I've had my Revo for maybe a year or so and it's been great to me, no doubt about it. My friend may sell his MBX5T Prospec so if that goes through, I'll be selling my Revo for the truggy.

R/C trucks are worse than 1:1... they lose their value EXTREMELY quick. I probably won't sell mine... I have no reason to... even if they are just sitting collecting dust... I'll keep 'em.

My trucks eventually end up broken down into pieces... and they reach a point that I don't even know what's what, and thigns just go out in a great purging of stuff.

I've had my original .21 powered Monster GT since April '04 and see no reason to get rid of it. For my driving style, the thing is bulletproof.

I have over 20, some our 2 to 3 years old and brand spankin new. I have an original mgt with the .21 never even put the wheels on it, and it still sits in the box. I have a new black and gold sut truggy still in the box, a new ofna dominator, a new xfactor, a new giga crusher, and a new 9.5 mbx buggy, a new fusion, etc. If wouldn't totally lose my ass Id sell some of them, but im holding on on till i get half decent offers. Oh forgot about the cen genesis, and many others[]
