WTB: Electric 1/10th scale setup
« on: August 15, 2005, 03:33:28 AM »
I'm looking for either

a) a complete set up

b) a roller chasis.  I can probably dig up a radio/receiver/ESC/motor/battery

I have a friend who wants to race so he keeps buying raffel tickets - I'd like to see him out on the track.  I think the $600+ starting price tag of a new electric system is scaring him off a bit but if I can get a cheap starter system or a cheap roller I can probably convince him to come out.  He's been out to three races already - if he keeps holding out for the raffel I doubt we'll see him racing this year :(

Hey grinder your friend can borrow my car right now if he wants to. He, or you just has to pick it up and get the little screw it is missing.
     I just recently got an ims4 mini stock race car and geez, RC looks cheap right now but something has to give. I would really love to see my car out there racing than sitting on my shelf collecting dust because a race car is a race car, 1/10th scale or 1/1 scale.
My first race in the full size race car was a a week and 2 days ago, and I went out on the first practice session and broke! we got the car together barely in time for qualifying and it was micky moused and definatly not 100% but I went out dead last and ran a 20.05 time and qualified 14th out of 18 cars. The car held up and after a 40 lap main event I finished 10th out of 18 and was the fastest rookie.
I Am the youngest driver by 3 years and we beleive the youngest driver at western speedway ever.
sorry I rambled on but I am pretty excited.

Robert,
I don't need to borrow a 1/10 scale but howabout a rip in your 1/1 on the track for an fellow IROCC member, because you know if your car isn't out running we would all hate to see it sitting somewhere collecting dust...LOL

Thats WAY more than I'm looking to spend.  The last used car set up was Rob's TC3 for $200 (which included everything except the charger - including tires, motor and battery as well) - that more in my price range.  Since your buddy has a new car but missing the $80 tires, $50 motor, $100 battery I'd probably offer him $150 but it sounds like he still wants way more than that.  I'm sure most people's advice would be to flog it - this is turning into club X-Ray and the bottom is falling out of the TC3/4 market....  best of luck though with that car.  I was over at RC Pit Stop and they had a used X-Ray for $250 - all carbon fiber which makes the old school plastic cars look kinda cheap and junky....

Robert:  I'll definately take you up on your offer though - I'll be sure to keep the car in at least as good a condition as it leaves your hands..... are you sure you can't make it out to any more races this summer?

ya I am pretty sure I won't be able to make any more this year. depending on how this mini stock deal goes I might sell my car by the end of this year, but for right now I am still sitting on it.

Well to each his own I suppose.  Of course you are gonna have to spend another $250 (battery, tires, motor) to get the parts to get this one going.  Sure its new but its also a RTR which means its the most basic model with the cheapest parts - doesn't have any of the hop ups that come with a kit.  $600 could be more wisely spent by someone starting off I think.
