Default My NH or the Miss LLumar???

Ok, so I have a nitro hammer, but I think I have fallen in love with the Miss LLumar[] This boat is better then the Bud because of some of the small detailed things they changed. I want to know if I should sell my NH and get a ML? How much could I get for my NH?

I saw a few Nitro Hammers on e-bay for $125 to $180. Me, I'd keep the NH and save up for the Miss L too. You'll be able to use the Hammer more than th hydro cause it's better on rough water.

I figure I could get 180 at least because of all the mods I did, Like the surface drive. But My price is probably more then someone wants to pay

That's always been the problem with modding any engine or vehicle. Most people think it's real cool to hop up, pimp out, customize, modify and improve a vehicle right up till it comes time to buy one that's been done. Then, all of a sudden, the vehicle's not even worth what a stock one is because it's been "tampered with". Usually, you cannot even sell a modded vehicle to some who does mods themselves. They want to do it themselves and don't trust work done by someone else. It's never cheap to do mods on any vehicle and you can very seldom get what you've spent. Notice I did not say "what you've got invested". An investment is to make you money and there are very few who can make money on a modified vehicle.
That's why I said that I'd just keep the boat you have and start saving for the next one. The Hammer is a pretty simple and fun boat and it will be nice to have around even if you get the Miss L.

Hey, I actually decided to keep my hammer for a little longer because my dad wants to run it. But if I get ready to sell it I'll let you know first.
