Default Help!!

Hi,

I am new to this forum but it seemed like a prime place to get some help identifying a model I am interested in buying as a 'fixer-upper'

Can anyone give me a guess as to what it is?

Thanks in advance,

Simon

Your post makes no sense. Please re-title the item and edit your post to include some sensible information.

Default Sorry everyone

No accounting for out and out stupidity! I meant to attach the following photo but forgot. It isn't much to go on but it may mean something to someone.

It is a stadium truck of some kind and fitted with a 15ZX engine. Shocks are oil filled.

Apologies to all those who saw the incomplete post.

Haha whoa! I've never seen one of those before.

If the chassis wasn't blue, I'd say an old Kyosho Outrage maybe?

Looks to narrow for a ST looks more like a buggy or a really old ST.

and is that a carbon fiber sticker on the head?

Default I'm guessing ...

... from the pic that it is a Thunder Tiger or maybe CEN ... I couldn't find anything definite (using Google) though...

I had the thunder tiger Pro GT when I was in ND, doesn't look like that. ( you can see a pic of it on www.ultrahot.com in the reader's ride section ).

I checked out this site:

http://www.towerhobbies.com/products/towc0055.html

Other than some differences in parts as the kit may be older model, it really looks close to me.

Yep, I think it is an older ST-15...

See some ST-15 pics here:

ST-15 Forum @ radiocontrolzone.com:

I think this is the 'real' manufacturer of the ST-15 kit:
