    How does this rustler look?

    Thinking about buying this rustler just need some info on how it stacks up upgrade wise, motor/esc and condition wise. Here are a few pics.




    The upgrades include RPM slash rear a-arms, RPM front & rear bearing carriers, STRC front aluminum bulkhead, RPM bumper, adjustable camber links at all corners, updated slipper clutch w/metal gear trans, TRX Caster blocks, and a traxxas 2075 servo. The setup is powered by a 3500kv Tacon motor and MMP ESC. The mmp's fan went out so he just removed it. he rear tires are rpm slingshots with proline dirt works. The front tires are just the regular stock tires.I would like to think it is very well upgraded in the spots it needs to be. I just want your guy's opinions on what you would pay and if it looks to be in good shape.
    As always thanks for the advice

    It's about perfect as far as a durability/performance combo goes. I'd expect to pay around $250... maybe a little more.

    I think 250 is to high , I would give about 175 maybe a little more but not over 200 . How's the Body ? That is the older style frame . JMO

    I was also thinking $150-$200 depending on if it came with that receiver and it it also had a radio and what kind it is.

    Truck has some nice upgrades, but also looks like it's had some hours put on it. The MMP is probably the single biggest selling point. Those Tacon motors are pretty cheap from the start, so you can't really put a big price tag on it. Aluminum upgrades are nice and good brands. The wheels are pretty much throw aways IMO. Rims don't even match and I honestly think the truck looks like it's worth more without those eyesore wheels on it.

    I would offer $150 shipped for it and go from there. Definitely no more than $200.

    He is asking 200 shipped plus it comes with a few extra parts which I know are just to sweeten up the deal. I offered him my t maxx trade as seen here http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8971844 how is that for a trade?

    for 200 shipped, i wouldn't bite, try to talk him down to arround 170- then atleast you will have saved some cash to upgrade to a decent pair of tires or a decent body. but otherwise i'd say too much, and i wouldn't trade him that t-maxx either

    There is a lot of wear on the whole underside, chassis and a-arms, I think he's beat it up to the point where it's about to fall apart and he's trying to unload it. I don't think I'd buy it. It has had A LOT of use in it's life, and those are some old shocks. So you'll need all new parts IMO. But at least he took good pics for you to make your own choice, give him credit for that.
