Well, it's a generation old, so you should get it for a very reasonable price. It came out in early 2006, so it's going on three years old. The chassis is shorter, it has smaller shocks and the weight distribution is slightly rearward of the current truggies, but it should get you around the track just fine. I don't think the engine adds much to the value because who knows what kind of use its had, but if they didn't run it until recently, then it could be in good shape. The servos only add to the price if they're high-speed with metal gears. Standard plastic gear servos can be used until they blow-up, but they don't add to the price. You're think in the right price range. I wouldn't go any higher. You can pick up fairly clean ST-RR for aroudn that price with no engine or radio gear.

Yea I got my st-rr for 385 but it came with 2 150 dollar servos. I was very pleased. That was also quite a while back when they were worth a little more.

And it came with 6 brand new sets of tires (were still in package) and 2 brand new bodies.

Put a v-spec in that bad boy and it roars. Coulda had a st-rr
