Baja 5B RTR, and then...
Tuned pipe for it
Tarmac Busters for it
Some aluminum
ESP modified 30.5cc engine

Probably $2000 on that thing. Worth every penny though, I've never had as much fun with an RC car as I do with the baja.

The most I spent on an RC was my Mammoth ST valued at about $1,000 I'd say and I think I've put around $500-$600 or so total into my Revo 2.5R. It's part of the hobby, spending money, something I've learned to accept a long time ago.

2.5 revo used for 300, os18tm for 150, other miscellaneous parts about 75. my t4 has burnes a pretty good hole as well. used t4 with mod motor $100, motor was too much for esc so i got a p2k2 for 30. too late esc is already fried new esc for 80. a week later esc gets wet and burns up, new esc 90. 9t motor for 25. p2k2 burns up so i get a 15t for 20. finally decide to go brushless 182. tomorrow i will be spendingabout 90 to rebuild the diff and a few other things. over 600 on my t4

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

245$ on a used RC10GT then 100$ on Arms for it, because i kept hitting the curb.

Then...

130$ for 3 replacement arms, new tuned pipe, Hump pack, duct tape when i was doing dough nuts and the battery pack flew out, causing it to take of at full throttle down my street, and hit a curb, rolled for about 100 feet on it's side (Clocked it at 56mph a week or so before the crash). I ended up duct taping my hump pack in once i got it, wasn't going to take any chances :]

Best part was, after repairing it, it started first pull.
