    Rovan Baja

    Just picked this up for $300 and I know it's only a clone but for that price I think it's alright there's hardly a mark on it.

    It may only be the angle of the photo, but the buggy looks bent on at the front, as I say, it could just be the angle of the pickie

    She does look a little bent, but for 300 bux still a bargain

    Even if it is bent, what does a used chassis run for? 20-30 bux?

    Hopefully just the angle of the pic tho!

    It would be a wicked care free basher!!

    Even a descent used chassis is around 80-90 dollars, most times if only a small bend, the top plate can be straightened, but I suggest replacing with a TR top plate

    Just the angle of the pic guy's, the top plate is straight and the chassis looks like it's just the normal bend it's in really good shape. The bloke said it would be lucky 2 have 2 hours on it.

    Looks like you picked up a bargain in that case

    Just took it for a run and it performed well, with the amount of wear on the rear tread before and after I run it, which was only on grass, i'd say it would be lucky to have had a full tank of fuel through it, and I only put half a tank through.

    Just what ever they run stock I guess, i'll put some savox servo's in it when they clag, but until then I think my first upgrade will be a killer bee switch and then i'll just upgrade as things break.
