The Kyosho/Cox Scorpion could be worth some decent money. Before the RC10, the king of the track was the Scorpion. These are fairly rare from what I see. Historically, the Cox Scorpion is quite significant. I'll bet a nice condition Scorpion could pull in between $500-1000 if you find the right collector. The offroad forum may be a better place for this post.

Good Luck,

take some pictures, and post them. The scorpions could be worth money, but only cars that are NIB would go for $1000 if that from what I have seen. $200-$300 might be more correct.
