    Cheapest anyone has put together a 4x4 slash rtr

    I saw someone on a forum don't remember if it was this one or another where someone bought one from a friend for 50$ or something crazy. But i am thinking more like 250 rtr minus batteries and chargers are about as cheap as people are selling them for. I should know I'm hunting for one and for $250 i have found alot of artr junk or just missed a $250 rtr in decent shape.

    Did you buy it as a roller and budget build it together or rtr used.
    I'm not interested in personal spare parts builds( although that's impressive to have that much parts accumulation)

    I am doing a pede 4x4 right now on the cheap. I am using every path to find parts including ebay auctions, local tracks, craigslist etc. Dont think I will pull it off for under 350 although it will have an upgraded motor, esc, shocks, and tires.

    I picked up a rear diff for under 10$ shipped from an auction on Thanks giving. They sell for 25$ or more just about every time. Holidays are great for getting good auction deals. If you are patient with the auctions, you will save money, but it will take some time.

    I believe you could be talking about me. I bought an Ultimate edition for $50.00 that was like new. Not from a friend but the internet.
