School Me

I will start this off by saying that I have ZERO experience with RC stuff.

So I have a guy looking to trade me a roller Losi 8ight and a running driving mini tt for some "real" crawler parts.

Can someone give me any type of value on this stuff...let me see if I can upload some pics.

If someone wants to shoot out an offer that would be cool too, I dont really have a use for these other than to take up space in the garage thats at a premium anyway.

Here are the pics, again I dont know anything about this type of stuff. I wouldnt mind having something to dink around with, but I feel like I would use it once and then it would just sit.

No responses is a strange sign to me...I figured that here of all places would have the strongest opinions!

Something looks odd with the Mini TT, its squatting in the rear, maybe missing the second pair of shocks it looks like.

Also hard to tell if all the electronics are in it.

I would say you are looking at $250-300 worth of parts.

Now that you mention it there appears to be a second upper shock mount behind the other shock in the rear that has no shock mounted in it. He said the Mini TT is complete/runs and is ready to go.

Yeah, there are several versions of the Losi 8ight now, that looks like maybe an electric conversion.

As for the HPI, it's kind of a play truck, not much of a racer.

Like the guy above me said, maybe $300 worth of RC stuff.

No more then 300 for em both and the shocks are there but look destroyed on the rear, rebuild kits are around $10,

fun to play with however if elec your going to need a peak charger that can run from$40 to $110 and the batteries arnt your normal everyday battery there's certain perimeters that they have to be in or you'll roast the battery's

What are you looking at trading this fellow?
