To add to the discussion, many people will not pay full price when buying "used" electronics. Unless you paid cash for the electronics and are willing to give the receipt to the person who bought them, you can't guarantee or warranty that the electronics are good. Read through the trader feedback forums (http://www.rctech.net/forum/trader-feedback-18/
) to find out all of the ways r/c deals can go bad.
I have a few suggestions...
- Find a place to race the TC4 and have fun with it. It can be a very capable car for USVTA or USGT. A good driver can even be competitive with a TC4 in Stock Touring Car classes.
- Find someone who would be willing to trade you something for the TC4.
- Sell the individual components (or save the electronics for a different chassis).
You also need to consider that someone can buy a complete Club Racer TC4 brand new for $150 (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...club&search=Go
). They could also buy a decent new speed control/motor combo for around $150. So someone can basically get a TC4 (minus tires/body) new for $300, which is why it is overly optimistic to ask $400 for a TC4 with electronics.
