Default Does this sound like a good deal?

I am not exactly up to date on prices for 1/8th nitro stuff. I have a guy at work that has two jammin truggies. One is the pro one is the rtr. Both have good hitec servo's. The pro has a .21 os vspec. The rtr has the regular rtr engine. Also comes with startbox, charger, batteries for charger, extra parts , spectrum 3.0dx radio. He told me 600 for it all. What do you guys think? Sound like a good deal? Both truggies have not been started in about 1 year.

If the pro is RTR minus tw/rx. And the RTR is RTR

I'd say a "good" Deal

Is around 400ish, maybe lower on the pro.

And 250 on the RTR.

IF they both run.

so yes 600 for all sounds nice.

Thats just my opinion... i could be off. I just bought my Jammin Pro, with good hitec servos, BCE pro J chassis, and Go .21 5 port in the price range i stated. No TX/RX

The deal is 1 tx for both cars. Both cars do have a rx in them though. Neither of them have over 3 gallons of fuel through them.

Definitely a good deal for both cars. Although the RTR has some cheap parts to it. But, the arms, diffs, wing mount and other things can be used on the pro too so I'd say go for it.

Always buy brandnew kits. It will be more cost-effective in the long run.

I disagree

but there are a lot more variables to consider when buying a used vehicle/equipment.

Sounds like a good buy to me. buy it run it, make sure you like it, and if you do, sell them and buy a new top of the line one!

Really good deal..The Jammin might be a few models old but it's still a good truggy in the sportsman classes, and most of the suport gear is good stuff that you can use on other RC's..I would jump on it..
