I'd say $400-500. But ultimately, its worth what someone will pay

A lot of times on builds like these, with really common and cheap frames, you could be better off parting them out.

Used RC stuff usually goes for 1/4 to 1/3 of what they sold for new. Sitting on it and waiting for the right buyer can elevate the price up to about 1/2 of what it sold for new, providing it's all in excellent condition. Stuff that's new in box is still hammered on price, going for 60% to 70% of new pricing.

Didn't want to start a new thread as of yet. I am on a bit of a mission though. I've been of the opinion from the start of this hobby though that MAP is bad for the consumer. I was surprised and upset at what I found yesterday. Up until about 2007 or 2008 I believe, MAP was considered to be illegal and had been for over ninety years. It's only been for a few years since the courts have allowed it to happen.

There are now several entities that are fighting to get the latest decision overturned. Here is a link to a Wall Street Journal article on the subject. There are two or three more of these WSJ articles but I'm having trouble finding them now. Please read up and start writing. MAP is nothing more than a way to ARTIFICIALLY inflate prices far beyond what they would be if the market alone was able to dictate the prices. You know. Like the way things worked for almost one hundred years in this country. And, for good reason. Read Up!
