Worth reviving 30 year old RC10?

Is it worth getting a new control system and battery pack for a ~30 year old RC10 vs getting something that sells for $75 today? Are there modern control systems that will hook up to vintage steering gear? I assume modern control systems can drive the motor.

Is it one of the aluminum chassis buggies? If so, very cool. A buddy built up his old "graphite" RC10 about six or seven years ago using all new parts. I think it required a later diff to make it work, but I'm not sure.

Watch him go!!! link
