Default Anyone else hate this?

http://cgi.ebay.com/TEAM-LOSI-XXXT-C...QQcmdZViewItem

Came across this on Ebay. He has it listed as a CR version. Look at the hubs, they are not the quick change and the rear shocks are different. I asked about the hubs and he said oh parts were changed over time. WTF who changes back to the ols style hubs?

Just sucks for the average person who would buy this thinking they are getting a xxx-t cr when in reality is looks like a pieced together car.

It looks like a XXX-T ready to run. The blue rear shocks,prepainted body and old school front wheels with the dust shields. Got some good parts but "Buyer Beware" is stamped all over.

You should see his spelling in my messages on Ebay. Huge flag for me right there. Im not an English professor but this dude cannot spell. I tild him I was interested in a xxx-t cr not some pieced together truck. He said it sounds like im the type of guy who should buy a new kit so I know exactly what I am getting


WTF!! Eff you fuknutz is what I told him. It's his job as a Ebay seller to give accurate information about the products he is selling. He is the typical "I didn't know guy"

Same thing happens to me. Bought a TA05 'R' for my son.

The pictures were taken in a way that was hard to tell, looked ok, but when I got it, missing a lot of the 'R' hop ups.

Lucky I only paid $78, so was still cheaper than other non 'R' going at the time.

Yeah I hear ya. I know the saying buyer beware. That's easy for people who know what to look for. But so far it looks like 9 people think they are getting a steal on a XXX-T CR

Good call on the OG dust cover's on the front rims. Must be for the special edition peiced together ebay limited edition pile of crap LOL

RTR shocks and tranny. Graphite front and EA3 chassis/rear.

I wouldn't say it was a bad truck, but it's definitely pieced together or at least piece upgraded RTR at best.

I would say it's a $65-75 truck at best without the remote

Well at least with the other ones, he is calling them a MFI or MFII neither of those had the quick change hubs. That's one of the reasons I can't fully decide to upgrade to a T4 or CR. I have 13 sets of rims and tires and alot of spares. But I really like the T4

This guy obviously just pieces togethers trucks cleans them up and put's so so electrics in them and noobs jump all over a pieced together truck.

I just hate that crap, if you are gonna sell items know what they are or put you have no clue what it is and that it's up to the buyers to ask questions

Gotta love ebay for stuff like that. Buyer Beware...sometimes you can find deals with morons not knowing what they have, and others you have to watch out for what they are selling.

Can you safely call them XXX-T CF editions?

I won't elaborate on the CF acronym ...
