Looks like mostly AE pan car parts to me. No idea on the rear suspension arm and hubs though. If I has to guess it would be a US car to keep it all imperial so I'll say TC3/TC4

The motor mount(s) are AE, 12L. The sus. arms, axel carriers and mounts are Traxxas Street Sport. The diff is also Traxxas- TCP ball. The dog bones and axels are Tamiya. The front end is AE pan. It's a little on the heavy side at 45oz. The body is yet to be painted(AE Nissan GTP). That will probably bring the weight up to 47oz. Don

when building DIY cars, i find the steering needs to be laser cut (then it helps to be the Design technology teacher's pet)
he tranny is also hard, as it needs to be precision engineered, although you can get away without having a tranny or even a diff! (i have on my 1/16th ) at the moment i'm on my way to rebuilding an old 1/14th tc i have, as it has a really low centre of gravity (the cells are right at the bottom), although it has to be powered by AA cells (no problem when you can get 2500mah nimh's for 50p each .
