Default Good deal or not

Hello buddy of mine is wanting to sell me his Well used Savage for $250.00 it comes with the DX3 with both servos included, upgrades and lots of extra parts Mach28 is on it right now and he has about 3 or 4 other used engines that just need rebuilt to throw in with it. The truck is pretty beat up needs new clutches and a glow starter. But is this a good deal or not?

i dont think so, you can get a new one for 360 but you dont get the dx3 radio though. if its really beat like you said it may need more work than just clutch shoes

The DX3 system is about that price new on ebay so you can think of it as you got the trunk for free clean it up put a few new parts in it and it's good to go, looking on ebay thats close to the going price on the savage trucks without the dx system, what ever you do best of luck and remember to always have fun Rc'in.

Thing is he really is giving me a break he's put alot of new stuff on the truck he's got a rollcage which i would never use but, he just broke the engine in this past summer so i'll be good on that motor for another summer. So i think im going to go ahead and get it.

look at it like this, what could you sell it for the day after you buy it?

The DX3 radio and receiver are worth more on ebay split up. Right now people are paying nutz prices for them. You could get around $125 or so for the pair one avg.

that puts you at $125 in the roller/engine/servos. Mach 28 wasnt real popular, depending on condition, figure $50 on avg.

Im guessing your servos are Z590 and Z270, neither is good enough for MT figure $20-$25 for the pair on avg on ebay. If the roller itself is in good condition figure $125-$150 on ebay. This is probably the hardest part too. Ive sold really really nice Savage rollers with all the good stuff and brought less than $200.

Is $250 a good deal, yeah, not bad.
