You have to scroll, you'll see a Ultima timeline.

Apparently you have an ultima, first generation. But you front arms don't look like they are stock. Not sure.

You may find ultima experts on www.rc10.com, this is a great board for vintage in general, and vintage EP offroad in particular.

Yup, first gen Ultima and one of my favorite 2wd buggies of all time. Looks like it may have a set of Andy's arms up front and is missing the top plate. Somebody upgraded it with Option House shocks as well. I've been keeping an eye on ebay for something exactly like that...

I had one and the chassis is not good for sure. Mine bent after a few runs back in the day I kept just bending it back since I didn't have the money to buy new parts back then. It was the competition for the RC10 at the time!

Yeah, you either upgraded to the Option House chassis or Composite Craft graphite chassis if you were racing. It was a very competitive car at our local tracks.

Ah yes the original Ultima series cars. I agree with someone else
and those front Arms probably came off a different vechicle.
