Need help with electric gearbox ID...

I have no idea what it is, but it's not an Associated Stealth like the seller described. Anyone have any idea what this is?

Kinda has a Kyosho feel to the parts quality. It's NOT new or smooth, whatever it is...

Yeah, the seller was "told" it was a B3 Stealth, and had been using it in a sprint car (well, then I guess he shouldn't have called it new, either). He didn't know and has offered me a refund. I guess I shouldn't have gambled on fuzzy, out-of-focus, bad photos.


Sooooo... anyone have a spare B2/T2/B3/T3 gearbox lying around that they'd like to sell me?

Looks similar to like an Associated tranny.

Yah, I thought the same thing when I saw it in the photos provided. I guess the Duratrax cars are direct rip-offs of Losi and Associated designs, with sub-quality parts to keep the prices down. It's really low end stuff, but for cheap RTR off road electric cars, it's not a bad market to have all to yourself.
