Bro.. they are all toy cars..

Buy a MTX4R second hand and ensure there's lots of parts. Anywhere between 120-$200 AUD max (including clutches and parts). Then spend your money of on a good reliable NEW engine, a second hand spektrum radio etc, starter box and alike. If you cant get all this under 400-450 AUD used consider this excluding the engine go for it.

OR..

You seem keen, and I'm looking for an enthusiast to hand over a great RACE SPEC starters car and KIT TO KEEP YOU RACING. Why? Ive got too many cars and need to consolidate and step up with engines. With what i'm handing over, I'll be buying ONE engine!

Team magic G4+ Evo WC SPEC ZF - RED Race bearings, CF and 7075 alu EXCELLENT Condition $450-475 depending on shipping to NZ.

NOW.. PPL will booo - tell em to mind their own business or MATCH THE PRICE!!! Ensure they don't miss anything to get you racing!!!

Included:

DX2 Spektrum Radio + receiver
ACERC Servos
LiPo battery + Charger
TWO Clutches and new spare shoes
TWO - GRP Engines manifolds and pipes (one brand new - just run in ) and one still great condition with spare conrod and bearing.. plugs etc.
Two body shells in great condition
An old starter box and 12v battery ( Had better days but will get you going )
Hex drivers and clutch tools and other spare tools I have, it'll save you from further expenses.

And assortment of parts you need to race:
Springs
Arms
Spurs
diffs
shock towers
Belts
bearings
servo horns..

Ill throw in a set of tyres as well, just so u dont get bummed out.
I wont go on with spares, theres too many parts here to mention. Also throw in an older spec car with chassis u can mix and match. I cant tell you how much I spent on this, it's well over $3000, don't tell my wife.

This isnt a car you can play on the street with though. it's a serious piece of kit. NZ RC buddies know me, I dont trash cars and this isnt a rip off, it's at this price because I want to help ppl entering the sport save the initial $$$ while they are learning and have a great time doing it. The wannabes just want to brag about their car being faster and don't want to tell you how much they spend. The MTX4R is a better car for a starter, it's more robust but when you add up the total expense of all that's needed to get into racing, you'll be @ $1000 plus in a month...

Genuine $450-475 delivered. No offers!

This is the car, it's not that engine or radio.

Check out the the rest of my site, you can find more about it. If you're serious, can take pictures of ALL I'll hand over, it'll probably cover the whole floor of this bedroom.

See here..

http://www.rctech.net/forum/5495346-post274.html

Ive said what I have to, and I stand by the fact that if someone can offer you a complete race kit in MTX4R form for $500 take it. Otherwise this is a great entry point that will save you thousands. Just the engines alone are worth over $500.

PS: Ive never sold any of my models...

Ok buddy.. where are you gonna race it though?

Need to get everything together for ya.. how you want me to ship it is how much I'll add, some of it like a 12v battery for the starter box may set me back a lot in air freight.

You will need a glow starter a Fuel & bottle,
a starter box as this one is past it's use by date
some tyres for the future
a notebook computer 5a power supply or 12v supply for the charger
few of your own tools like long nose and perhaps a flywheel puller and you can be racing week in week out.

Onlineg.....

That's an excellent way to get serious about racing.
Hopefully you can find someone like 'blis' at your local track
to mentor you. This is the VW to Ferarri step....enjoy. Avoid the
urge to trash it in a parking lot!!!

No problem mate, i will use this for track racing, i have a local track at north harbour stadium.

As for the 12v im in the security industry so ive got heaps of 12v batteries.

Shipping with insurance would be great

Maybe you could flick me an email [email protected]

Also, im guessing the cars not quite in the condition of the photos you showed (that was brand new right) maybe you can just flick me a photo of the actual car

Give me a email

Thanks mate!

The car is in near perfect condition as in the picture..

Just very busy here and as mentioned I'll get my son to begin laying out all the equipment you need and take a picture to curb your anxiety.

I really hope he takes a moment to consider your advice seriously as it's the next best thing he can do.

It's the first model Ive ever sold and Ive tried to do everything to get him ready. even threw in fuel line and shock/diff oils. He chose to drop the new GRP and I threw in an old RB both with clutches and a spare.

Hoping he spends a good week sorting, cleaning, learning and getting to know the car. Included a spares G4 07 parts car, charger + connectors. All he needs now are tools, patience and lots of good answers to a plethra of questions.

$350AUD Inc delivery.
