Default Need some advice

Have a chance to purchase an EB Mods Vspec .21 that has between 2 and 3 gallons of fuel on it. Is this worth purchasing? My other option is buying a new Novarossi n21b. Thanks in advance.

Personally Buy the Nova-As Its new.. I think most people will agree with me here never buy used. Unless you know that person, And how well they looked after it.. and actually how many tanks have been through it.. My view

Used vspec?
Maybe for fifty bux.
Then chuck it in the woods the first time it gives ya trouble.
Hopefully it's not the first time ya run it!!!

New is always better unless you know the person like said above but new is STILL better if you can afford it.

But I'd advise against a 3 gallon modded vspec.

Remember this,..... there's usually one reason guys sell their engines. Because it's time for a new one!!!

I know the 2000 Limited Edition has the better carb on it; other than that I'm not sure.
