Not sure Tally.

I looked at Ofna's website and couldnt find anything that looked like this.

I am looking for something cheap to run in a spec dirt oval class. This would be perfect but I need to be able to get some basic parts for it like a-arms and the like.

Any help is appericated.

Thanks Tally.

You are correct Tally,

I did some searching on the OB4 and if you hunt long enought you will find the electric version.

Thanks again

wonder if all those parts are still available???? If so this would make a great dirt oval car.

Hitman


Thanks to both of you for helping figure this one out.

the best cars are ones you can readily get parts for. as for dirt oval, saddle packs are probably not ideal as yo want the weight to one side, not necessarily balanced..

There are a lot of brand name instead of OFNA in USA, GM in Germany, there is also another name in Japan so I forgot. In the original country, I mean in Taiwan, it's called Hong Nor, I am confidence this is not their latest chassis this one in the pics it's newer, it's called TC4, don't confuse with the AE's one, It's released in year 2000, but the guy with this chassis told me, this car is always understeering, I am not sure so I didn't try it before.

Nope, The International had the more conventional (for 2000 anyway), motor below the layshaft, behind the batteries layout. The car pictured is a regular pivot-ball OB-4. My dad ran one for awhile. It sucked on Carpet with foams, and on asphalt with rubbers, but it was pretty good on Asphalt with foams.

I could tell you this car is a weaky handling in carpet with rubber, some years ago I saw an OFNA team driver (was the fastest among others with the same car) use it to compete in H or I final main(200 competitors in race) and almost lose the 3rd position with my friend.
