So, I was just looking at the "If you had $1000" thread and it got me thinking.

I sometimes catch myself thinking about what ONE RC I would get if I had unlimited funds, for racing and for bashing. To be honest I think of different one's all the time, but I'll list the ones in my head at the moment. It can get a bit challenging to decide, but that's part of the fun!

No need to list things like certain LiPo's, tools, chargers, etc, as it is obvious you'd get the best available for your situation. Feel free to list any/all upgrades, I'm just going to put "all the fixin's" simply because there are so many options. Please at least list what Motor/ESC or Engine you would have, along with the car.

This is purely for fun/entertainment and I'd like to see what other people would do with unlimited funds in this hobby. Please no criticism or pointless posts.

List 'em up! I'll start.

Racing :
Team Losi SCTE with all the fixin's.
-Tekin RX8 with Tenshock SC411 4600kv
-White & Blue custom paint scheme

Bashing :
Losi 5T with all the fixin's.
-Brushless Conversion
-Castle Mamba XL2 & 2028 Series Motor
-Black & Yellow custom paint scheme

My goodness that one would be fun!

Nice! I was also thinking about a Pro4 or maybe a Novak 550, but I have never owned a Novak so I'm not sure of them. Plus.. you have unlimited funds, so who cares if your motor burns?

Yeah losi 5ive-t. But no electric conversion, I like the roar of the gas engine .

Or, completely design my own 5-scale car.
