people who want cheap stuff.
 
a few days ago some one was looking for some parts **CHEAP** i sent a PM with a great deal i think. his response was OMG i can get it cheaper from ebay and my frined down the street has 2 for sale cheaper than your asking.

never fails you try to help some one out with a great deal and that person replies with a rude comment smart Answer!!! so when ever i see threads looking for rollers,motors,complete rc for **CHEAP** i stay away from them.


any one else had this happen to them?

hold out some one will buy it. i had a set of foams and nitro tc3 factory team parts on ebay for 90 days, i got emails saying price was way to high or thet parts not worth it. and (FINALLY) they sold.

i admitt i lowball every now and then, normally people need money more than i need car parts and will sell it for what i offer, but i see what your saying, i have donated tons of stuff on here and never get a good deal in return (EVER) so i have stoped giving things away. i even pay shipping and no favors in return! but for a new MMP 115.00 shipped is a good deal, but i would offer atleast 95.00...LOL

Ahh its just the cycle of trading, Times are tough and people are really buying used over new now just to save some bucks, Every now and then you can find someone selling out and nab a good package deal but hey I dont mind people lowballing me if they dont mind me throwing back at them every now and then, Just be polite and keep on trucking lol

+1..... Your dealing with all types of people on here. Got to remember that people are trying to save a few bucks now and only play with r/c to get "away" from life every once in awhile....

Just remember it don't hurt to ask. When u go to a car dealership u never pay what's on the sticker. Right! And plus u never know when someone is hurting for money. I'm always trying to save a buck. All u have to do is say no and walk away. Good luck with everything

Its my hobby that I enjoy and enjoy hanging out with guys on here with the same intrests, 20 years ago when I got into this you had to basically buy new there was no hop on ebay or the forums and look for parts or SELL my junk easy, I used to sell stuff so I could buy parts or new kits but now I sell just to get crap out of the way lol , You cant please them all, sometimes you just gotta hit delete ;)
