Went and picked it up, not actually mailed to me, which is how I usually get this kind of stuff.
It's from an ad on Craig's; the guy said he had 4 boxes of RC stuff that he just wanted gone. Someone gave it all to him, and he had no interest in any of it.
Went and checked it out, it was about half toy grade, and half hobby grade. Dude said he only had one of the toy grade ones running, that's as far as he felt like messing with it.
Most of the haul is here in the picture:

Everything was all dumped together, no remotes with their prospective vehicles, etc. I spent a little time matching things together, and so far, every one of them works. As for the toy grade, a few are just generic Chinese things, like $15 when new. Those will probably just go to Goodwill. There were a few nicer toy grade ones, will probably give these to kids I know, or maybe my kids. My son particularly likes the hovercraft (not shown - there was still another big box to be unloaded from my car when I took the picture) - even though toy grade, that one is almost $100 new, and it's kinda cool. 2 cars are just like XMods, but not labeled as such, so probably generic copies.
Anyway, the good stuff was in the bottom of the boxes. There were 4 4-wheel drive 1/18 electrics. Two are Xray M18, one of which has a Castle Mamba Competition X ESC and motor (8,000kV). The other 2 are buggies, I haven't taken the time to ID them yet. There was also a Novak T-4, some Novak stickers I didn't have, what appear to be used JRXT wheels and tires, 6 or so transmitters, including a Futaba Magnum Sport, JR, and 2PL, and a few brushed motors, including a pink Monster Jr. Also several ziplock bags of parts and tires, which I am guessing are for the Xray cars, without further checking.

I didn't spend much time inspecting the contents before I bought it. In the bottom of a couple boxes, I saw what I took at the time to be a handful of Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars. Nope, there were 5 ZipZaps, with controllers and extra parts and motors, and 4 more similar ones (1 of them a motorcycle) that are not marked with a brand, but have the same type of charging connection.
All of this was $50... a nice deal - some cool stuff for me, and some fun stuff for the kids!
:D

50 bucks? Wow, what a steal! It pays to check CL.
Oh, you forgot to mention the (stolen?) Wal-Mart basket. :lol:

I know, right? I worked at the 'Mart many years ago, so yes, that was amusing.

Very nice score. It looks like it was only street driven?

Two pairs of Pro-line Champion tyres , these seem to be getting a bit scarce , have they stopped making them along with the RC10 classic ?
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.

Trailing arm/Lethal Weapon trans drilled chassis plates from Factory Works and some thick wall aluminum tubing from GRAINGER.The natural color plate will be my "template" so the planning/mock up stage doesn't scratch up the black, final build plate.

Going to build a "Tube Cage" :mrgreen:
