Default Good Deal or Not??

SC10 Race remote control car in good shape (only run 3 times) - "brushless motor" This a very fast remote control car (too fast which is why I'm selling it - not skilled enough to control it-does wheelies when trigger is pulled). Comes with a lipo 3 cell battery "speedpack" and a speed charger "common sense RC ACDC-6...6S Balancing Charger" (will charge all types of remote control batteries)


To be used for racing and this would be my first truck purchase...anything i should look at specifically when buying a used truck??

no fellow racers havent answered

well look at everything i have been screwed many times in the last month by fellow rcers

1 MAKE HIM/HER SHOW YOU IT RUNS
2 i dont think 3 cell is allowed in offroad even mod so you might be wasting money on the battery
3 look at the bottom of the truck see any rashes if alot..... it has been used alot

4 MAKE SURE HE/SHE SHOW YOU IT RUNS

It's a SC10RS it sounds like

They are 299 new. You can't use the 3 cell for 1/10th racing here.
You would be better off just buying a new one. and just getting a correct battery

It is not a good buy. Look around for a better deal, they are out there. New ones retail for 300. You would still have to buy a battery and charger.

Only 275, hell no. Don't pay over $200. Especially since I'm sure the motor is about shot. He was running a 3 cell and probably never checked the temp on that thing.
