I have bought a lot of used cars (thats an understatement)-and maybe I have no backbone-but if I get a great price and upon dissasembly I find a few not perfect things-like grityy diff, loud bearing or bearings that need oiledbadly-I live with it. USED is USED-is it not?

Again-lets keep this brief-but I am about done with selling stuff online!! You can PM me if you like to keep Jason's thread clean.
I just need to feel like I am not the only one getting screwed over and over lately...
Ray
I agree with you. I have bought a ton of used stuff on Ebay and R/C Tech. Never had any problems as I know used is used. I only want the item to be as described by the seller. If he says perfect/like new that is what I want to see, if he says great shape but not perfct then that is fine. I just want what is discribed. I never mind working on stuff I get to bring it to the level I like which for me is almost perfect if not more. When I buy used I end up putting mostly new stuff on it anyways.

Yes-managing expectations is a big part. I am sure I have glorified a thing or two in an effort to add bling to a boring sale-but I am always cognisant that it could come back and bite me in the behind. SO I try to be truthful. But it seems the days of caveat emptor have gone way to buyer the other extreme.

Its gotten so bad a few times I had to break it down. Like-buddy-you just bought a three month old car and with all the extras I paid $700. YOU just got it for $300.00 shipped. GO buy that one part-yourself-you just made a killing and I lost $400 in a matter of months. Now you want me to go buy the $2 part-pay shipping to me-and then pay shipping to you???

Of course I do it-I am not a jerk-I think 99% of people who have bought stuff from me are happy. Just lately its geting stupid.

Like the one race day old RC car I bought this summer-bearings were dry as a bone-he either didnt re-oil after taking shields off or the oil he used was too thin. Bearings started to seize one after another. The diff was not good-he had so much lube in them-I couldnt tighten them down enough to not slip. I rebuilt it. He was quite proud of his chassis prep-I didnt think it was that great.I never sent him an e-mail-never complained.

Now-dont get me wrong-if I forget to put in the manual or motor screws or the servo mounts, I send them out. OR-if they dont send them to me-I ask for them!! Its the "other Demands" that kill me.

Am I now beating a dead horse?

Thanks for the emotional support everyone-must be my time of the month.

Ray

Ray: Hope you feel better now!! If not I know a pretty big guy you could use to vent on someone!

Jason: Had to get the Hurricane batteries HUH!!! Hope your ready for this one it's not looking too good right now. We may have to use the generator for something besides racing.
Hopefully everything will be ok by Sunday.
