Questions?? WHAT IS THIS? BRAND? MODEL? ANYTHING

Hi, I am about to purchase this car for about AUD$130. But the seller claims it is a TB-02 Evo 4. I don't believe it. So, here is some pics of the actual car:
I would like to know Brand and Model if possible. Cheers, thanks

I sure I don't know. But it look like it came from the Jurassic.

The car looks to be a Tamiya TB evolution 1 with some tb-01 parts (eg. the shock tower)

here is the comparison: http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=58267

Well, It looks like a hotch-poch of cars.... it seems to have the chassis and suspension from a TB EVO, but the gearboxes from a TB01....

Have a look at the Tamiya Manuals, might be able to help you solve the mystery...http://www.tamiya.com/english/rc/manuals.htm

Yeh it does look like a TB-02 Evo1. And you are right, it looks like he has changed alot of the upgraded parts to stock cheapy plastic ones. I also noticed the front of the top deck is similar. Maybe it could be a cheap knock-off brand. Who knows.

What do you guys think this is worth? In AUD that is, or USD and I can convert it lol. Thanks everyone for your help! Much appreciated

Personally speaking I wouldn't touch it.

If it has already been bodged together with non-original parts then who knows what kind of condition the rest of it is in.

Plus the TB01/Evo I is long discontinued and parts will be a hassle when you need them.
