive in europe)
Aftermarket Xray CNC shock towers - $90
SEVERAL sets of tires, lets say $200
Futaba S9405 servo - $75 (at the time, in europe)
ACE DS1015 servo - $130 !!!!! (Yes, that's how much they cost here!!!)
Starter box and batteries - $150
Receiver pack - $40
Rough total $1805

Xray NT1 (ooooooh, here we go, this one shocked me with the expenses)
Kit: $600 (yes, that's how much the damn thing costs here [&o])
Engine: RB MatrixR and pipe - $380
Servos: 2x Futaba S9451 - $200
Spektrum rx - $120
Receiver pack - $40
Body and paint - $50
Starter box and batteries (mugen pro start) - $200
Setup tools - Speedmind touring car setup kit - $260
HUDY Board Decal - $15
Xray multi diff - $90
Silicones for shocks - $20

Bear in mind, that's not including about 40 sets of tires at $40 plus per set, and some specialist touring car tools I had to buy, so add another couple of hundred to be on the safe side. Total - $1975

And this is just the 'so far' on the XT8, again europe prices

Kit - $650
Engine and pipe (RB TM928 and 2045 pipe) - $600
Spektrum rx - $120
ACE DS1015 - $130
HPI SF2 servo - $45
Receiver pack - $40
Paint - $30

Rough total - $1615

I have four other models as well, but those are the three killers.

ORIGINAL: fat1

week 1
TTR ST-1 RTR - $370
Fuel (ga.) - $22
Rx Pack - $34

week2
MX-3 FM TX/RX - $65 (ebay)
starterbox - $50
better tires/wheels - $60
batts/charger - $40

week3
O.S. 30vg - $250 (I was too impatient to wait for free warranty replacement)
JP-2 - $60

week4
aluminum clutch setup - $40
clutch bell - $15
screw set - $30

week5
bearging - $10
aluminum clutch setup - $40
16t clutchbell - $15
starterbox - $80
Fuel (ga) - $22

week6
Tires/wheels - $60
aluminum clutch setup - $40

week7
STARTER BOX[:@] - $70 (chrome top baby)


that would be $1400.00 in 7 weeks, based on my age of 29 and my guaranteed early death as a smoker bythe age of 60 I estimate I will spend over $300,000.00. Notice I've only needed to purchase 2 gallons of fuel. Starter boxes arethe devil, I should have got the chrome top first....nuff said
dude, that is alot of stuff in 7 weeks [X(].
