Default ****JUST LEARNING NEED HELP*******

Im going to buy some things from a gentalmen from my area and would like some feed back on this rc stuff.. I am very new and know nothing about this stuff. some questions I have are: is it out dated, is it repairable and are the readly availible parts. I Also, would like to know the total value of all this gear tallied up please please please

Futaba candy - flex shaft driven, custom trim fins, paradox 27 single in it. (boat modified for surface drive with an octura strut, has a 4-5 foot rooster tail which looks sweet)

RC12LC modified to 12L3 with tons of ups, 3 bodies

RC10B3 all graphite and titanium (blue titanium turnbuckles, blue anoed screws....the works. you gotta see the tires expand with a Phantom 14 triple, included of course)

Tamiya Dirt Thrasher, ready to run with its own old futaba radio, extra clear body unpainted.

Tamiya F1, only used twice to race at RC Champ in scarborough, with ups of course, with a porshe lemans gt2 body custom painted by me, i'll send you pics if interested. (white to metallic blue using flourecent yellow-green flames to seperate the fade, has to be seen to be appreciated.

JR Propo Mars Radio (all orange grips died to a dark purple to match the radio)
3 extra crystals (76. something, 26. something and 27.195)

motor case with 4-6 extra motors (all vehicles have a motor in them already) cant remember the number off hand. Motors include, the phantom 14 triple hand wound, onyx 19 double, 2 reedy firehawks, a few tamiya ones that came with the cars, one of which is really good, especially for stock racing classes, its never been used, paradox 27 single, a 32 single, and a 17 double. more if i can find them.

Bunch of 4 cell packs for the 12lc, and a few 6 cell for the rest.

Theres lots more, of course you get all the spare parts, parts kits, tire compounds and stuff. oh ya, atleast 6 sets of different tires for the B3, 2 brand new as well. and marked on the insides of the rims to identify them.


Thanks so much for helping a future racer out and hope to get a great deal and see you all very soon..

Thank you again for taking the time

Ven, not saying that is a good or bad deal, but I would just start off new. You can get into on road or offroad with a ready to run kit for a very reasonable price these days. Stick with either Losi or Associated for now as your main concern being new to the hobby would be parts availablity and customer service. Every person here has a different opinion so it will be up to you do your home work. Keep in mind that No Ready to Run kit will be "top of the line", but with practice they are all more than capable of winning.

Thank you for the reply.

This is acually a part of a trade for all my paintball gear worth $1300
and I wanted to know if this stuff is worth that or if its lopsided. my main concern is that we both get a great deal and I can make something of this..

I need to know what, or if any of this stuff is worth while, and if any of you would use any of it. I tend to get very cometitive and get to the top of the line quick. Problem is I dont know where that is. Im doing a ton of research and am learning alot but cant know everything this is why Im turning to you all. I believe in buying great and not having to buy again later.

thank you again..

Please post your answers.......
Ven

My opinion it is extremely lopsided. I would put your paint ball stuff on ebay and see if you can just get your money back that way. If your going to try to be competetive, it won't be with any of that stuff.

Like Bob said, that's a pretty lopsided deal. There honestly isn't anything in that list that's current or up to competition level. If you can get $1000 for your paintball gear by selling it, you can get yourself started in either on or off road with all new gear.
