Default Vintage Mugen Buggy Identification Help

Vintage Mugen Buggy
Hello,
Has anyone got any helpful ideas what Model this 4WD Mugen Nitro Buggy is.
A mate bought a couple a fair while ago via phone calls to the USof A before the internet - they freaked out about his accent and how far away he was.
It has MUGEN stamped in to the aluminium chassis
a reverse mount .21ci Nitro Engine
shaft drive
plastic spur gear
centrifical clutch.

I know what it is NOT, so far it is not a:
Bulldog
Bulldog II
Manx

Any help is appreciated guys.

Hiya Neil,

This truck pre-dates the athlete. it is a stadium truck.

The mugen chronology is as follows:
mugen sport
mugen super sport
mugen stadium truck (based on mugen sport chassis)
mugen athlete
mugen mbx4
mugen mbx4rr
mugen mbx5
mugen mbx5 prospec
mugen mbx5r
mugen mbx6

it's a keeper! the pre-cursor to today's truggies. kyosho had a similar truck based on the original inferno chassis.

I am looking for parts to rebuild my super sport, i need a new bodyshell amongst other things...

That is the mugen stadium truck (based on mugen sport chassis). It had a Toyota truck body on it. I have one at home as well.

Talking Forgot one

I know this is really late, but, I think one Mugen off the top of my head that was forgotten.

The Mugen MBX4-XR
