What do you want for Easter ?

The other day my daughter asked me what I wanted for Easter. Other than being ecstatic that she started the conversation in the role of the giver, I had to admit that I had not even thought about it. Being the helping teenager, she suggested an iTunes gift card. This of course is her way of saying that she wanted an iTunes gift card, which I have mentally filed away for the time when my path crosses said item.

Putting together a mythical budget of $200US (no, that's not the Easter gift budget - just a conversation starter), what would be the best addition to the garage ?

Here is my short list, feel free to add anything I might be missing.

  • Brushless motor and ESC for the Rustler. This is an upgrade for 2 trucks as the Rustler VXL-5/Titan 12T combo will be reused in the Stampede to replace the stock setup.
  • Traxxas Slash 1/10 short course race truck (waterproof).
  • Associated RC18 Factory Team aluminum billet set (serious bling for my daughter's truck) plus a 17T mod motor. Oooof - too much power ?
  • Equivalent aluminum parts for her Mini-T
  • New LiPo capable charger
  • Nothing now, put it in the bank towards a Traxxas Summit. Father's Day is coming soon !

    The new Kyosho DRT short course nitro truck is just a bit out of the budget, but looks like quite a bargain. I haven't read a review of the engine performance, but I have yet to see a bad product come out of Kyosho. The oversized fuel tank would be a big benefit for weekend bashing.

    Which of these would be your choice ? Or do you have a better idea ?
