I don't think so, it may be a Yok, but not the M2 USA. I had one of those, & it was noticable by the narrow upper deck with a bunch of aluminum(unanodized at that, but polished so they're quite shiny) standoffs to adjust the chassis' stiffness, & I don't see ANY in that pic. Plus, that car looks like it's set up for a stick pack, & the M2 USA took saddle packs....

I ran the M2 Type-J and the a mate ran the M2 USA for a year or two.

There were 2 versions of the USA chassis, the first (about 1997) had the narrow upper deck with damper at the front and offset cells, the second came around late 98 or early 99, with a V-shape upper deck with damper at the rear and the same lower deck as the J.

That website is a little inaccurate, this is the first version of the USA car:
http://www.rctech.net/forum/attachme...5&d=1190489435

And this is the second version:


There was also a stickpack conversion, but it was a universal 'spare part' that fitted both chassis, it was a couple of U-shaped FRP plates, a load of alloy posts, a belt tensioner to lift the belt over the battery and a semi-tunnel made from lexan. Indeed, when Yokomo did the YR4 M2 Racer with the FRP chassis parts, the stickpack holder came in the kit.

It's definitely not a Z-10. I ran one of those for a while.
