Mikey,

"All you need . . . is love! John Lennon, shot in the back, very sad."

Anyway, Ricky says you need:

Lots of Thousand Island Dressing, rubbers (xxx-large), and a dwarf, who is wearing a top hat, with a mouse in his pocket who is reading a magazine, while nibbling on what is just hanging around!"

Ok, this is what I have:

Novak Super Sport ESC/5800 Motor
Novak XXL F.M. Receiver
A 4200 mAh pack from cheapbatterypacks.com
A better servo (which opens the door to a variety of set-up options)
Jena67 (Antonio's various Kits for Ricky) i.e. Chain Conversion Kit, Gyro Kit, Bearing Kits for the steering, and back wheel, and rear swing arm.

dammachines.com is also a good source for upgrades.

But for now especially if $$$ is a issue then just up the mAh on your pack, and enjoy then the electronics then the upgrades. The original belt and gearing will last for a little while, depending how rough you are!

Ricky says: ". . . . . . ."

Sorry, he passed out.

Have fun, and watch out for things that dangle and mice!

You should also get a nice dirt track with a jump or two!

I can hunt around. I mentioned ebay cause I just bought one for 50.00 slightly used, which I dismantled for back-up parts.
