Yes it was real ,it was for the RC10"T" ,and it was chassis,and back end with a rear arm setup like no other.
It was used to some success here in Australia.
I think that not long after its release the T2 was born and the parts were no longer of any use.
No matter how fast you are or think you are... Remember you were new to RC once, so help out where you can.
Everyone has to start somewhere.
