Default Identify this on road car?

This chassis came in a lot of cars I bought in Michigan. I have searched the web over and can not figure out what it is.

The only hint I have is on the belt. YOKOMO ZS-537. The belt fit a lot of on road cars, and I'm pretty sure it's not a yokomo.

The TEKIN sticker on the rear of the chassis was probably put there by a previous owner, and I'm pretty sure Tekin never made a car.

The red and white checker flags sticker with the letters R R on it is on the front of the car, and looks like it could be a factory sticker, but again no results from the internet.

Can anybody recognize this car? Surely somebody on R/C Tech can tell.

My next step is to post a picture of it on a milk carton!

It's a Yokomo... one of the Mr4's I am sure someone can identify the exact model.
The R R stands for Robinson Racing.

Yes itīs a MR4-TC but there were a lot of different versions.
Basically this one looks like a MR4-TC Custom but the topdeck is from the TC-Special or MR4-WC. Also shocks, turnbuckles and rollbars are optionparts.

I think it's probably a Pro, the first hopped-up version Yokomo did.

Yes the chassis looks alot like a buggy as itīs very wide. I know of just one MR-4 version what did use a much narrower chassis. This was the MR-4 WC Replica what was the same or at least very similar to the one used by Masami and Hara at the TC worlds in 2000.

I thought is was a joke at first..because Losi did the same thing before yokomo did the converter deal..( Steet weapon )
