$73 + shipping.

Not bad, considering that's a $100 box, and a $25 battery.

What performance boost would a lipo like [link=http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_info.php/products_id/16869]this[/link] give me over the gel cell it's coming with, besides weight?

Would it last longer on a single charge?

He only used it for half of a season, and the pics look nice, he's got pics of everything in the auction.

[link=http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEBTOX:IT&item=170185218532&_trksid=p3984.cTODAY.m238.lVI]Here's[/link] the finished auction.

He also accepts returns, which is pretty much a quality guarantee. A lot of people on eBay don't do that.

oh extremely good buy.

I think the PTK battery MIGHT last longer.

Not too sure tho, I know nothing about batteries.

Theyre good deals on ebay.

I have a lil' money with me.

Browsing ebay and looking for stuff to buy lol.

<___< Well....$350 for the roller...$525 for various objects...$100 for bumpstart/backplate/charger?

xD

And as soon as I get that bump start, I plan on breaking in the engine, and I just found out there's a track not far from here, so I'll probably start running there.

How could you not know there was a track close to your house lol :P.

I hate breaking in my engine on a track [:'(]. I normally do it in the yard of in front of the house.

Well, I sent the payment last night, and he replied with a message saying he'd ship it today, so maybe Tuesday or Wednesday.

And I'm not breaking it in on a track. Lmao. I could never do that, I'll definitely be doing it in my yard.

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention the $100 I spent on clutches and crap.

The track is in another town, a little away from here, like 20 minutes, but I never go there, so I wouldn't know anything about that town. Lmao.

lol @ the cash..

I still cant drive, the track is inaccessible. It had rained for the past 3 days and all the sand has become like quick sand. Went to check it out in the morning, just turned around and came back home..

Soo depressing, my Nitrage is back on its stand [&o]

Haha.

My friend thinks CRT's are crap and thinks all of the talk about it is just because it's my new truggy, and I'm excited to be driving it.

He wants to race his crapper RS4 against my CRT.

Lol.

I bought the Werks 4-shoe clutch for mine. I don't want to have to replace it, and I've heard the shoes last FOREVER on it.

And they're cheap. Only $16 for a set.

Lmao. I wouldn't doubt it. He claims to have put over $3000 in it, and says it runs "300 MPH."

The first time I heard that, I was laughing my ***** off.

LOL 300! MPH.

Id be suprised if it'd hit 30.

I can see how well he takes care of it, zip ties to hold the batteries in and a dirty air filter lol.

And my mom could do a better job of the wiring lol.

I cant even imagine on what he spent 3K on.

RUN OVER IT
