Default Are the old Team Associated 1/8 nitros worth getting?

I was just wondering, are the old 1/8 nitro onroads from Team Associated (like the RC200, RC250, RC300, 2wd direct drive) worh to buy if the price is cheap?
I got a deal on a RC250 (I think..) with an OPS .21 engine...

Not unless you fancy moving to France. They still have a very dominate class for these cars called Classique. If the manufactures would bring this class back it would help boost the 1:8th 4WD class more. France has a great following of 1:8th because of this class.

Can someone please tell me if there are websites that's related to "Classique" class 1/8? and if there is a good source to get some of these "classique" machines?

If possible, I would like to buy back all Associated 1/8 from RC100 to RC 500 4wd, and especially Deltas. The first 1/8 car I had was the RC200, back then I could not afford a Delta 1/8. Too bad Delta went out of business before I could afford one....

If you want a vintage RC, the RC 500 would be a better choice.
Out of the choices that you gave, the RC 300 would be the better out of the list.
