Default Selling TC-4 Drifting/Reg Car street price?

Hi all,

I have a TC-4 Factory car i used for drifting and was used about 10 times in the smooth street area in front of my house. The current setup is with a Mamba MAX 5700 BL system, with Futaba RX and standard steering servo. The body is a painted cadillac CTS body, with absoulutely no scratches.

Would it be better to sell it with the BL system in it, or put a 19t motor with esc installed? I also have reg rubber tires/mounted for the car as well, so it could be used either as a drifter or street racer.

Here is the car as it exists today:

Which version would sell at a higher price?

Thanks....

thx guys, it would have everything but a RADIO. Does that change your estimate? I will not have the need for the BL setup, so I would sell it the way it is (intstalled).

One last question, would I have better luck in selling it here on RCU or on eBay?

Thanks

550 for a ft tc4 in good condition with a mamba, i would pay that with a radio. without the radio i would probably say 475. cuz the factory team tc4 by itself is a cool 3+bills and the mamba is 2bills and then u gotta put it together and all that jazz. I already have one with teh same setup so i cant really call whether i would pay that for it. i think 450 - 475 is a fair price for a hipo machine like that tho.

i dont know about $550.00 though. i know its worth that and more but most people just arent willing to pony up that kind of money on a one shot deal thats still not RTR. unfortunately used RC cars dont command a high resale. brand new mamba 5700 systems can be had for $180.00 at BPP. i picked up a mint TC4 on ebay for $200 bucks. it had a SSG chassis and a full set of extras/spares/stock parts. i've seen the FT cars go for around the same. i would sell it as a roller and include the body, drift and grip wheels, and whatever spare parts you may have. sell all the electronics seperately. i think that way you can recoup most of the money you spent. $375-$400 is more like it. if you get $550.00 thats great.
