So, you want to make some money huh? I think you are in the wrong place! We racers just like to build our cars and to maintain so I think you better apply to a job at a LHS of manufacturer who sells RTR kits!

i used to work at a hobby shop and we charged $100 labor for assemby plus $45 for paintiing to start. Then you have to warranty your work because you will have come backs.

Mate take my advice, don't do it as it will be more trouble than its worth. My mate owns a model shop and used to put kits together for customers. He used to get customers coming back in with a broken car saying that it went out of control due to X Y and Z and wanted him to fix it for free. So he has now stopped building kits for people because it was causing him so much trouble.
