    What's she worth?

    I'm thinking about selling the Billet Bandit. For those of you who missed (or forget) that build; it's a Rustler... Sorta. Front to back, it has...
    STRC bulkhead
    REM arms (front and rear)
    STRC hinge pins
    Traxxas fiberglass tie bar
    STRC steering blocks
    STRC caster blocks
    Stock axles, pins, and hexes
    JConcepts G-Locs on Rulux wheels (front and rear)
    STRC front shock tower
    Integy graphite upper chassis
    Some cheap but good servo (not waterproof)
    Stock steering bell cranks
    The big metal Traxxas links
    Custom aluminum chassis (smoothed bottom)
    The battery is held in with standoffs, a carbon fiber plate, and thumbscrews and it takes flat packs
    STRC rear shock tower
    FLM Trans case
    REM arms as stated before
    STRC axle carriers
    Stock Trans internals (probably going to lock the diff though)
    The rest of the electronics are stock VXL stuff
    Custom painted bandit body
    All stainless hardware

    She would be a speed machine if she had lipos. Unfortunately I'm not ready to take the lipo leap and NiMH just doesn't cut it in this beast. I've got hundreds of hours into this thing. Everything was de-anodized so that it could be polished to a mirror finish. Everything is highly polished, every nut and bolt, even the axles. It's currently in pieces being gone through so I can't post any pictures. What do you think it's worth?

    Lol come on guys. I can't remember my username and password for photobucket so I guess I'll have to wait until I get it back together to get a serious answer.

    Edit-got in but I guess I don't have any pics!!?? Sorry. I'll have to give you the link to the old build thread. Hold on.

    Here's the build thread. It's come a long way from the last picture. Everything was disassembled, de-anodized, and polished. The blue on the upper chassis is silver now, the zip ties are off the ESC... and fit and finish was just generally improved.
