FWD? that would make this car rear wheel steering?

I don't think it's Tamiya, front wheels looks nothing like anything Tamiya put out. Looks more like AE wheels from early/mid 80's. Also front bumper looks like big kydex? I don't think there was any Tamiya car with kydex bumper... could be wrong.


off topic.. sparx, volvo are NOT made in US (land of the free and home of the brave) lower end , ie, S60, S40 ect, are made in Belgium. It is however, owned by Ford. Don't you know what cars are made in your own country?

Default Who knows? The NET!!!

It looks like a custom made oval type car. From examine pictures it looks old with the weird shaping. Oh well time to search the net...i guess thats the only thing that knows....its not human.

I'm guessing it's a custom made car. Since the parts look like they're from several different companies...

Although it does look similar to the new Losi!

I started playing RC since late 70's (Oooops, I disclose how old I am) . This car is an antique. Sure, it is a pan car with mechanical speed control. This kind of design is around late 70's and early 80's until Associated designed the RC12i which had independent suspension.

It looks like a Graupner, from about 1980
Probably made for them by AYK or Kyosho.

I say it is a Assocaited car. It has all the old school features; piano wire likkages forsteering the battery hold down, bumpers, etc......
