Yep - as Chris says.
Also check all the electrics are working ( windows,mirrors etc etc). Also the obvious ones like tyres,exhaust etc.

Check wheels for signs of damage due to kerbing - if they are damaged could also mean tracking/steering is out.

Take car for a decent run, make sure temp gauge rises and doesn't overheat, check no excessive smoke ( esp white/blue smoke) from exhaust.

If buying privately a HPI check is also worth it, you don't want to end up buying a stolen or written off vehicle.
