Default Please help me identify this car

I picked this car up in a trade and have no idea what make or brand it is. Might seem a bit dumb on my part but I'm keen to find out what it actually is.

Any help would be great, thanks.

Based on searching around the web, my best guess is that it is a Yokomo (drift car) with aftermarket parts. I was able to match some of the parts on your car (rear a-arms) with some photos of other Yokomo cars on the internet.

As far as the specific model, I have no idea. Hope this helps narrow your search.

Thanks heaps guys, guess I'll keep looking and asking around otherwise I'll have a drift car for sale or trade.

I do hope it's something half decent though

Anyone else have any other ideas?

A came across a DX marking on the chassis. Don't know if this helps. I did a quick search and came across a Thunder Tiger Sparrowhawk but it doesn't really look much like it.

So far the closest thing I can find to it is the Yokomo Drift Package with a carbon fibre chassis upgrade.

Any other suggestions?

I mainly want to know incase I decide to keep it and need parts.

Thanks again for any help

It's a Yokomo Drift Package Basic with an Active Hobby Conversion Kit.

I think you might be onto it. The Yokomo Drift Package seems to be very upgradeable so it could have any number of upgrades on it.

This conversion kit does seem a little different though
