Default Help with ID please?

I'm looking to convert a nitro truggy/buggy/sct into brushless and found this as a roller. What is it and will it handle a decent brushless motor? The add says "Storm"

It looks like an HPI MT2 or similair, with a twisted rear shock tower!

I think actually upon some research it might me a Hellfire?? Would this truck handle brushless bashing, ie: diffs and shafts?

That's the one, sorry, Hellfire.
Was thinking back to my good old days of the MT2 18 SS!
Yeah I guess it should be ok - but they're not Savage / LST spec which are ideal for bashing!

I'm trying to weigh my pros and cons here. The trade will be a set of brand new Proline Roadhawgs that I sold the truck too. About $40 worth. You think a mild brushless kit will be ok or will it just shred everything? It says it's 8th scale so it'd be the 40x65+ mm brushless can.

I personally wouldn't waste you time on a hellfart. There's good reason they aren't around anymore.

+1. I also wouldn't waste my time on brushless. nitro cars are meant for NITRO.

you don't see hendrick motorsports trying to make a brushless cup car, do ya?

i'm just being a smartass, but the hellfire is definitely a pig....
