I'm sorry, I have no idea. The design is very unconvential, this leads me to believe its one of the cheap no brand cars. Then again it could just be an older design tub chassis car.

Do you mean the spur gear? If so, those are pretty much universal.

The purple leads me to thinking a HPI, but that's a far stretch...

I had the same thought. Judging from the phillips hardware its a pretty old kit as well.




Edit: after further digging it looks similar to a tamiya tt-01d but I'm betting its an older variant. Looks like its missing the upper brace. Doesn't quite line up though with the front steering brace....

I would agree to it being an old HPI kit. The purple and the shocks and spring set look like the ones on my nitro rs4.

Hpi never made a shaft car that looked like that though. I thought hpi, but the design language is very different than any of their cars.

I think you should take the spur gear out or whatever is broken and post a picture. Someone may be able to lead you to a part that may work.

Definitely no HPI and no Tamiya. It looks like a generic car and not made by any of the major manufacturers.

This is good advice... There's a good chance this is a clone of a popular electric chassis, and several name-brand parts might be compatible with what you've got... The spur gear (if that's the part that failed) would probably be pretty easy to replace since most spurs fit most cars.

Hahahah, its not a TC3, but I don't know if you are being sarcastic.

Since everyone is throwing out whatever, the shaft drive car is actually an old Awesomatix A600. One of Oleg's earlier and rare prototypes.
