Default Ultimate Race Truggy

I dream of the day when I win the lottery and can spend a rediculous amount of money on the ultimate race truggy. I am fairly sure many people out there have had the same thoughts. I was just curious to know what are some of the dreams other people were having. So, money not being problem, what kind of truggy would you build? What kind of engine, radio and other items?

thanks..guess I should have made that one clear..lol..I use the RB motor on slicker tracks..it has a very smooth power delivery, I use the 21-7 on bigger wide open tracks..I know guys will say neither motor is fast....but the 21-7 FMS is brutally fast..I have yet to be passed down any straight by anyone or any motor..[sm=lol.gif].

If I was a millionaire, I'd build a scale Truggy. It'd be like 12 feet wide and 18 feet long and have a top fuel dragster motor in it with a 100 gallon gas tank. And room for 4. lol
