No... Your lucky to get 400 for all that. Nothing there is really that desirable.

The answer is NO... that's not a good deal.

Slash 4wd you can usually find these used for about $200 RTR

Blitz is worth about $80 max, the radio is pretty much a throw in.

The two thunder power batteries are worth about $65

The charger is about $45 used

Both pairs of beadlocks are worth about $35

Tools, about $30

Havoc pro 17.5 combo about $80-$90 used

That's $535 if you bought all those things separate on here and I'm being VERY generous on those prices even though I have no idea of the actual condition. This is still not a good deal to me...

Even being extra generous and adding $50 for the Airtronics radio that's still only $585. Making it a really poor deal for you but a great deal for the seller.

while i agree the package deal isnt worth 700.
You are wrong about prices however.

I dont know....
A clean Slash Ult. you cannot buy for $200! If you can....Ive never seen one! I would say more like $300 RTR
The Blitz with the decent brushless in good shape could be sold for $200-$225
The lipos could be about $75 for the two I see. A Thunderpower 40c 2s cannot be bought for $25-$30!
Charger $50
Airtronics $70
Tools and oils and other odds and ends $50

Its worth more than $400! That's a real low-ball price there.
I want to see the prices that are quoted above. You "might" be able to get them prices on a really lucky day. You can grab up some stuff really cheap sometimes. But the avg. price thay sell for are a bit more than what quoted above. Im on here reading forums everyday.
I think the first est. was a little low. $700 is a little high if your buying it all at once. I think $600 would be a bit more of a fair price.

FTSC10: How so... add your corrections to what you you think the prices should be instead of just saying they're not right, otherwise your post is completely worthless.

As most everyone knows used stuff is worth about 50% of what it was new.

I've seen plenty of Slash's 4x4 go used for about $200-$250 in excellent condition.

Nope. $350 at most. The bodies look beat up, no telling what's wrong with the trucks themselves. Used tires and RTR radios are worthless.

LOL, the blitz is defiantly worth more than $80 bucks. yes $700 is a little high but is worth a lot more than $400 and $350 like previous people have said.

I don't really see how, it sounds like a stock blitz... Figure stock SC10 and Blitz rollers sell all day long for about $80-$100

If it were an ESE it would definitely fetch more. A stock Blitz retails for $189!

I factored the ESC and motor separate... The esc and motor combo is only $180 brand new.

If both of these trucks had a bunch of upgrade parts I could see them fetching more money. From the little we can see they don't look like they've been taken care of that well.

All of this stuff was only about $1200 brand new...

In the end your stuff is only worth what people are willing to pay for it.
