looks like a 85 tamiya frog. parts may be difficult to get parts though, its not good for racing but bashing around is ok. stick with a mild motor though cause thats more than enough to make it go fast.

No way. That's gotta be a Losi. They like the heavier chassis layouts.

not really, the re-release of the Subaru Brat means you can get 99% of the parts on that car.
