    Worth it?

    I was just wondering if anyone out there knows how much a fairly new Revo 3.3 goes for used. I found one in great shape for $400. it is only a year old and has less than 10 runs on it. the guy claims to have only used it in a ball field. But like i said, it's in great shape. Thanks in advance for any help or insight that you guys can provide.

    heres the thing, how much is one BRAND new?

    when buying a used nitro always assume the engine is bad, you can never tell if they did proper tunning or drove it hot or even broke it in right. always assume they didnt and mark the price accordingly.

    even great condition its still not new so if it was me? i would not pay that much for a revo even if i knew the people could tune properly.

    $400 seems I bit high to me unless it really is in perfect condition. I picked up a used one for a crawler project or spare parts (I haven't decided yet)that was in ok condition and functions properly for $175cdn (engine runs good,doesn't hold a tune that great) the thing is you won't know if the engine was broken in properly,I would ask to see it running and check over the electronics. Post some pictures if you get it.

    $300 is the going rate on average; now they are few and far in between.

    Ok guys, thanks. I'll offer him less and see if he bites. I would be new to Nitro but not to the electric side. I current own a moded Slash.

    have a 3.3 for your first nitro, let alone a used one can spell heart ache... as i said, you never know how it was treated and tunning is awhole 'nother animal.
