Default Any body Know or remember this vehicle

Trying to find out the answer to this one. In the earily 80's (81-82) there was some experimental or commercial dirt oval buggies. The most significant feature that I remember was the chain drive on the nitro 09 or 10 OS pullstart motor. The scale was approx 1/10th, the chain was a wire type and I don't remember there being any rear suspension.
I have read about guys experimenting with electric buggies converting them to nitro and using a chain drive, but I think this might have been a commercial conversion. The only one that I ever saw had a dirt oval body without a huge wing.

Has anyone ever heard of this or remember anything about them better yet any pictures??
