the $1100 one quote
i have for sale a brand new, never used, except testing on carpet, slash 4x4 ultimate. this this is fully upgraded with every single option part i could find locally.
Brand new, never used except drove on a carpet... IMO that makes it used, and not new

HAHA
i have a brand new tx and rx for it, its current installed, however i am not including in the sale. its an airtronics mx px? im not sure on that. if some one is serious we can talk about the rx and tx.
Hate to ask if its not included why he even mentions it

its insane how often i see a "used" redcat on ebay for MORE then they cost new!
I dont know if the owners are out of their minds, or if they bought the models from dealers who way over charged and so the owner thinks they are selling it for less than a new one.

Rock crawlers are a big offender. just cause it has a custom body and some scale accesories doesnt make it worth $100 more than a brand new on!!!!
seriously, how often do you see a ax10 or scx 10 for $300+? they are $240ish new. even with a decent brushless upgrade they arent worth more than a brand new one.

"The Batzloff motor is super rare in and of itself. But to find one in a Richter is the “holly grail” of tether car collecting. "

Whats a holly grail? is that something like at Christmas?

I've been laughing at this one for awhile. It doesn't work but its still $300

http://nmi.craigslist.org/for/2341140394.html


And every RC in this lot needs work, yet its still almost $400

http://nmi.craigslist.org/tag/2395617190.html

And I know that this is the car forum , but the 2 helis that this guy is selling (Nexus 30 and Shuttle X) are both 20+ years old and parts are no longer available. They also have a combined worth of $150-400 depending on use and condition. Notice, he's asking $1000.

Time to sell my Traxxas Rustler VXL w/ lots and lots of goodies. Can easily go 70+mph I easily have over $1200 into this and am asking $600 obo for everything including the charger and new battery


IMO, there is no goody or extra that makes a Rustler worth $600.

that actually doesn't look that bad for the price if you look in the pic there are 2 ground based RC's a rustler, and something that looks like a buggy(if both are included).
Helicopters are expensive not very up on them but even the exceeds are almost $200 new, and boats I'm not very apt for but they can be quite costly too from what I seen

As sad as it is, I don't even bother looking in RCuniverse's classifieds anymore. For each ad that is priced appropriately, with decent pictures and a good description, there's 10 that are way over inflated, poorly described or you just know there are problems with it.

Dude, that car is acutaly worth every penny of the $45k considering he only made 5 and it's hand made, no factory junk here. Those old tether cars are realy valuable to the collectors.
Saw another of his hand made cars go for $40K at an auction a couple years back.(that was without a motor)
Also if you read the whole listing you would have seen that the $450 includes full price insurance, that takes up well over $400 to insure something worth that much.
Awesome deal if you have that kind of cash.

Got agree with you on that Ferrari deal.

I shipped it back to redcat racing for them to inspect the rc car and make sure everything is good before selling.
The radio is still in the foam bag and is brand new.
Brand new body.
It comes with car, charger, 2 batteries, controller, body, and 4 spare axles.
This rc car is 1/8 scale 4 wheel drive and it goes up to 80km/h with the stuff i have for it.

wonder how he used it without using the radio
Would say used his own radio, but seeing he's a novice he wouldn't have one of those

Gotta laugh.

If I had $45k to blow, I sure wouldn't spend it on some junky collectible. Nope, I'd buy me one of them new Boss 302's.
