    I'd go with Ultimate Slash with Losi Ten-T shocks.
    My Black & Blue Rally is faster than your color...

    I've actually been thinking about this a lot, I want to race a different class sometime in summer. But I haven't made my mind up if it'll be SCT or 4WD buggy.

    In terms of SCT, I've been considering a Slash of the following spec:

    * Starting with a VXL roller: Could also start with a full VXL and Ebay the electronics.

    * Pro-Line chassis: Its the nicest looking LCG chassis put there.

    * RPM gearbox case: Light, lots of adjustability and made by RPM! Seems perfect.

    * RPM rear bumper: I love these, so much better than the stock bumper which rides under the chassis. Seriously, why?!?!?!

    * Hot Racing sealed diff: Phenomenal part! Got to have one

    * Anza front and rear shock towers: Once again, these are phenomenal! Got to have'em.

    * Traxxas big bore shocks all around.

    * Losi springs.

    * Anza hinge pins.

    * Schumacher tyres (got no choice, control tyres for club I car I race at). Love their performance anyhow! Here in the UK they are the racer's choice.

    * The new Absima CRP3 radio system.

    * Tekin 8.5 sensored brushless in your fictional money no object world, in reality a Fusion Exceed brushless system.

    * Traxxas aluminum caster blocks.

    * Traxxas aluminum bearing carriers.

    * Hot Racing aluminum bulkhead.

    I think that's it, I am sure I've missed something somewhere

    PS: I did miss something, Alturn USA 982HTG servo

    Indoors on carpet we run mini pins, outdoors on grass we run mini spikes.

    What kind of surface do you race on?

    I love the scale look too If everyone was forced to run scale looking tyres I'd love it... But when there are people out there with mini pins, you have to run minipins
