I am considering selling my first foray into the "adult" rc world, my Traxxas Summit purchased last year. Honestly, I love this thing but with two other rigs and a third being funded, I just don't drive it anymore.
Since I am having trouble parting with the truck and haven't sold one before, please let me know if there is an interest and shoot me a pm on a price you think its worth....please just be fair. This truck sold brand new for about $525 at that time, and I have another $300 in upgrades and near new replacement parts.
Here are more details:
40-Series Moabs (minimal wear) on Axial black chrome beads, weighted
Aluminum turnbuckles and push rods front/rear
Two Bodies: Blue Summit w/cage and Black HPI Rubicon
Radio included (note: this isn't the newer 2.4ghz sold today with the Summit)
Everything works great on this truck, cleaned after every run and I basically have stripped and detailed it twice since buying it in April '09.
Servos are near brand new, first one died under warranty and the second I burned up and replaced about 2 months ago.
There are the normal scratches on the bottom, and some on the bodies but no cracks or damage. Most of it came from abrasive quartz rip-rap around here.
I have an extra half shaft, and probably a few other parts lying around. Anything I find, will be throw in.
The photos attached were taken last Nov., but I had back surgery in December, so it hasn't been driven but a handful of times since then. The Rubicon body was brand new at that time, so it has a little trail graphics on it now and I can send updated pics if anyone wants them.

Unfortunately I have to agree with Dadx2mj......you usually dont get much extra for your upgrades....several nice Summit's out there for $350-$400....some get lucky and get $450 ish depending on accessories(batts, tires etc)
I just sold a 6 month 3903 2.4ghz Emaxx with over $330 in RPM and aluminum for $280....hardly seems worth selling...but I needed the $.$379 stock + $330= $709 got a lousy $280...oh well leason learned only buy what you are going to keep!!
Wow, that is a beautiful summit. I love that body and tire/wheel combo. If I had any money, I would buy it from you. Personally, I wouldn't take anything less than $400, but that is just me and I know that others would disagree. Also, how did you paint the stock wheel wanabe beadlock rims black? I've got a white summit and the rims are red, so I would like to change the color.
Why can't other people share my opinions?
Thanks for that clarification. I was thinking it but didn't post it. I've seen Summits for as high as $900

I think people need to SUBTRACT the cost of the hop up from the retail price of a vehicle, not add. Most people want to personalize their vehicle to their liking. Buying someone's idea of a cool vehicle is like buying an apple with a bite already taken out of it.
The back surgery did not have the outcome I had hoped, but such is life. I will keep plugging away at the recovery and see how it goes.
As for the price, I will have to agree and disagree on some of the responses. People tend to apply the "general 50% rule" to all things, but as my brother would say about the car industry a vehicle is only worth what someone will pay for it. The NADA guide, Kelly Blue Book, etc. are worthless unless you know the real supply/demand in the market and what value the vehicle has to others. That said, I don't want to rip anyone off hence why I posted it here to get the opinions and I appreciate everyone weighing in on it. The conversations I have had with several LHS's is that people cannot find used Summit's out there and don't want to spend $530 for a new one. The upgrades I have done are still pretty standard, no changes that people would want to definitely undo.
Having said all this, I am not looking to take advantage of a dry market for used Summits, but I don't have to sell it either. Fortunately, I am not in a financial strain to get rid of it, as I just plan to spend the money on my new XR10 and other two rigs.
Thanks again for everyone's input, I do appreciate the candor. Happy New Year to you all and shout at me if you think it is of interest to you, and I will be happy to post it in the marketplace if it is officially "for sale".
