Default used t-maxx 2.5 value?

well i got a used t-maxx 2.5 a few weeks ago for my little brother and we got it and it doesnt work right. it seems to be out of tune and no hobby shops around me seem to deal with these things so i am getting rid of it. i just dont know the value.

it is a t-maxx 2.5 w/ the following upgrades
alum. flywheel
alum. bumpers
alum. shock towers
performance exhaust
futuba steering servo
and a few more aluminum parts.
and
(2) sets of tires
(2) bodies


any help would be apreciated. i would keep it i just dont have the timne to screw with it. i have other things i need to take care of.

Ebay is always a good thing for your situation.. I would say if it's in good shape you will fetch $250 or so. They started going down, but after the 3.3 release, the 2.5s are seeming to hold in that range. $200 low book in hard run shape (5/10), $275 high book for near perfect shape (8-9/10).

It had an aluminum flywheel stock, so I am assuming you mean a vented flywheel or something.

I wouldn't reserve it personally. It takes more of your money on pretty much a sure thing. Reserve auctions cost a lot more then no reserve auctions. I never reserve RC car auctions, because the market will always pay what the truck is worth- sometimes more. Unless it's listed wrong, which then I usually scoop up myself.

Take good pictures, write a good description, and you will get $225+ for it if it is in good shape.
