Default Nitro Newb need help on first buy please

I have always had an interest in Nitro RC I have a few electric but recently decided to buy a Nitro set up. I found one that had been posted on Facebook for cheap a few hours ago and I'd like some advice. What should I be asking, what to look for etc so I don't get screwed. ...

You need to be more specific with what you want. And maybe give a link to the product you saw.
I did see you also asked this question in the offroad section.

But do you have any wishes?
- on or offroad
- kind of model
- budget

Buying a used nitro is a gamble. If the engines is well used it can get expensive to repair. If you can see it run before you buy that would be best. If you do buy nitro; fuel is expensive if you buy by quarts. Best if you buy gallon size. Make sure there is a fuel filter: either in tank or inline. Save money Use only rechargeable batteries.

Depends what kind of terrain you run in. On road off road? That’s the first information we need, you could buy used but doing that as a first rc will surly piss you off, so probably go with something newer
