Default What vehicle is this?

Someone at my track brought this 4WD car to me and asked me what it was. I been in this hobby for 14+ years but didn't really know. It is 4WD, belt driven, it's a Kyosho, I'd guess from the early 90s or late, late 80's. I am not familiar with nitro off road cars from that era. He got it through a trade and it has hardly been run it's entire life. It also has an OS engine, if that helps. Here is a picture and I have a few more but I'm posting a couple. Thanks for any and all help.

Yes, that's a Kyosho. Could be a nitro Optima.

Yeah, I know it's a Kyosho ...looks kinda like the Rampage I used to have but it was a truck and it was 2wd...Didn't know they made a nitro optima, I was thinking of an Inferno but prolly not that either. Thanks!

Back in the mid-late 80's the 1/10 4WD electric buggy was called the Optima, and that just looks like a Nitro version of that.

I think it's called the "Stinger".

That car is about as old as I am!

It is called a Stinger Mk1 if it is chain driven. Then they had a Stinger MkII which was belt driven. Always wanted one of those...
