Re: WTB: nitro rc truck hpi or traxxas

To be perfectly honest I would never buy a used R/C car. You are just buying someone else's problems. I work at a hobby shop and have been racing professionally for 5 years. I have seen my fair share of: "I bought this thing of a guy for X amount of money, can you fix it now?" Unless you personally know the person or saw them run it every time you have no idea what it has gone threw or what little gremlins are hiding.

Wasn't trying to burst your bubble. Just buy new when buying an R/C car is all.

Oh I see. I would pretty much get fired for selling you stuff at my discount. Already had to let another guy go for it. :?

Re: WTB: nitro rc truck hpi or traxxas

I have 2 that I havent used in a few years that I am about to ebay if your interested. They both run great but I just can't seem to get the carb right on my 2.5 I give it gas and it bogs down and stalls. I havent taken it to a shop though to see what I am doing wrong. I have never raced them just backyard stuff. Let me know if your interested and I can dig them out get ya some pictures. If you are not that is cool too I'll just post them on ebay or maybe here first. I have no idea what to even charge. Just let me know and if nothing else Sokool can you help me find a good price to sell them for Ill get pics tonight / tommorrow.

I have a 2.5 Traxxas and another .16 with a megatech engine. the .16 is in pieces right now but runs great just needs put back together. The 2.5 runs awesome (@ idle) jsut havent got the needles set in the carb. right.

When you say bogs does it shoot out a bunch of smoke and die or sounds like its skipping then die?

BTW there are about 5 different Traxxas cars that have a 2.5 in them.
