Default 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?

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

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
