Pipe, wing mount and wing, body. Maybe new tires.
That's all that I see.
Price, its pretty good if the engine runs. I would ask for a picture of the bottom of the chassis and Also, 1.0 or 2.0.

that box will work fine, depending on what size flywheel is on it, need a 34mm flywheel to use with that box. you will be able to tell if the guy sends you a good picture of bottom chassis, is a good price, looks like a 2.0 from what i can see, cant really see the radio box to good. i would ask him for clearer pictures.

Do you even have a 2.0 truggy? The chassis is definitely not the 2.0 RTR or race roller chassis. The wheelbase is way too short.

I wouldnt consider that to be a deal. Just because an engine has 1 gallon on it does not mean it's in good shape.

This would be my first Truggy and Losi. I happen to have a few extra parts like pipe and servos so it seems like it would work out good for me. I don't mind projects to end up with a quality product.
That's how I built my last AR.

He responded to a quick email. Waiting for a reply to see when and where he's available. Asked him the 2.0 question and for a pic of underside too.

Looks like the TLR tuned flex chassis.

Servos, exhaust, wing etc...the chassis runs almost 100 bucks if it is the tuned flex. 150 is not a bad deal on it as you can buy oem parts from stripped down RTR's on ebay for dirt cheap.

Looks to be a 8ight t 1.0 version seems to be in good condition motor would be worth 80-90 bucks on the street.

more than 80-90 bucks for sure..
You have a good deal (base on the motor is still in good working order) if you have parts already. The body and wing and the hardware are not cheap.

I dont think that is a tune flex chassis.

Gonna go get it tonight. Talked to him on the phone. Sounds like a cool dude. Said he bought a new 2.0 for racing. He bought this new back when the 2.0's first came out.
