Without being too rude... Whatever someone is willing to pay. The most valuable is the electronics. Probably $100 for the package.

TC4s aren't valuable. Call it $50. The electronics, considering they are used, are worth half what you paid for them, maybe ....if they newer then a year old. If they are older than a year... they might be worth less. Add it all up, and there you go... your max price for the car. Now... typically combinations of things go for less than the sum of their parts, so you might need to subtract another $50 off the top once all added up.

The real answer is..."whatever somebody is willing to pay".

Your best bet is to sell it at a track. Get what you can for it for a VTA car.
