If your item hasn't sold in 6 months maybe theres a reason. I have seen a few items that have been on for over six months. The seller bumps the thread every day creating 8 pages that just say bump. Yet they have never lowered the price.

never say "its almost new" sorry to break it to them but if you opened it and installed it ran it once sorry but its used, one mans version of "almost new" its worn out to someone else.

I agree that adding certain aluminum parts do nothing for your vehicle. I could never understand why someone would spend extra money for aluminum skid plates or money on aluminum A-ARMS when the factory plastic parts work fine or maybe go with a replacement product from RPM.

My take on adding aluminum parts is replace the factory items with aluminum parts that will structurally make the vehicle stronger. A-ARMS, Shock towers and skid plates are all fine for that wow factor, but they have no give and once they bend forget about it, whereas if you had RPM or just the plastic that was on it, at least you have some give and guess what if it does break your replacement costs are a lot cheaper.

I agree once you invest an exuberant amount of money in aluminum upgrades you will never get the money back or for that matter even if you sell your vehicle and you did no upgrades, but maintained it you can expect 30-60% loss on what you paid for it.

Bottom line: If you decide to trick out your vehicle commit to keeping it, unless you want to take a hit on the price. Just my two cents.

I never suck up a loss, because I'll never sell my trucks. End of story

I think it's fair to use the term "new" when something was purchased and never opened or never used (in cases perhaps where there is no packaging). Sometimes people will use "sealed" instead.

The term "like-new" is a common and reasonable description of something's condition. It could be a substitute for "excellent". To me, it means that something was purchased new and then saw very limited or no use.

It's certainly possible that someone bought something, used it once or twice, and realized it wasn't for them. In the context of a vehicle, motor, or really anything with moving parts, odds are it is in better condition than something that was used regularly even for a short period of time.

This is all of course assuming the seller is using these terms responsibly. If someone used a race buggy for an entire season it's not "like-new" just because they took some extra time to clean it up really well. In an extreme case where the seller says "almost new" but the buyer feels it's "worn out" then obviously there is some dishonesty going on.

At some point people need to stop offering less than asking price. If I'm asking 20 bucks, just pay the 20 bucks. If I'm asking 20 bucks it's likely cheap at that price already. Don't try and brow beat me for 2-3 dollars off. I'm not broke, I'll either keep it or throw it away vs. selling to a tight wad. Just out of spite.

IMO

I dont mind making or taking an offer. It its within 10% or so of the asking price not 35% or more. I sooooo wanna make another comment but don't want a week off.

I hear ya, for an item in the 40-50 dollar range and up. I'm asking 40, you offer even say 30, I''l take 35 done deal. But at 20 bucks, don't offer me 17 or 18 just so you feel like you got a deal.

I agree shipping is usually a min of $7.50 so a sale of less $20 is not hardly worth doing IMO

If you dont want it ,broke, or wife will hit you , dont say Ill take it. Then send PMs that your broke if I can wait, wont answer emails at all, or tell me you will take it then say you you need more time. Then say you will take it again but with more time , then come back a day later saying you will pass. Talking about multiple user here not just one.
If your broke or cant make up your mind dont post on the thread that you will take it. Twice this has happened in the last two days, the other with multiple PMs dragging saying he will take it ,TWICE, just to say Im going to pass. Dont waste my time and muddy up the thread with your flip flopping.

The two different fs sections are one for rc one for other items. Does not have to be a surface vehicle.



When after leaving feedback for a newer member after a purchase, two weeks later and none given back I looked and he has never left any for anyone. I totally forgot you can see that. Moral of this long winded sentence is use the itrader system wisely and its beneficial to you. A good seller does not just sell you a product and then done the feedback is just as important.

As a seller I let a buyer know when an item has shipped. I wish buyer would at least let you know when an item arrived, but most just fall into the abisk never to be heard from again. I no longer leave feedback for buyers unless they leave it for me first or they at least contact me after a deal is completed.
