that is a pretty good deal as long as it is in good shape. Already has all the good parts you will need.

my best friend and racing buddy here has a XXXT MF that he is about to sell. Perfect condition, used but perfect. He is more particular about keeping his stuff in new condition than I am. He is going to be asking $150-175, depending on if he leaves motor in it. So $100 is a great deal if it is in good shape.

From my experience I have not really fouund the graphite to be that much stronger than the stiffezel, but it is definitely lighter.

Yeah, I'm a weight fanatic! My friend got his T3 before me and mine is the faster one and WAY lighter.... basically because I went and got graphite arms, rear tower and the carbon fiber front tower... HAULS!

I'm looking forward to doing this to a XXXT

I have found the same, Graphite will snap, it is more brittel, Stiffezel will flex a little and absorb the impact.
Graphies is lighter.

I just hated having to load EVERYTHING up and going some where just to test. Cars I could work on themand at least try them in the back yard. Maybe not race, but at least test.
