I have a Yokomo GT-4 and a first generation Traxxas TMAXX that I haven't used in quite some time. Both cars worked just fine the last time I ran them, which was during the summer. They could both use a nice bath as well.
The TMAXX has Traxxas' older pro .15 engine. The engine is fairly new, only run a few tanks through it after it's initial break-in period (my dad blew the original because he didn't know how to break it in..). Everything was in 100% working order as of summer 2008; do note that the reverse on these trucks never worked 100%, and this truck is no exception, sometimes it does work, sometimes it doesn't.
The Yokomo GT-4 was (during it's time), one of the best performing RTR cars around. It's acceleration, top speed, and handling were top notch right out of the box. Top speed of 60+ MPH (which it reaches in just a few seconds), two gears, four wheel drive. This car has seen very little use (although you couldn't tell by the body...), maybe a total of 15-20 tanks of fuel, including the ~8 for break-in. I've just never had the room to really run it. It requires a very smooth, flat road, any bumps and it is a disaster waiting to happen. The last time I drove it, I flipped it (the one and only time...) causing the damage you see in the pictures. One body mount snapped off, the spoiler came off the body, and the front of the body broke a bit. I hit a bump about 1/4" in the road at ~30MPH and the car just lost control and flipped/slid for a while. Other than cosmetic damages, it is in 100% working order.
I'd like to get around $200 or best reasonable offer for each car; the TMAXX was ~$450 new and the GT4 was ~$500 new. The first car to sell (or if someone buys both) will come with a glo-plug ignitor, a little bit of extra fuel I have and some random screws, clips and other misc parts I have laying around.
I'd prefer not to ship them, but if someone shows a lot of interest and we can't meet up, I will ship at buyers expense. Willing to drive ~1 hour to meet half way.
