    Friends car, I'm responsible for selling

    My friend knows I have gotten into the hobby. He has had this Traxxas Truck for a little while. He did none of the tooling himself, every time he had an issue he took it to the LHS and had it repaired. This is the reason he is getting out of the hobby. I am taking the responsibility of selling this because he has a DX3R w/ case I want to keep out of this transaction. I saw the truck run today and it seemed perfect. Here is what I know.

    RPM arms all the way around
    JR Racing Servo's 4800 and 9100 (9100 for sale on amazon for $149)
    Prophet Plus charger
    Traxxas starter w/ Venom battery pack (can take picture if necessary)
    Body
    Pro Line Badland wheels on some solid black rims

    I have the rig in my garage so I can look or take any necessary pictures. I will also be interested in parting this out if I was able to get enough offers on the parts. Any part offers please PM me.

    I have a number in mind but I am not sure what motor this is, nor do I know enough about anything else to even look this up. Thinking of Ebaying the entire lot and taking my chances. Offers on the pictured set up and pictured set up with DX3R will be looked at. I will respond to any offer I receive that I think is reasonable. If you low ball me and I don't respond make another offer.

    Because I have to per rules I am asking for $500 for this rig. ALL REASONABLE OFFERS CONSIDERED.

    TX/RX available with TRAXXAS truck mentioned below.

    Option 1: Traxxas 2.4ghz w/ receiver
    Option 2: Spektrum DX3R
    Option 3: Spektrum DX3S

    Spektrum receiver may be available. Depends on the offer. Please specify who pays shipping with your offer. This will be placed on ebay with one of the radios and receiver Sunday afternoon with an opening bid of $400+.

    The Traxxas 2.4ghz radio was purchased with my Merv in September. I am assuming there will be no issues with that radio with this truck. I will do research, just mentioning so its clear. $500 asking price with a radio mentioned below. Make an offer with your choice or no tx/rx at all.

    Thanks for looking....

    to make it electric you need a motor and esc. you can get a brushless velinion set on ebay for like $130, some batteries, starting at like $40 for a set dependng on what ones you want, make a little l bracket that mounts to the nitro motor mount for your adjustments. then you need to have a single speed conversion and a forward only conversion in the transmission. for some 5000mah nimh batteries in the setup im looking to be at about $250 exactly on my conversion for a maxx.
