I agree. When you buy used, you buy someone else's problems. Just like 1/1 cars. It will cost me $700 or so. But it will be brand new.You can always buy used cars and repair, clean / flip them.
But the thing I wonder, is it better to buy used and flip them (repair, clean)
Or is it better to just buy new?
For new: you have 1 price.
For used, you have a lower price, but if it needs cleaning, repairing, rebuild, it can cost just as much or more as a new one.
I watch Ryan Harris on YouTube. I believe he bought a used older TLR 2wd buggy. He had to clean, rebuild, replace some parts. I can't remember what he said but I think it costed more money to put into the used car than a new one.
(The car was discontinued BTW)
Will post a photo for sure. Won't arrive till Thursday. Tower Hobbies is having a fathers day sale. $100 off. I could not resist. How have you been? I am not feeling the mojo on the Traxxas site. I plan on mothballing my Hoss, Rusty, and Bandit.Nice! I'm ready to see it!
