No idea what it is but I would not buy it for it is probably so old you can no longer get parts for it. You can get some good deals on some newer stuff on the Buy/Trade section of the forum. At least then you can buy a car you can get parts for.

Hi there...Welcome to the forum.

I wouldn't get the car. Reason being that the car looks ancient. Thus there won't be any parts for the car if you would 1 day break it.

The car looks like a very old Kyosho to me.

But go look out for a more decent car that's of recent times...

It's a Kyosho Alpha. Old school rear engine 4WD.

Ummm, curiosity value only, no parts available, and not really much use. You can do a LOT better.

I would not recomend buying that car. If you break it you may as well throw it away.. Go on this site or ebay and look for a good tc3 or tc4. they can be found used super cheap.. Parts are easy to get, and it will be very good for you to get started.. Als try to find a hobby shop close to you and go ask them some questions. dont let them try to sell you dtuff, cause some try to get you to buy stuff you dont need. Just do some research and ask q's on this site.. most the guys will get you the info you need..
