Questions?? Need buying advice!

Hey guys!
I've been looking forward to buy a new RC Buggie, now I've got my eyes set on one, however I dont know how much should I pay for it here you have some info (Copy paste of the post) :
Title: OFNA Ultra MBX Competition Radio Controlled Car - complete with extra parts See original listing

Description:
When I bought it it costed me 650USD
Barely used gas powered car.
New engine, upgraded pipe.
controller and starter

Started it up recently, but have not driven in a while.
Everything works.

Dirt and street tires included.
Tools and copy of manual
Also, in the title it says its supposed to be the competition vesion, however the body tells me it isnt, can you help me identify it? (The model number is the same for both of them so...

How much would you pay for it, assuming what you see on the pictures is what you get.

Note: I'm not into RC racing, so Whatever I end up buying is just for bashing and maybe racing with some friends. Obviously the better & cheaper the best hahaha

you can get a version of this car new for $300. If you want a good rtr ⅛ nitro buggy, jq rtr 400 and you are done.
cheap ofna buggy, I would give them maybe 120. (wouldn't buy in the first place) Its not worth much of anything really.

Thank you for your POV Panda! Will keep it in mind, yet I'm waiting to see what others have to say...

maybe... it really looks like a crappy car.

If you are going really budget, a new lx2 is 300 dollars.

Wow I'm glad I asked you guys about it, otherwise probably I would have had paid at least 130 for it. The bidding was at 135 when the auction paused, so I guess it could have had reached 150 without problems.

Does anyone disagree with what has been stated above, do you have any other opinion?

Not even for bashing? I'm not into RC racing, I'm on the real thing but not RC. I just want it for bashing for sometime, I missed to point that out in the main post.

Or is it that crappy, even for bashing?

Is there anything fairly decent, in good condition and fun I could buy for $160 max?
I really don't need it to compete (although the faster the greater).

I wouldn't care if it's used as long as it has a long life to live left.
