    It depends on which model emaxx and condition. Ignore any batteries that come with it, they're just a bonus item they could be bad.
    Problems.The manual's good starting point. Simple

    depend on model and condition... also has it had any upgrade parts is it stock what are the age of the motors have the brushed motors had lipo put through them etc. there isnt enough information here to know of a price for it.. send in some pictures and more detail and you will get an answer. I paid 150 for my 3906 and that was stock. im doing it up atm. and I also got a 4907 maxx for 150 which had two tanks from new run in it...

    If you have seen it.

    If not, ask if it has black chassis with slots in battery tray.Or grey chassis.
    If it's grey ask if it has the 2.4 radio. Or the AM radio
    Maybe about $200 for a upgraded 3906, Or under $150 for stock.
    For 3905/3903 upgraded about $250, Stock $150-$200
    If it's dirty take off some money.

    they have upgraded the esc. im just worried about the engines being cooked from lipos on them. I bout my maxx in slightly better condition with the original esc on it for 150, its had newer shock towers and shocks and tyres put on it from a newer maxx also. so your saving money by buying that truck. just be aware those engines might be due for replacement as they are only brushed. but you can see by all the tape on the batteries that they have chopped and changed terminals. and the esc has been butchered to change the terminals from the traxxas ones to a different set. will be interesting to see what else they have done to it

    Ignore the batteries the two 7cell are different. I think the two 6cell are the same, hard to tell. but disregard them anyway.
    You won't know it's brushless ready until you strip it down so assume it's not.
    Looks like the narrow 3906.
    They should of cleaned it, had better pics and put the correct screws in. Look at shocks pic 1 and bulkheads pic 5.
    a few little things need changing, $120 most i'd pay. The start bid is $130 so i think they know what it's worth and know someone will bid not knowing that there is different maxx's

    Looks pretty rough Looks like the have been using their tmaxx for parts. Never seen a emax with a clean air filter sticker on it..hehe. If they are to lazy to at least clean it up what else are they to lazy to do?

    best option is to wait and have a look on ebay and craigslist or ask ypur lhs if they know of a rc club member that is looming to sell off some of his trucks. for your first truck you want something you dont have to sink alot of money into to get it right
