just bought tmaxx on ebay need input

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Im just getting into rc after a friend of mine traded an old ipod touch for his tmaxx 2.5 which needs alot of work but still got me addicted. I just bought a tmaxx on ebay and the seller is describing it as a 3.3 but im thinking its a 2.5 because i thought all of the 3.3s had the 2.4 ghz transmitter/receiver. The seller says there is only about 2 hours of runtime on it and it does come with spare parts including 2 spare spur gears and fuel. As long as it runs i think i still got a decent deal even if it is a 2.5 but thought i would have someone with more experience with what to look for check it out. here is the link to the ebay page http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=130926343401
I would appreciate any input good or bad

It could be that the owner swapped a 2.4ghz system into it.

I can't open the link but hopefully you got a good truck.

Re: just bought tmaxx on ebay need input

that is definitely a 2.5
you can tell by the silver cooling head, chevron tires(depends but they were stock on the 2.5 tmaxx) and also the black transmission case which is from the original tmaxx not the updated 3.3...
