Yup, thats an early Losi nitrobuggy. Early friction damper suspension.

Back in the good olde days when Losi built cars that last. If you look closely you can see that it's the ancestor of the 8ight. It even has the same broken throttle servo just like todays 8ights.

The resemblance is uncanny!





You don't happen to have it's body? The ABS body that car came with if its the car I'm thinking of is collectable.

Looks similar to the Frog/Brat transmission though they were usually gray. I believe the Lunchbox/Midnight Pumpkin ran the same trans and I believe they were black.
