It's a truck that my brother had that I took over when we were kids. It was pretty good on speed and was super tough and rhe best thing I remember was the range. I was able to drive it all the way to my rc buddy tommys house which was well past the 200-300 ft range. I'm glad they don't have the following of tyco cars because if anyone else wanted that truck as bad as I do the thing would go for more than I can afford.

Yup I'm the high bidder on that one. I also bought one that was listed about 20 minutes after that one with buy it now.. I wish the seller would have cleaned it up but none do but me. I just got a nikko brat off ebay and looked rough in the auction and when I got it but me and my wet rag made the thing look almost new. that thing is coming from Alaska so granted I win it I'm going to have to wait quite a while for it to get here.

Didn't win it. If It popped up a month later I could have paid that much for it but I had 100 and it went for 81+20 shipping so missed it by a dollar. I noticed what looked like a crack in the control arm so I wasn't going to be paying that much for something that really looked like it was broken.

body is beat up and every single screw on the thing is rusty but the tires cleaned up looking like new. wheelies like if it was new on carpet.

this is why i didn't bid any higher for that other raider. looks like there is a crack in the control arm that was not memtioned in the description. I'm pretty sure i'm the only one who noticed and i noticed it after i put in an 80 dollar bid. good thing someone beat me with 81 so i could get out of it because with that crack i woul have paid maybe 40 for it.

Youve got the body and wheels so thats most important. If you need control arms there are a lot different cars on that chassis. I think anything that uses that style of wheel is the same. If not super glue should get you by for a while
More R/C cars than your local hobby shop

Old school is the only way to go

I think now my raider will be a shelf queen from now on and nothing left to search for so going to concentrate on building a fleet of Traxxas trucks. Every time I sell a truck I get kids and adults with a barrage of questions from newbies so I was thinking of holding kinda like a clinic that teaches you what needs to be known when picking out an rc plus let's then try it out so they don't get one and decide its not for them after going 250+ into it.

I have only seen 3 on ebay one that was untested with no radio that went for 20.50 and the one that was rtr that went for 81 and the one I got that was unntested with radio for 35. The one I got may not have went for that much but I wanted it sooner so I talked the seller into putting a buy it now for 35. I didn't care if it worked or not since I have a brat I was fully willing to gut in order to have the raider run but it runs fine as it is fortunately. If I ever find a new in box one I think I'm still willing to throw around 250 at it.

It's a ton of fun. I wish ny wife would hold the camera so I can get better and longer footage. It's pretty fast but I remember it being faster but then again the last time I ran my brother's old one I was maybe 15 at the oldest before it completely stopped working. The eliminator and twin turbo hopper I had were faster hands down but I remember always getting smashed by my neighbors Harley truck and fx-4.
