Ultimately "worth" is your decision. I like the tire and wheel combo on it.

If you want a fast S Maxx I would. They come new with a 2.5 which is a .15 and you get the radio and bodies also. Looks good, make sure to run it first till it up to temp and shut it down and make sure it fires right back up right away.

tough call, $250 seems kind of high. Check ebay for a t-maxx 2.5 nib around $300. With this hobby new is almost always a better bet. $50 more and 1/2 the headache. Plus if you have to fix things it could get expensive.

That's not a bad price.
but like said above whether its "worth" it is completely up to you.

Run it like stated to make sure the motor is not fried and so you can check the suspinsion and such and you should be good. Like stated before more motor, bodies and a radio for 175 . You should be good.
