WTB: Used Nitro RC Truck - Traxxas / HPI / Losi

I'm looking to buy a good working nitro powered RC truck or truggy that I can beat the shit out of. My Traxxas E-Maxx just doesn't cut it and I'm sick of recharging batteries and fixing it all the damn time.

Need something reliable and fast. A good backyard RC truck that is good for offroad dirt tracks and jumps. I was recommended to buy Losi for reliability or a Traxxas Revo but I am open to suggestions.

Post what you gots.

You've actually managed to break your E-maxx? WTF did you do? Traxxas shit is built like a rock.

You might want to check out some of the RC car forums - people sell their shit super cheap there.

I've got a HPI MT2 18ss with some add ons that I haven't used in a while. Figure I'd post

maybe 1/2 gallon ran though it. broken in. I'd try and start it but i don't have an ignitor here

edit: pics added. it's been cleaned since (pics are 2 or so months old, ran it and cleaned it once since then)






make offer? i've got plenty of gear to go with it and all original parts too. i've got a nice charger and JR XS3 remote too if you want that as well.

Ya can have my Duratrax Nitro Evader for $150, I would include the fuel but ya can't ship that. It has seen it's share of breaks but all fixed, I think the coupler for the engine and muffler broke but I would fix it and make sure it works 100% before shipping it out.

Yeah.. I broke the A-Arm on my EMaxx.. need to invest in some aluminum replacement parts. This is the reason I emphasized durability. My friends and I give these things hell. I can't count how many times we demolished my Traxxas Stampede. But we we have the technology to always rebuild it, better, faster, and stronger. Do you have any suggestions as to which forums are the best ones to check out?

I'm not very familiar with fair prices for used nitro RC trucks we've seen a few in action and we want something faster that will laster longer than 15 mins. I got lucky with the my Stampede because I picked it up at a church rummage sale for $1 and I bought the EMaxx for $50 off a local guy desperate for cash through Craigslist.

I've never heard of the Duramax Evader or HPI Rush. Do you guys have any pics?

I bought it new for around $330 Ready to Run.

http://www.duratrax.com/cars/dtxd62.html

I will take real pics though if you want.

I would send whats left of the gallon of fuel but like I said I think UPS would throw a fit.

Although I'll check anyway because sites do sell fuel so they have to ship it somehow.

I'll check around ebay to get some better ideas of pricing.

Wife says I have to sell one of my electric trucks before I can buy a gas powered one cause I have too many toys.

Anyone interested in an Traxxas EMaxx or Stampede w/ upgrades? I'm probably going to fix and clean them both up so I can throw them on eBay to raise my RC nitro fundage up.

Damn man - I've run my E-maxx into so many concrete walls and whatnot - and it's barely got a scratch on it.

I don't remember any good RC car forums - I haven't been active on any for years.

$50 is a friking steal for an E-Maxx.

I've got a tmaxx that I abused and broke quite a bit of the plastic on and replaced with metal.

It was my first beefy RC car and I regret getting gas instead of electric, but I blew a bunch fo stupid money on it cause I was a retard and it's got a new motor and bunch of spare parts that I can include and stuff, but it'd need a bit of fixing up. I put after run oil in the engine last time so it should just take a quick clean to get running in some form. Rechargable battery pack and all that.

I dunno what it's worth though, ,if you are interested let me know.

Actually I still kinda want an e-maxx, what condition is yours in really? I would most definately be willing to consider some form of a trade.

I just finished upgrading all the suspension arms to the RPM wide out plastic kit (better than aluminum IMHO - lighter, just as durable, and cannot be bent). I have 2 new Venom 3000mAh battery packs with about 5 runs on each. It has the Monster Maxx motors, Novak EVX speed controller, an Escalade body and the stock body. I also have a few aluminum parts I have yet to install (bulk heads and skid plates).

BTW My EMaxx is back on the road..

I also just put some upgrade on the Stampede - Method 15 turn motor, Tazer 15t Speed Controller, 3000mAh Venom batt pack with 3 runs on it, IMEX All T Dawg tires w/ foam, 2 new main gear plates, 3 different motor gears, adjustable aluminum shock all around.

I'm never gonna get my money back from these black holes..

If you don't want shit to break, you need a 1/8 scale buggy.

do you have a rccaraction forum account? if so http://forums.radiocontrolzone.com/s...d.php?t=229810.

if not, email me at skadebo at gmail. I'm selling my MP-7.5 and starter box. basically you need a transmitter and receiver. $165 and $50 for buggy/starter box respectively.
