It's a TC 3 with a carbon fiber aftermarket chassis. Most likely Pengin, or IRS.

Who the heck said it was a Mugen? I don't think they have ever made an electric TC.

TC3.

Check the pin mount and hinge pin. They usually break or bend too.

This is one of the most iconic chassis made and is clearly an Associated TC3 with some after market chassis kit.

Very popular car when released well over 10 years ago. Can probably still be competitive today at the club level.

Ah, the good 'old days....when you can get a high end tourer for $220.

The FT TC3 did come with a carbon fiber chassis but it was molded the in the same tub style as the original chassis.
I am almost 100% positive that is an after market chassis.

The FT TC4 did come with that style chassis.

The FT TC 3 had a carbon reinforced plastic tub. That particular chassis is an IRS though. I have and IRS TC3 in hand to compare it to.

Agreed. IRS Chassis. Had that setup for a while, then went back to my Schumacher.
