nice setup. seems like used losi sells bad, like $200-. you got everything on your 8t to make sell as good as possible used..id either part it out on ebay or just sell whole package. some days they sell good and the next they dont, its a chance you take everytime you put somthing on ebay

You're best bet is to put it on Ebay and roll the dice. I'd guess you'd only get about $250 at most if you sold it on here. The GH Racing bling doesn't add much value since most racers don't want that stuff.

Looking to sell mine as well, so I've been researching. A brand new 8T is going for $300 at most online stores right now, just for reference.

i have just bought two different losi 8t's one for 200.00 locally, and the other was 325.00 but it came with two futaba brushless servos, and a futaba spectrum rx.

i would (if i was to have that much in any r/c car) put as much stock stuff back on it that you may have. then sell the truck as a roller with the hop-ups that are left on it, then i would do many small auctions for the hopups that you took off it. -it is more time but you will get more views at your stuff than saying "one tricked out 8t" or "race ready" if you post them all at the same time on ebay you can include " please check out my other losi 8t parts, and i will combine shipping"

and if you are intersted in selling some of teh parts off it please let me know my email is navy_eo_seabee@yahoo.com -hope my 2 cents helps-arick

I agree. Sell the truck as a stock roller, and sell all the option parts seperate.
