Default What buggy is this?

hello

I am just wondering if anyone will know what make/model this buggy is? I have now repaired it to the best of my ability but the front is still heavily damaged and the spur gear is extreamly warn

It is a 1/8 scale
Nitro
The engine mounts with the pull start towards the rear wheels and the pinion gear towards the front (as you can tell, I am normaly a electric runner)
A Single spur gear in the center with a center diff


Thanks for the help

Not sure exactly what model it is, but it looks like an older OFNA chassis or an XTM.

You will need to put more pictures up, with the broken parts too. Does look like a ofna.

ok thanks guys, I will take a few photo's tonight,

I managed to build it fully (after rebending some parts) and the band new reciver failed on me after 10 mins, so now the whole front end it broken (again)

Should have gone with the 2.7ghz rather than 27mhz

hello,

Here is some more pics:




EDIT: yes the spur gear is warn to almost nothing, this was like this befor i got it, and the engine cog is the wrong tooth (I think)

I have a spair, but after changing the engine to the 25 with a different toothed gear it doesnt seem to be doing any (more) damage to the spur


I got given this by a freind who was clearing his garage, along with a (fully working) TGS.

As my TT-01 or the TGS are not off roaders i would want to try and repair this rather than spending 250 on the cheapest off roader at my local hobby shop, what i cant afford

It looks like a 69' Skippybanger 4th gen neo rocketbuggy. They kicked major @ss back in the day.

If it is a OFNA its a older one, google robinson racing they might have a metal gear to replace that plastic one.

ok

As it needs a whole front end fixing a new spur and TBH if other parts fail aswell it would be ALMOST impossable to find streat on replacements,

Il have a closer look at the specs of the hobby shops buggy,
if i dont like it, il have a look arund ebat for a hpi or thundertiger, as i know where i can get parts from.

Thanks for the help guys
