Default what truggy is this?

my friend got it for $40. it doesnt run. it seems like the motor doesnt have hardly any compression.

Default truggy

It almost looks like a kyosho str without the side guards. Maybe the us spec edition. Did it come with a body??

Didn't notice that till you said something, that thing is tiny. I have to agree, it looks like a 1/10th scale, but that might be just the picture. I kind of remember something that looks like that, but i can't think of the name.

It is not a Kyosho, some "chinese copy" look at the details closely.

its definitely 1/8 scale. its huge haha
ill get some more pics of the motor for you guys.

the motor says protech with 10805 below it. you will see it in pics.

the only thing i can find about protech, at all, is it was in a Yada Truggy. i cant find much about it though. the control arms and a few other things look different. on this truck, they appear to be stock, but its hard to say.
i cant find good any pics of a Yada to really be able to tell

I believe that is a Toki built engine......if that is indeed what it is then it is not worth the fuel to put in it !

It looks like that would be the case specially since someone decided to put a small block engine on a FAT Over Weight Truggy...
