If he would do the mgt and the t3 that would be a steal for you. I don't think you could buy either one for what it would cost to replace your 360.

i agree with the above^^
just as long as he is willing to run the nitro for you 1st. you need to make sure that it starts easy and runs good. as long as thats the case, its a good deal.

To add to that try then out for a full tank(or 5-10 mins would suffice) to make sure they don't shut down once they hit around 220F if they do chances are the pinch would be shot and they would require a rebuild. 1st used nitro I got that was the issue and I was wracking my brains trying to figure out what I was doing wrong.
If they run that long they are worth it.

I might be able to talk him into all 3 since he said he is getting out of the Hobby for good.

I havent been around in rc for awhile. How are the hopups and parts for these. wich one will be the hardest to get parts/hopups for. I know the stampede might be hard since he said its an older style but what about the others
