    Does it have the stock Velineon system?

    It's hard to say without seeing the truck and accessories. But, if everything's in good condition, then it's not too bad a deal. I'd try for $200.

    The battery is certainly nothing special, nor the extra body. If its in good shape, I'd say thats a decent deal. If its all beat up dont give him $220.

    How does she look? This doesn't show all the extras but the 2.4 receiver and radio is brand new he says.

    $220 is not a terrible price I guess, with the 2.4 system and new body, extra pede wheels/tires......But liked mentioned, the battery adds no value to the package, And it is the oldest first run VXL, that is not waterproof, and has the motor wires that plug directly into the esc. Which there were alot of problems that some guys had with the female connectors coming loose (unsoldered) off the circuit board.

    If it were me, I might shop around first.
    My previous sig conflicted with a forum policy.

    Good notes on the first version VXL system. That motor could be worn out too. Shopping around some more would be a good idea. Also, this person may come back cheaper if you do. I doubt that 220 is the lowest they'd go.

    I'm just saying, the tx in the picture isn't 2.4 and unless he has a 2.4 tx, the 2.4 rx doesn't do much good. Oops, went back over the picture post. Still, I think sub 200 would be a better deal

    Keep looking. There is a lot of Rusty's out there. Be patient and you'll find a sweet deal.

    i wouldnt pay more than 180 for it. old esc, old motor, even with the 2.4 it dont look like there is a receiver box for it.
