Default Please help me identify buggy

Hello, i recently acquired this buggy but am not 100% sure what it is. looks to be a competition tamiya buggy from 10+ years ago. Any help on the model would be very much appreciated

I really want to say that's a DF-01 chassis, but wait and see if others can confirm it.

Thanks for the reply.
I am clueless on off road, i'll have a look at some df 01 based cars and see if it is. Some parts look similar to that of a ta01-2/Top Force

Many thanks

Yeah, the driveshaft and motor position is very TL/TA-01-reminescent, but the thing that threw me off is the saddle pack battery configuration on the chassis. It's hard to confirm it especially when Tamiya has nearly over 30 different chassis'.

west ham utd-

I replied to your question on the rc racechat forum.

The car is based on the Top Force, though it isn't an actual Top Force kit - the chassis material doesn't match either of the 2 Top Force models plus it appears as though the top deck has been custom made to accomodate the white Yokomo steering bellcrank.

The rear shock tower, however, is a standard Top Force Evo tower.

Thanks Bender.
Must have been raced at a descent level for the previous owner to have gone to that level in modifying it.
I'll just call it Garry
