    I really like my XL it's a lot more stable than the X. As for what to look for & how much to pay? I'd look for the usual signs of wear & tear as well as cleanliness. A good sign of how the previous owner took care of his equipment is usually evident in how clean it is! As for price, try and figure the age of the vehicle, typically purple hardware = older savage. The orange hardware is indicative of a newer savage. Also check on eBay and see what similar Riggs are selling for. RTR (ready to run) I'd say $200.00 is a good starting point. I'll probably catch flack for the above mentioned price but, buying used RC stuff can be risky. Pic's of this truck would help us out a lot.

    That's some pretty steep shipping charges. I would be willing to wager that the price is going to go up to 180-230 with an hour left. Place your bid wisely!

    As with any used vehicle, a complete teardown and inspection will benefit you once you get the rig.....
    Always a good idea to teardown the :ercm: and do a thorough cleaning and seal just to be sure....

    104 is great, that cat jacked the shipping charges just to snake extra cash. Anyway, good buy! I hope it runs like a raped ape!!!
