Thank you for the fast accurate reply! 3 more questions for whoever is willing to entertain me:
1 - I have several stock motors/fuel tanks/pipes/etc pulled from very similar looking OFNA Hyper 7 and up buggies (Mac Star 28 I believe). Would that possibly be a drop in setup? I can tell the clutch bells and center diffs are different. The rest of the layout seems almost identical.
2 - Do you see the giant hole drilled in the chassis under where the pullstart would be? Why on earth would someone do that? I also received a Losi 8ight from the same guy with a similar large ugly hole drilled in the chassis. He wasn't the sharpest knife in the block.
3 - In your opinion: Should I restore this rolling chassis? Or part it out? Or just throw a brushless setup in it? I'm not trying to get rich, just trying to put this car back out into the world in a state someone will enjoy it. The only broken parts I noticed in my quick review were broken teeth on the plastic center diff gears. If the answer to #1 is yes, I have all the parts to bring back to life as a nitro. If not, I already have an appropriate brushless setup.
Note: the grayish soot covering the top of the car seems to be overspray from the body I received with it. It's silver, and I guess the guy held the body over the car while spraying on the paint. Like I said in #2, not a very bright guy.
