Default Help Identifing This 1/8 Mystery Clone

So I ended up with a chassis from a friend and neither of us have any idea what brand and model it is. Maybe someone can help

I'm to new to the forum to post pics so I had to ninja the link


I thought it might be a kyosho 7.5 clone BUT it uses a pivot ball front with dropped lower arms as you can see in the pic.

Yeah I noticed that too, the guy had two different brands of rear hubs on the back.

Ok it's looking like a Redcat Hurricane XP. And it needs a bunch of tlc So far it looks like
  • Hinge pins
  • Springs that go between the lower front arms and the rear mounts along the hinge pins -> I guess for durability
  • Front Shocks
  • Front lower arm mount
  • Front lower arm mount bushings
  • Rear Hubs

This is going to be fun

Yeah I don't know. Looks Like I could get everything I need for $30.

This is just a loaner buggy for my friends so they have something to run if they want to go to the track with me.

Yeah it is a Redcat Hurrincane XP. Thanks everyone for the help. I decided to turn it into a cheap GT on-road car for club racing.
