They are a ton of fun on a track! Won't be raced competitively though as parts are easyish to find, but expensive...

Nice score Zac! Parts are hard to find and will cost you, but they are highly sought for. You got a lot of good stuff with the lot as well.

Thanks! Ya I was on the fence about keeping them as I could double my money and not have to invest in them, or invest a little and break even, or invest a little and keep them as they're nicely setup and hopped up..

I got a $300 + shipping offer over on RC10 talk Wednesday for them.. but kinda don't want to sell them haha at least separate

I went from 1 buggy to 5 in 3 weeks haha

XX
XXX
RC10CE
RC10 re-re worlds (the first one i built, traded, and just bought back)
RC10B4.1 Worlds - and this will be a racer so $750 - $800 into this one here in the next coming months.. (full rebuild + spares of everything)

Very cool! I have always been a Losi fan. I have a couple hot rod brushed motors here that would be at home in those..

LOL ya! The B4 Worlds will be here Monday, and sadly it hit me today - 5 months is barely enough time to get a motor built for my car so I need to start asap if I'm to make the June 4th/5th Mopars in the Park so effective immediately my 2wd Slash and clod resto are for sale... as well as some slot car stuff.. LOL

The 4.1 biuld will be slow, I am likely selling the Novak 17.5 combo I got as it is a spec setup and will not be competitive on the level I need

Well a decent hiatus due to my 1:1 71 Demon but I'm back! Working on my XXX a little! Haven't touched the XX CR - have RPM rod ends waiting for it but not sure I'll put them on or not..

Bought a EA3 XXX CR for some nice Trinity blue anodized parts! Just got done fitting them last Thursday!

About a month after posting this thread I was lucky enough to find a NOS Trinity 15t arm NIP so I swapped out the NOS 27t arm for the 15t.. took it for a test drive after breaking in the arm/brushes on 5v or so and WOW it flies! Now my favorite buggy out of my collection.

Here is what I managed to get off the XXX EA3 CR - it had a blue aluminum rear arm mount, but I found out the hard way it will not fit a BK2 buggy so it will stay with the EA3 -

14 or so anodized blue finishing washers
Anodized blue shock collars
Nos fiberglass blue plaid front shock tower (have another NIP that is blue glitter)
Anodized blue front hinge pin brace
Anodized blue front bulk head
Anodized blue front axle hex's
Well worn anodized blue wheel nuts
Added some stainless hardware as well
Correct cvd's (had aluminum XXX4's in it)
Also found out it has a full set of TiNi coated hinge pins!

AND just bought today - NOS Trinity blue rear wheel spacers and rear hinge pin mount!
