Default Picked up TA RC8.2 Nitro

I picked it up for $50 underside of chassis is super clean as well as the motor as there's no scratches on it either. Only issue is that the pull starter and one way bearing are missing, and this is an issue as there basically NLA. So I am going to acquire a starter box if I can't locate parts. What other things should I look for as this is my first 1/8 Buggy? I'm not new to Nitro's the motor seems good and has good compression. Did I over pay or does it seem like a good buy if I can get it running.

Thanks in advance.

For $50 for a roller with engine seems a very good deal. Besides getting a started box and a back plate for the current engine, maybe take the car apart and see what needs to be replaced. Diff fluids, shock fluids, any binding, bearings, etc.
