    I got this for free. I bet I can fix it up for about $50, then sell it for $400-$300.

    Yeah but only if he doesn't have enough cash to buy it or doesn't want it lol. Here I don't come across much deals like only maybe 3 times a year when I am out of cash on hand.

    Nice nice you find good deals every once in a while,I see good deals like this at least three times a month,that's why I posted this thread just to show we don't have to blow a large amt of cash on rc,but when you see a deal got to jump on it quick

    I will never forget I bought a pede brushed water proof rtr with batteries and a peak charger for 30 the guy had night it for his son and after a couple of months of light use he said it stoped working, all that was wrong was that his son had moved the trim on the control so the esc wouldn't move,I adjusted the trim and good to go

    i almost bought a 2wd pede with a vxl motor and esc, virtually new- for either 50 or 100 bucks (dont remember)... only problem is sense that i live in a state with such a small population, craigslist has it set to all of wyoming and you cant search specific counties and what not- i would have bought the pede but it was across the state
