    Your going to limit your self to used for something decent. This isn't bad but I usually see extremely over priced RC cars on Craigslist. People seem to think their cars are worth the same amount as the original asking price after beating the shit out of them. I would make sure there is no issues.

    What good is getting a Slash for $150 only to find out your stuck putting another hundred or so in it when you could have gotten a new 2wd for under $250.

    Raise the price about $100 and our answers might not be hesitated. The Traxxas Bandit is good. The Traxxas Slash is good.

    I have a 2wd slash. I bought the Brushed version at towerhobbies for $230 with a $20 off coupon. I have a brushless sytem in it now. I am really impressed with the 2wd slash. It's a tough RC. I put mine thru alot of bashing and hitting big jumps and it's held up great. Plus lots of companies make parts for Traxxas RCs.

    search ebay for roller chassis's and you should be able to get a slash or rustler for about 50 bucks if your willing to part it together you can build one hell of a traxxas vehicle for about 150-200 just get your electronics from hobby king servo off either ebay or hobbypartz their solar servos are freaking awesome a little liquid electrical tape and poof water proof and if your still worried about it add some dielectric grease to the board inside the servo plus a couple of them are faster and stronger than the traxxas ones and most of the time they go for about 13-16$... I just built a stock xl-5 slash with the TQI remote and a raptor xflow body for 170$ for my nephew and a set of old tires
