I'll sell you a Losi GTX with many hop ups, MIP clutch, Mip pipe, Ofna factory modified engine, Futaba Magnum Junior Tekin micro reciever, starter, glow ignitor, and a ton of spare parts for three hundred. It is a fun and exciting hobby, I just don't have the time for it anymore, with school and My 82 toy, for some reason I just keep spending more time with it. The problem is that it is not the greatest beginners rig with a two needle carb and seperate Idle, it takes a little time to learn how to tune these engines. I am personally partial to 1/10 scale stadium trucks and would recomend the Associated RC10gt RTR for a beginner who doesn't have much experience,yet wants a truck they can still compete with.
If you wantmore info oon my truck, or any help at all just drop me a line at [email protected]
$500 sounds about right for getting into the hobby unless you can find a good deal used. Good luck.
Quit Honking, I'm reloading!
