Help me out, folks. Am I pricing this too high? Been out of the hobby for some time, so maybe I'm making assumptions on the worth of all of this that is wrong. I have an MBX5T, Miss Bud boat and a bunch of other stuff I plan on posting, but if I'm missing on the pricing, it won't move. Any advice appreciated!

I think it is because the MBX5 and MBX5T are older models..
I was trying to sell my MBX5T ProSpec but no interest in it at all.

I'll throw a thought or 2 in... Personally, I just have too many projects and a financial burden sitting in my driveway already... No free cash.
Anyways, nitro is a somewhat soft market in that we are a nitch group. It's love/hate. When I see the Mugen name, I see it as a competitive name, a racing name. While I have no doubt that it is a quality kit and would serve a basher well, it is already outdated on the track. In much the same way a high performance motorcycle or the newest and greatest computer... It is outdated before it even hits the market so to speak. It's just the nature of the beast. I would encourage ebaying it as well. You will likely find someone who is in love with that kit or simply finds it a great deal and can't pass it up.
I have found the same in the rc10gt that I have. I have mentioned that I intend on doing a rectification on it and thru those few posts, have had a number of offers on the kit... It's a walk down memory lane for some, for others, a chance to own a kit that they regret not having purchased when they were avail new.
Just my thoughts. Not at all meant to discourage.
EBay my friend!;)

I also have too many projects or i would snag it. The M7 has features that only a semi pro driver would notice. Mugen is a beast. I have a mbx5 truggy. Nakes my savage look like its made of glass. That buggy would be a hell of a basher. Nova powered too. Somebody needs to get it. Goid luck with the sale.
