No matter how many upgrades you put on it, its STILL a Traxxas Rustler! For the same price, you can get better trucks. You might try eBay, but I still dont expect youll get that much for it. Sorry,

Truthfully, I wouldnt pay any price for the truck. Its a Rustler - and like I said, most other trucks beat it hands down around the track no matter how many upgrades!

Still, I think for what you have, you might get $130. $200 if you had a radio, battery and charger.

Dont get me wrong - it isnt a bad truck. Actually, the HobbyTown I work for sells a ton of em because theyre an excellent ready built electric truck. But that soon is changing now that you can get the RC10 T3 RTR for only about $20 more!

Try eBay or RCOnline.com

Good luck selling it!

Hey! I also work at HobbyTown! Columbia, MO.

Anyway, $165 is a great price for this truck. I'd pick it up if I had the extra cash. I know a few people wanting to get into the hobby so I'll let them know.

exclusive offer

the price of $165 with an extra bettery and charger is only available VWtechie and his buddies at the hobby store as long as they buy it by next week. i say this b/c i only made the offer of the extra bettery and charger to sell this package faster. if it won't, then forget it. i have a potential buyer right now who is waiting on my pictures for me to e-mail to him.
