    PE getting overpriced

    I thought about looking on the chicagoland craigslist to see what I could find on there for part's or maybe even a 4x2 Slash Roller. I found a Venom 2s 25c 5400mah battery for $50obo, emailed him about it. While searching I found a guy selling a PE Slash 4x4 for $650!! I know the PE's are hard to find but to sell something for $200-$240 over retail price is a bit over the top!

    The link:

    Hmmm... any smart person would get the Ultimate at that price, of course. But still, it's smart for him to be selling it at that price.
    PLEASE do not PM me and immediately go offline :p

    I really can't blame him for trying to take advantage of the situation with the really low supply of PE's. I don't know if I'd be as greedy as $650 though, maybe $50-75 over the cost at most.

    Caveat Emptor ! If someone isnt savvy enough to shop around before purchasing something and they get burned its their own fault not the sellers IMO . Unless the item in question isnt advertised correctly , that would be dishonest IMO ....
    At WARN 80% and climbing !
