RC Flea Market forum rules -- MANDATORY:
(If you don't follow the rules below in full, YOUR POST WILL BE DELETED without warning)
  1. ALWAYS start your "for sale" post title (subject line) with "FS:" and start "wanted" listing titles with "Wanted:"
  2. You may only buy if you have been a member for 3+ months, sell after 6 months, no exceptions (learn why).
  3. Include clear, current photos of any item worth $50+ USD. No "email me for pics," no "pics later," no photos from the web, no exceptions.
  4. List only items that you personally own. Friends & family must use their own accounts. No commercial listings.
  5. Sellers, do not request PayPal "gifting" or any extra fee for PayPal payments. Wrap any desired fees into your item prices.
  6. You may "bump" a thread only if it falls off the first page of topics.
  7. If you aren't seriously interested in a purchase, don't reply to an ad unless you strongly suspect fraud.
  8. When your item sells, edit your thread's title to "Sold," but don't delete the original post.
Warning: Trading (item for item) is extremely risky and fraud-prone, and thus very strongly discouraged. Individuals in small towns can acquire a proof of shipment receipt from a "friendly" US Postal Service employee while an item is actually on hold at the postal station, thus trades can only be based on blind trust.

I have SCX10 that has been very, very lightly used. It has some expensive Mayhem engineering beadlocks. It's basically this exact same thing with the expensive beadlocks.

So my question is. What is it worth as as a complete roller minus a radio? Should I sell the tires and beadlocks seperately? Is anyone here interested?

I would absolutely split the wheels and truck up. Generally speaking the sort of person that wants mayhem wheels doesn't want a stock truck with it, and the sort of person that wants a stock truck doesn't appreciate expensive wheels

Can't help you with price, unless you're interested in what I would expect it to sell for in Australia. They do tend to hold their value better than race gear though.

OK nice one - was in the market couple of months ago- a lot of aluminum down there nice that the top comes off - I would try and snag it at $250 maybe $300. I don't buy things online would have to be in person. Even then I've gotten ripped off because I did not inspect it closely.

You can get a new rtr for $300 -but regardless of upgrades- lots of guys want to make something unique.

Fair point. I'll probably split the wheels and tires from the chassis. How bad will that hurt the resale value to not have wheels and tires for a chassis? I don't have any cheap extras laying around.

The truck is mostly stock with only the Kit version upgrades, so it's a little nicer than an RTR truck.

Isn't that what I said?

Im kinda in the same boat here. Im trying to sell mine with 2 batteries, lots of upgrades and two sets of tires.

I had mine listed at 275 locally. Lots of likes but no takers. And even if you list it as lets say 300 people will always throw a lower offer like 250 or 200. People are trying to get a good deal out if an already good deal.

Im about to trade my rcs for video games or something.

Video games don't keep value either unless they're special. I have a 1/6000 copy of a game that was normally download only, but was done in one small production run one time only and I still can't sell it for much. Most of my collector's editions don't fetch higher values either, with the rare exception (fallout new Vegas for instance still sells for about 150, but that's pretty close to what it was new).

Keep in mind most of my collector's editions were free to me for working on them or at the same studio at the time they were produced, so I'm only gaining money, but I've got a couple that I'm really glad I got for free because they aren't worth much more than a standard copy of the same game. (Halo Reach, I'm looking at you.)

No wheels and tires will hurt. That, plus it being a roller (slider) will hurt even more. That leaves your market down to someone who has a project in mind and wants to pick up a roller cheap, or someone who already has the parts and sees a good opportunity to start a new project.

I listed my SCX-10 locally not long ago, to see what kind of offers I got. Mine is mostly stock, non kit version. Upgrades being a brushless 17.5t sensored system, aluminum hubs, and wheels/tires. Highest offer I got was $170.

I wouldn't expect any more than $150 for yours. Definitely separate the wheels. Those are nice, usually see those sell for $100 and up on RCC.
