Well if you look at the diffs they look like mbx5, and the carbon top plate front mount looks like mbx5 also, chassis is electric but not gold as mbx6??

Shocks don't look like they're from an MBX6 either, are they even mugen shocks?

This looks like an MBX5 that has been converted to electric. I had a couple of those many years ago. The shocks seem to be something else, as is the front shock tower.

Shocks look very similar to what's on the hobbyking BZ-888.

From what I can tell..

1) Front/rear bulkheads and steering assembly are Mugen MBX5.
2) Chassis plate is a custom one-off piece, notice how the chassis doesn't have any cuts outs for the nitro engine.
3) Mud guards are from the MBX6
4) Miscellaneous non-mugen parts: motor mount, rear universals/axles, front bumper, front shock tower, front and rear shocks.


This is someone's custom homemade project car, finding parts will be hard. I hope you didn't pay top dollar for this OP.

Chassis looks like a BCE. Also rear bulk head looks almost like a tekno part.

Honestly looks like most of the wear items are Mugen, so it shouldn't be to hard to find the easly broken parts.

For bearings, just measure them with calipers. +1 to not paying to much.
