Default AE Nitro Chassis I.D. please..........

I know it's AE, but what AE?? I bought three-plastic totes full of stuff and this was in there. It's never been ran, it's 10th, the springs are obivously wrong. Heck, the shocks don't even have oil in them.... Is it current, old, what???? I'm not a nitro-guy so I have no clue....Appreciate the help.

When you say early, how early??? Correct me if I'm wrong. I thought the first-gens had dog-bones??? This one has CV's...And believe me, the guy I bought this stuff from would not know the difference between a CVD and a bowl of cat food.........

they could have been updated to cvd's as you can still buy the sets brand new

and this is the very first version of the rc10gt that came out

As rcduder posted, they're MIP CVD's. And MIP CVD's have been around for a looong time.

Yours is one of the earlier RC10GT's, but not the earliest. The earliest RC10GT's still had white plastics.. Yours is the last model of the tub-style chassis.

I have no idea. I will say though, the blue engine mount and rear transmission brace are Trinity aftermarket pieces.

That's a very clean GT tub chassis with many hopups, between 1995....2000 maybe

Exactly like this one -> http://www.rcten.com/threads/pics-of...-black-tub.43/
