Default Identify Vintage Kyosho Buggy Chassis

Hopefully there is some Kyosho expert out there that can help me identify this chassis. I inherited this car in a box of stuff my cousin didn't want to move with him from Texas to London. It almost looks like a Scorpion or something like that but its only about 8 inches long and has a 280 motor. I haven't been able to find anything about it online.

Default Old Kyosho Chassis

That looks like an late 1980's or early 90's Kyosho Baja Bug, they had an unusual scale (maybe 1:20?) and came with the kyosho pulsar transmitter, esc/receiver incorporated into one unit, and a seperate servo, They ran a 280 size brushed motor can and had body options for a ultima (thats yours) and an optima as far as i can remember.
They were released here in New Zealand but the class never really took off.
Hope that helps.
