Default HELP Identify this chassis

I found this in my garage and I can not remember for the life of me what kind of car this is, the only thing i see on it is a H in a couple of places and the tires say HPI. I need to order some parts. It is 4wd with dog bones as shafts.

Thanks in advance.

its a Tamiya, look for the manual in that old dusty folder you keep under the boxes with old rc stuff. If not there ,your wife probably threw it out.Sorry bro...

Didn't the SW have greyish silver gearboxes? I thought the black ones were from the Manta Ray? Check the pic of the underside of the chassis, looks to me like the gearboxes started their life red and have been painted or coloured with a sharpie.

Definately a TA02 though. You might have a hard time trying to order parts for it though, it's been long out of production...

The black steering knuckles are an indicator as well. The standard TA02 had blue ones and the TA02W had red ones.
