Would You Buy A New Or Used Rc Car?

What’s it going to be?

Okay how about this, would you buy a new or used full size 1:1 car? That’s different, and how can you compare the two you might answer, yes true but it sometimes comes down to how financial you are at the time………..correct? It’s like anything today, if you’re rolling in the $$$$$ no probs but if you aint well, “Houston, we have a problem?!” and so your answer could well be a used RC car which is just mighty fine.

Money’s Tight

There are a lot of passionate RC people out there and they are not all rich, just hard working and some like to even sell their out-dated RC gear to put towards their new ride. As a matter of interest some RC hobby shops offer to sell your item for a small commission also. The other option is to just save up and put your money aside for that special RC car that will put a twinkle in your eye.

No need to buy that brand new RC Porche Boxter for sale you might see in front of your RC hobby shops window, but look Joe Bloggery has a wonderful used Susuki SX4 off roader, fully hopped up going cheap! Like they say, ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ and some of these cars might look a bit cruddy but with a bit of TLC, all is good. For the new kid on the block this is a great way to get started and you usually don’t have to worry about keeping a nice pristine new RC car clean, because a used RC car will most likely have some nice battle scars already on it, and that means less stress!

It Has To Be A Virgin!

With a subtitle like that I could find myself landing in some VERY hot water, but let me explain. You have surfed the net and done your research, you’ve read the reviews and your decision is final and now for you next move. You might decide on the traditional method of visiting all the local RC hobby shops in your area? Oh no, you scoff as you reach for your computer mouse and head to your store online. Not just any store but your favorite one of course! There is nothing more exhilarating than picking up or having an eagerly awaited surprise package come in the mail and then getting to build a brand new RC car. You see, some people won’t have it any other way; it’s got to be new and unused with the full history unveiled over time before your very own eyes.

I Did It My Way

At the end of the day it doesn’t matter too much on what you decide and whether your RC car is new and from your local RC hobby shops, your store online or used. Finance can sometimes pose a problem for some but a little bit of grit and determination won't let this get in the way too much. You could always strive to be a top class RC car international driver that represents your country with lots of sponsors and guess what? Your RC car and parts could very well be free!
