I remember a Nitro with a boost bottle, but had NOS stickers on it and he advertised it has been a NOS equiped nitro.. 8-0
Got good $$ for it also from memory..

hmm 140k/hr eh, someone ask him what gear ratio his running, engine must be doing like 60,000RPM !!! engine must really be modified 8-) worth the asking price just for the engine alone!!

Wonder if he'll try to post the fuel, as well as the horrific spelling, to the winner?

I love that engines for sale have only ever seen 2 litres of fuel.

Or car kits are built, but only run once.

Ebay is the only place a GV can sell for $100 more than retail.

Cheers

Thumbs down

below is an example of what i hate...

Mugen mtx-3 (not kyosho, serpent, associated, team magic, yada yada...)

makes the search function useless... especially if your after a particular item or brand... you still have to search through all the crap you tryed to refine and cut out searching through anyway.

What a weapon, I think I might buy it. Should be a shoe in at the preworlds with such a high class race machine. Or maybe I will just get an Ari Filter for my car & see if there is a performance gain.

this actually falls into ebays definitions of keyword spamming, and you can report it. I have found that they really dont do much for individuals, but i have reported multiple items from stores and they end up removing them... they quickly learn when 10-20 items are removed from their stores

Did it keep the Corallys out of your engine. The Ebay car looks like one of yours Rock. Except yours does 140m/p/h with the Tecwell. Scale speed anyway. Maybe thats what he means
