Default Dropped at my doorstep, what now?

My little brother left this with me when he came down for Christmas. It's an original rock buster with the 4ws option. We put this together in January of '04 when he still lived in Alaska and he drove it around the house a few times and put it up. I don't know anything about these so I'm asking you guys if there is any worth to this unit. Not necessarily money, but building. Body has not even been trimmed all the way and the protective film is still on it.

I have one of these...my son gave it to me...I tore it all down to the axels. Thought about using the axels for a scaler build...even has the same servo, never heard of that one before (3003). Seems pretty torque-y though

This servo is Futaba's standard servo that they used to give away with just about all their old legacy 75mhz and 27mhz systems.

I have no idea if they still offer them as I haven't paid attention to any "low torque" servos in a long time.

change the chassis to a SCX10 or old K2 and you will have a nice scaler.
