    i'm on a very limited budget myself, but that's where sites like ebay comes in handy, you can easily choose which parts are best for you, your project, and your budget. I have a $60 a month budget, so I buy one part at a time when buying the most expensive parts, and 2 or 3 at a time for cheaper parts, keeping my purchases close to the budget without going over, sometimes I will have to save 2 or 3 months if I want a particularly expensive item

    I have a 50 dollar a month budget. But, when school is out during summer, I have about a $500 budget per month

    I have seen alot of really cool scale rc snowplow trucks but none of them have a scale rc salt spreader in the back and im not saying then need to have actual salt come out of them but it would be cool to see and a 4 brushless motored rc chevy plow truck would be insanely cool since i only run chevys for plowing

    My friend has had a chevy for 10 yrs and it has over 250,000 miles on it that were all hard miles. It's used as a farm/work truck, and pulls trailers, driven hard, and all original parts. Nothing in the motor has been replaced and it runs great

    keep in mind i enjoy breaking my rc's as long as it isnt total destruction .. and suprisingly with my power house im still running stock inner axles and stock axle gears .. i have crapped out axle bearings .. but when i heard gear skip i stopped and fixed before continuing to destroy my gears .. ( on a side note i do trails and mud ...lots of mud .. and very little crawling .. where i live it is mostly flat land and not many rocks ... ) i also have my controller setup so one of my 3 way switches acts like a top end limiter .. with a low medium and high setting .. so im not full throttle all the time ...
