Hey guys,

My mom found this ad on a website regarding a new nitro R/C car. What are your opinions on this.

FS , nitro powered rc car HPI RS4 3SS with radio and lots of extras, works great, still lots of compression, This thing is fast, about 40 to 50MP/H, this is not scale speed, this is ACTUAL speed.
call for details,
$225 for everything

I just finished talking to this guy on the phone with a guy who is selling his nitro car. He told me that the only things i would need for this car is a glow plug and a starter box. The reason he took off the pullstart is because he bought a new motor and took off the pullstart because the motor weighed less. I do trust this man as I have talked to him and he tells me that i can come see the car any time and he will run it for me.

So help me out, should i buy it? Why or why not?

buy from this site and do some research on here and ask questions. try and buy local and check ur local hobby shop if they carry parts for whatever truck u want to buy . good luck . buying used is always a gamble
