I'm selling a t-maxx. There are 8 watchers, but 0 bids.

Do I bid on it?> from my mom's account to start a bidding war? Or just hope they are last second bidders?

Let it roll, if you bid and it sells to you you will have to pay fees. Honestly if you get 325 I will be suprised...

Part it out, best way to get money back.

most likely. I was hoping some chump would see the 4.6/.28 and think he could beat his buddy's t-maxx and go bid crazy.

I've definitely seen lesser trucks advertised for more. Not sold, but advertised...

I think I found your problem, Harold.
Your brushless motor has this big weird heat sink on it, you can't really see the motor. Is it a CC motor? You don't say in your auction. And that little 5 cell hump pack up front doesn't seem to be enough to power a Maxx? I'm also not so sure how to put this, but you kind of left a bunch of trash all over your chassis, I think I see a strange rectangular plastic water bottle and uhhh.. attached to your motor I see some sort of.. let's just say "adult toy". Not sure if you meant to leave that there but I'm thinking that if you took those things off it would be worth more.

I live in MN where the state bird is the mosquito. That's a fog machine on the back. Between the cloud it makes and the noise coming from it I have never been attacked by a mosquito or a lion while driving this r-c.

The adult toy is as it seems. I leave those things everywhere.

On your first question about bidding on your own ebay add.

Its one of the fastest ways to loose your ebay account.
Ebay calls it price bumping and its a big NO NO in their eyes.

True, but it is near impossible to get caught. I have done it plenty before, and i even used the same computer to do it. Like i said its next to impossible to get caught.


Built Ford tough, with Chevy stuff.

Harold just lower your reserve a little and relist it. Don't gamble with no reserve, or you may just end up selling it for $5 to one bidder (James). Drop your price $50 and see what happens. Have your helper clean up the truck and take a better pic of this super NONE BL truck and get-er-done Amego.


SUPERMAXX YOUR LIFE.

You may want to change the ending days on your listings. Having an auction end on a Wednesday isn't going to get you much views. Sunday evening is the best day to end your auctions for maximum exposure. If you have any white poster board you may want to make a white background to take pictures on too. The pictures are what sell the item. For the main pic you may want to take one at a different angle to hook people into having to click on the actual auction to see what it's all about. Just some friendly advice from somebody that does this for a living =)
