Hi guys,
I know this isn't available to people with under 10 posts, but if you are looking to get into the hobby and you want to buy a buggy or other RC items, isn't it counter productive to lock the for sale section to new users?

I understand what your saying but dishonest people and spammers etc have impacted on members. So this is in place to make sure people are here for the right reasons. It's used on other forums as well.... end of the day I can't please everyone!

realistically, it isnt that hard to get 10 posts up. go do an introduction post, you'll get the posts up in no time. 

Plus, for new members, if you want something in particular, you can put a post in the wanted section.

Hi guys,
I know this isn't available to people with under 10 posts, but if you are looking to get into the hobby and you want to buy a buggy or other RC items, isn't it counter productive to lock the for sale section to new users?

As the others have said, the rue about the for sale section are in place for specific reasons.

If you are here looking to get into the hobby, then make a post ( I wouldn't say it has to be in the for sale section initially ) and let people know that your looking to get into the hobby and let them know what you maybe looking at getting.

You'll find that in no time flat you'll rack up the required amount of posts anyway.

Cheers Dave.

I do understand it, but while I didn't have a buggy an I was looking, having access to the for sale section would have helped a lot!
Its frustrating that a few people always ruin it for the majority!

And with that you now have access to the for sale section. Happy browsing!

i know, I just wish I'd had access to it a week ago when I was looking for (and bought) a buggy!

There's always going to be arguments for and against, I can see both sides.
