Is this a good deal for a Nitro 4 tec RTR?

Hey guys! Recently I have been searching my local CL for a 3.3 4tec (which would be my first nitro car). I found one for $120 that comes rtr. He says it runs good, has brand new tires and rims, but the body is a little rough. I dont know much about nitro so do you guys think this is a good deal? Do you guys have any questions you think I should ask him? Any kind of help would be awesome! Thanks!

Here's the ADD:

I would ask how old it is, and how many gallons of fuel have been run through it.

It looks like an older AM radio, so I would bet it has a lot of run time on it.

The new 2.4ghz ones sell for about $400 new, so I'm a little suspicious of the condition of it for $120. If you know anyone that has nitro experience, I would bring them when you go look at it and definitely see how it runs in person.

If it ran decent I would say go for it, but plan to do some repairs. I have a GT3B radio so I would be trashing the stock one anyway. I really like that car and would try to get it for $100 if it was in my area.
