Default what if i was going to sell this ? how much ? 4x4 sc10/8 rc8b

after some long consideration and stress i THINK i have decided to boycott nitro, so i think i might sell off my motors, well nitro gear in general, but to go brushless i MAY have to sell off my 4x4 sc10/8/B to purchase new items for my buggy.

so heres what i did.

i dumped my sc8, was just opting for a buggy chassis swap but ended up basically building from new a ..damn not sure how to word all of this. lets say its an RC8B with sc8 shock towers and bumpers.

once i got it built it sat til the snow was gone(winter project) and i had it out last week for NOT even a full tank of gas.so about 10 minutes, no word of a lie!! lol
it has
-RC8B A B C plates i have the D plate but it not installed as the sc8 bumper wont mount with the D plate.
-NEW FT front and rear chassis braces
-NEW rc8b updated radio tray
-NEW FT brakes
-NEW arms,bushings, spacers
-NEW Fioroni chassis
-NEW sc8 shock towers
- NEWly painted pearl purple with ghost stars(very cool color, hard to get a good pic of it) and metallic green, sc10 body custom fit. small crack on the drivers side down low where the material is thinner
-4 NEW cvds 2
-NEW center shafts
-RC8B spec steering
-FT links in the upper tierods and servo link
-ALL new bearings
-ALL new diff fluids
-Jammin JP-3 pipe
-NEW venom 1600mah rx pack charged once
-NEW Crimefighters mediums, molded foams on 83mm ae rims balanced
-NEW 16mm shocks with fresh oil
-2 jr 650 servos, i know, i know not top end but they are very fast and are plenty of servo for the set up.

GO Tech .21 5 port , 1 gallon of 20% blue thunder race and .5 gallon of 20% sidewinder fuel run through it . the con rod was replaced .5 gallon ago .as recomended. Still has lots of pinch. has the updated carb on it as well.

also had the buggy mounts installed so you can run a buggy body under the sc10 body to keep it clean

i shim all my hexes to keep the wheels tight and the wear down.

im pretty meticulous when i build something.i hope you guys can see that

so what im asking is

Whats it worth the way you see it minus tx and rx?(or i can include the 603fs)
or
as a roller?
or
Part it out?

sorry for the long post, i just cant seem to bring myself to post a vague description, i like who ever is interested in it to KNOW EXACTLY what they are getting. i dont lie and i dont beat around the bush, straight up!!YO

PICS(LOTS)

This belongs in the "for sale forum" not the offroad forum.

And you never get what you think it is worth when you sell used RC gear. Get used to the idea.

mainly because im frusterated with tuning,, and being life is pretty busy and it is for most people when i find the time to bust out to the track, its limited.

ie: last weekend i dropped my daughter off at a bday party had a couple hours to kill, called buddy . hey meet me at the track. OK! get there whip out 2 laps and then flame out!! wtf ok bring it in give it a tweak,, wouldnt change.. spent the next 1.5 hours trying to make the damn thing run.

im jjumping on the brushless wagon, figure if i had 2 hours to spare i may as well make it fun for at least half of it.
