I need more pictures..
I haven't seen all the FG vehicles in the new FF line yet. It could be fg though as their trying to lower prices and distance themselves from some older vehicles,so new designs for FF line.
It looks more like a smartech or similar version.
Other makers have been making older fg parts and vehicles, I don't know if patent expired or what but I've seen several "New" old parts.
Mad Max is selling repo copies of aluminum fg parts and rovan made the BMS monster truck copy vehicles that were pulled.
Laughterbacher also makes fg parts, they contacted me about buying a new comp/Evo chassis.

I'm partial to the baja bug because the Tamiya Sand Scorcher was my first rc. So I put on my google fu black belt and went searching. From what I can tell it is a FG Marder Buggy with an ABS undertray and beetle body.

About the sixth one down, listed as Marder Beetle. Only shows the undertray, no body.

That rig looks minty fresh. What's the sell price?
I don't know yet for the price the guy who's selling it want me to make him an offer. Never ran, always shelf and he got everything needed to make it a monster truck conversion.

How much would you pay for this ?o_O

Ok this guy have a bunch of new and shelf 1/5 haha. What you think about this one too ? Look like a mcd v4 mt competition right ?

HOW MUCH DOES BOT RIGS WORTH AHAHAHAH

After finding out it was a Marder Beetle, it was still hard to find links of the Beetle. I bet the body is as rare as rocking horse nuts. I can't bring myself to buy things to display on a shelf so I'd have to consider parts availability, especially the body. The monster truck conversion might be fun. Not something that would drive the purchase for me.

I guess I would offer $500 to start the negotiation.
