man why cant i ever get a parts car and use it for parts

Post by discgolfer72 »

blew the rear diff on my 18mt the other day (threw a dogbone due to cracked shock cap)


instead of ordering a rebuild kit
i decided what the heck ill surf ebay and get some rollers so i can have a slew of spare parts on hand


i ended up with these to auctions for an ok price

the 18's are great cars

small enough to screw around with inside when the weather is crappy
and powerful/tough enough to blast at high speeds outside




tho on to the reason for my thread
lol i cant even think of how many or my rc10's were bought as spare part cars
then some how they always end up as at least rollers sitting on my shelf

im watching a lot of the crappy ecx cricuts cause i have one and the lhs does not stock parts
the only thing keeping me from pulling the triger is i know ill end up with 2-3 more of them sitting on my shelf as well lol



edit
damn just blew up a mamba-25 esc must of had a bad motor (used one that was sitting in my bin's)
oh well good thing castle is about 5 blocks away lol

You can or at least could at one time buy huge lots of boost parts on ebay for next to nothing.
"It is not how you finish but how you qualify unless you qualify bad then it is how you finish."
Words of wisdom from the Cox bros at my local track.
