    JP Eagle R9s old nitro engine - value?

    Hello I have come across this JP Eagle R9.s engine and am wondering what a price would be. I can't find much info online other than threads made pre 2009. I think I am going to sell it with the whole car, which I also don't know what it is. I assume serpent vector. Thanks for your time.

    Kyosho gxr28 exhaust manifold options?
