Oh. I just looked around on-line, and I saw one (used) that sold for like $1150 USD in an auction. But I bet you can get more for it.

Check out www.mcdrc.com I payed 900.00 US for a EVO III roller no electronics or engine (used).

There is a big difference between the EVO II and III.

. Thanks. I was just wondering. I found a Evo 2 for $750 shipped that has a 26 zen engine in it that's potted and a jetpro pipe. Along with a bunch of spare parts. Thought it was a good deal.

That is a very good deal. There are EVO3 conversions that you can get as well. The EVO2's have the lower suspension arms mounted to the chassis. The EVO3's have the lower arms on hinge pins & also have the ability to adjust the suspension drop with set-screws in the arms that touch the chassis plate. In buying used be sure you know for sure what your getting. I've already talked to one guy this week that bought a used MCD & was told it was an EVO2. Turns out it's actually a Gen. 1 & converting to EVO models is way different due to length of arms & out drives. At the price your talking, you can't hardly go wrong.

I agree that you have to be careful. I would go to the kingcobra webb site to check the spec of the evo 2/ evo 3. Then just email the guy who selling it to confirm that you have bought the right car. Tell you the truth i just bought an evo 3 from ebay and i got a very good deal. If you have any problems you can send it back, just make sure you use paypal, i did!!
