Take a few hours and break it down and thoroughly clean it, and you'll easily get yourself an extra 30-40 bucks. Clean up that antenna wire, rebuild the shocks etc. and I'm sure it will sell quicker as well.

Honestly, sit down and break down roughly what you have invested in it. Take that price and chop it in half, and use that as a starting point.

Too often I see stuff listed in which people ask way too much money and never sell the items, and the simple reason is that they're asking way too much. Selling used vehicles, RC or otherwise, especially those with upgrades is being lucky enough to find a buyer that has to have your vehicle. More often than not people aren't that lucky. The reality is that you've upgraded the vehicle for your interest and your taste and chances are slim that people will want to pay for what you've invested to get it how you like it, as it's cheaper in many cases to buy a new one and pick out their own upgrades than it is to buy something that got some miles on it. SO when trying to sell it don't really factor in your upgrades, but instead use them as tools to attract and lure buyers (buy my truck, but here's what extras you get for free).

Stating that it's a year old means little, as just like a newer real car that's a year old a buyer wants to know how many miles it has on it -- 12,000 or 100,000 is a huge difference. But really, a year old RC truck is by all rights considered old as if most likely has a lot of time, battery packs, and miles on it.

taking half of what's been spent I think would be optimistic in this case

all the aftermarket and spare parts get far less than half back


a new VXL pede can be had for about $260 or so,

if you get an offer north of $200 on yours I'd be very surprised, and would actually expect a sale price of about $150 or so
