    Carnage

    Got the car, opened the box, charged the battery, took it out, ran it off the driveway, hit the septic cleanout, broken a arm. LOL. Some RPMS on the way.

    You aren't kidding! I have purchased a lot of stuff for this thing already. I didn't realize how expensive (addicting) it is...
    - Cooling fan for ESC
    - Proline Raptor Body
    - Proline body mounts
    - Proline wheels and trenchers
    - Dusty motors cover (lcg)
    - Badhorsie Shock Covers
    - MIP X-Dutys
    - Tekno Big Bone driveshaft
    - RPM bulkhead
    - RPM A Arms (2 sets of 2 sets blue/black)
    - 3 sets of Avid Bearings (took advantage of free shipping)
    - a few bodies to mess around with and some other misc crap like screws and stuff

    I live in the middle of nowheresville so I have to stock up on some things. That's why I bought multiple bodies and A Arms, as well as some screws, body mounts, bearings, etc. I figure I would only change things out as they break (except for the MIPs, those are going on now that one of the wheels is practically hanging off).

    The wife says to me, "How much have you spent on this thing?", my response... "About 40 bucks"

    LOL.....That was the appropriate response!! My guess would be the wife's response was an eye roll and a head shake as she walked away. At least that's how it works at my house.
