looks like the previous owner was "creative" with the shocks and the LR upper link. I'll need to be replacing those for sure.
It's not an Nitro 3 Evo+ with the .15 on the back of the engine. Definately a Nitro 3 with the shaft drive (unless it's a Super Nitro Rally...but that'd be pretty obvious...) and if the head is purple and the case of the engine is silver it sounds like the original Nitro 3. The Nitro 3 Evo came with the T-15 Engine in it but from the pictures I've seen there are no decals on the roto start housing. That can always change. However, the head on that .15 is grey, not purple and the case is black...so it looks very different from the .15fe.
The other telltail marking is the exhaust header. On the Nitro 3, it was this weird looking, blocky, silver thing. On all other models of the Nitro 3, it was a traditional round, black header.
Nitro 3 with .15fe engine:
Nitro 3 Evo with T-15 engine:
Regardless, chassis is basically identical on both.
