That is a very old Caster ZX-1R RTR buggy. I know its RTR because of the center driveshafts are dogbones and not CVD's. It also has the really old small bore shocks on it. Those may need some tweaking. With some upgrades it can be a really good machine. Dont judge this buggy as how Caster is now. There is a HUGE night and day difference between what you have and what is out now. If you have any questions about it let me know. Also if you can do one favor. Take a picture of the front of the bulkhead. I would like to see which one it has. Depending on how old this is it may need new ring and pinions.

haha finally someone that knows what this thing is haha. Well I'm just gonna do an E conversion on it, but Caster's website sucks and cant order from em either. Its basically new though lol. Ya I was gonna switch to some big bores lol but i got it local and super cheap ($40) and it was almost rtr minus servos,fuel,tx,rx. So i cant complain lol. Does anyone have parts for this thing hahaha.

also, you cannot buy from casterracing.com as that is the international information site. Casterracingusa has a shopping cart, as does Holeshothobbies and Stormer.

The E conversion is inexpensive and easy. Just order the Caster parts for the E. (Which, BTW, and nicer and better engineered than any of the conversions I have seen.) IIRC there is a conversion kit- Chassis, motor mount, radio trays, diff top plate, esc mount, servo tray, receiver box. I think that's about it. Even with buying the chassis as part of the kit it ends up costing about the same as a generic conversion kit!!!

Ask Hakmazter for the part number to order.
