    What's a fair price

    What's a fair price for a unmodified, low run time, great shape traxxas spartan with the new tqi controller and 2 3s 5000 mah traxxas lipos. Could also include a trailer with it as well. Any help would be great.

    Trailers I've never seen for less than $100 and the boat as your described is around $250-300 so about $350-$400. The price does vary per individual but this is the price that is common in south Texas.

    I wouldn't give my lipos with a sale unless its a friend who is brand new to the hobby. So that sounds like a fair price with or without lipos.

    If everything was included and they were pretty good name brand lipos I would say anywhere between $450-$550.

    I just gave away what I would estimate to be around $800-1000 worth of lipos as part of my rc liquidation.

    The reason being, I personally wouldn't buy used batteries, and didn't feel comfortable trying to sell used lipos to someone else.

    The nature of lipos being what it is, it is hard to know if there might be a weak/bad cell, or if there is 5 charge cycles or 50 left in the batteries.

    For that reason I view used lipos as having very little value. (The exception being if you know the history of previous ownership)

    Strictly an opinion for consideration.
