Default ebay has been ruined

Ebay has been ruined

Just venting. Ever since the damn Wal-Mart crawler came out you can not search ebay for rock crawler, crawler, scale crawler without getting 500 responses for the damn things everything from wheels to batteries they are ruining the build it yourself approach to this hobby with the damn things.

Just by typing "-nylint" you will eliminate about half the auctions.

Dont worry about it, it will go away in about 4 months,

But think of it this way, those little bastards will get them hooked on crawling, then they will spend more, and get better crawlers, come here and ask stupid questions because they dont know how to search. Then that means we get to talk to them and teach them a few things, like how to read. Just my thoughts.

Its not the nylints being a issue it is the little kids who buy them and think they are cool all of a sudden. They just want to be like they're nieghbor who spent over $2500 on his crawler. Besides it is mostly kids buying them and kids get over stuff it is just a fad for them probaly.

It still is funny looking at the "modded" and "custom" ones for a good laugh.
