Default HELP IDENTIFY CAR

My wife suprised me w/ this car last night as an early Valentines day gift. Guess I have to definately get her something now. She knows very little about RC (less than I do and I didn't think that was possible). She said the guy told her it was a TC4 but after inspection I dont think that it is. Any info on what you think it is would be greatly appreciated as I need to purchase some misc parts for it.

Express is the company that makes or use to make it...that car was first out in the late 90's I think. Dont know what model that one is but they all looked the same.

Thank you all very much for the info. The car is going back to the guy tonight since he lied to my wife. True she only paid 60.00 for it but you can't find parts anywhere as they have all been discontinued from what I am seeing.

Make sure to show your wife a ton of thanks and love for her effort... She deserves a big reward for trying.

Then give her a R/C Buyer's Guide with some "discreetely" made circles in the guide about what cars and equipment you would like.

You're right. A little research shows the company is now owned by Dinball, but only producing 4wd mini type cars. They have them listed on their web store!

If you can get rid of it I suggest you do. It was a good car in its day but it is nowhere near strong enuf to handle the abuse of todays brushless/lipo powered setups.
