BTW -
I know the one in the auction is not a true RC. But I think some of the parts could be used to make a Micro Crawler.

Take the tires and the body, throw away the rest. The tires are pretty soft and works fine.
I'll take some pictures and put it up later.

That's not an RC car. It only goes in a straight line, turn on and go type truck. I actually turned one of those in an r/c car. Except the body wouldn't fit back on and it didn't perform too well. I cut the car horizontally in the middle, bought another motor and pinion gear (one motor for each half chassis). A servo connected the two chassis together and it would twist the car to turn. I wired up the motors to an esc and plugged it all together. It worked but without a differential, it hard a tough time turning at high speeds and would roll because it was top heavy.
