Normal price for a set of Motoworx 1.9's is $75 for the set 1.9rcwheels.
The wheels I run are no longer produced, but Jake was nice enough to make me a few sets of them to my specs.
I HIGHLY recommend his wheels. They are offset an extra 2mm each to make your track width 4mm wider. When I went to Motoworx wheels, I was able to do away with the Junfac wideners, making it much easier to get through gates. With your servo/battery mount, I think you would still need the wideners, but the extra width would help you clear it on tight turns. Motoworx wheels are also the easiest to install tires on that I have used. I can honestly say that even if I weren't sponsored, I would still run Jake's wheels!

Have you tried LH Procomps? Which ones of the Motoworx wheels would you recommend? Do they come with the Motoworx engraving on them too

Yes, I've had a set of LH's. All the Motoworx MRC wheels are made the same as far as I know, so it just comes down to which ones you prefer the looks of. They do come with the Motoworx engraved rings (at least mine do).

Well, Austin shamed me into getting some new body panels made. It was definitely high time I did so, and since I'm now a BWD team driver, it was only right that I put some decal bling on to represent.
Nothing too fancy, but I think it's a step up from the old panels. I'll try to get some proper shots on the rocks posted up soon.
I hope you approve, Austin!

As promised, some "proper" shots on the rocks. Not an actual comp, just some practice time in my garage. Sorry if I'm overdoing it on the pictures, I just wanted to post a few while it's still purty.

You got a pic of your whole course in your garage? BTW have you made that one climb yet?

I do, but they're old ones when it was smaller. I'll grab a couple shots real quick. And yes, the climb has been conquered!

Here you go, they aren't very good pics, but you can get the general idea. It's roughly 10' x 20' x 4' high in the corner. The side comes out about 3' from the wall and the front about 6'. My wife can still (barely) get her Trailblazer in the garage; she has politely let me know that the course is big enough now. Actually, I figure I'm pretty lucky that she let me take it this far!
The 3rd picture shows some wooden bridges I made to change it up a bit. The round concrete pieces can be moved around also or placed in the rocks.
The last picture shows one of the wooden things that are hanging on the wall in the 1st picture. I made these from scrap lumber and they are a ton of fun to set gates on. They can be placed together like in the picture, or spread apart.
It started out just as a place to test-n-tune, but has grown until it's large enough that our club holds a winter 1.9 series of 4 comps in it. I have a propane heater that I use to make it nice and toasty. It gets us through the bad weather till we can get back outside.

I'm going to need to modify my course that is in my attic I'll see if I can get it down and have a corner of the garage for it but not a very good chance of that :P. I'm wanting to make a little building that I can set up a workshop in and set up a course in too so we will see if I end up doing that or not.....
