Im starting to shop gsx and was wondering if there were any things specidc to look out for
I'll throw in this information also. I would buy a modded car but for somebody who isn't very familiar with a particular platform that may not be a good idea. They wouldn't know a quality mod from a poorly done hack job with chinabay parts. Its going to depend on the platform and the individual. I've been around the block enough I'm not afraid of anything. These days I am going to say a modded dsm is suspect. Way too much chinabay stuff out there with cheap owners. That wasn't the case years ago. Either know what you're looking at or take somebody with you that knows. I look for straight body and no rust more than I care about mechanical issues.I always see people say to shy away from a modded car. Me personally, I would prefer a modded car that was documented or at least checked out when you go look at it. If your goal is to mod the car, nothing wrong with getting a head start on the build with a car that is modded the way you want or at least close to it. Plus you will be able to get that modded car for cheaper than it will cost you to get a stock car to the same point.
My .02, don’t turn a car away just because it’s modded as there are some nicely modded cars o it there.
