The top deck is snapped, the spur gear assembly and gear is missing, bent body posts etc... it looks beaten up.

Parts are hard to get for it (its a HPI RS4 Rally), but it has some value when its complete and in good condition. Its just a case of finding those parts new again, because virtually no shops will have them on the shelves.

A new transmitter wouldn't be hard to use with a new receiver as long as you use the right crystals and stick to the proper frequency (27mhz transmitter with 27mhz receiver and crystals etc).
