He did ask a question.

I've been busy racing my Mugen.

RRR is still doing really well. Robert TQ'd recently with his Red Dot and finished 2nd - which is just totally awesome for Robert, the Evo WCE and the engine. Evo WCE is also kicking butt at our track - which is a total surprise, but Justin kicks butt with just about anything. Nice to see the RRR taking the A Main.

We'll see how the NT1 does in the hands or mere mortals. I've been trying to figure out if the car is any better than the others. I'm still working on it.

I think the problem is that there are so many rrr threads its hard to keep track of all of them....also the newest car is the RRR Evo Wce...so as people convert youll see less on the regular rrr thread....

hope this helps.

If your car is already built, you might as well take it out for a spin. A used RRR is just a like a real car - once it leaves the box, it starts losing value.

What RRR you got?

You know just as well as I do, that if someone bought a NIB RRR for $400, built it, never ran it and put it up for sale, that person could not get $400 for it. Perhaps you thought I meant something else...

Are we talking about the 1st version or the current version? If, we're talking about the current version, then I see no reason why someone couldn't sell the car for same price they paid for it. Furthermore, doesn't this hold true for every other "top of the line" car out there?

I'm still monitoring the thread & the other one as well since I just bought the EVO WCE but still in the box (unassembled).

Still gathering all the parts needed to build the car. Still need to get an engine (OS?), extra tools needed (tools currently have are for electric TC), Rx pack, body & the rest I can't remember.

If I do need help, will post & also refer to the link RMDHawaii recommended to me awhile back on one of my posts.

Looking at next month when I will be building my kit. Later

What RRR you got?

I've got the WC Team Edition. I think I will get close to what I paid if I keep it new. Like a pre-built kit.

I doubt it.

For us in the southeast, our racing season is just about over and in the north it's just getting started so I think there is a little break in the action.
