This is a MR4TC. It was very good in its time. The car/design is about 5 years old, but will still be competitive for you..

they used the same chassis, diffs etc i think...it is convertable but it takes a lot of parts and is fairly expensive.

*Ball Diffs
*Car is Plastic
*Only problem i can think of is weight, but untill you become competative yourself the car will be fine.

Sure there must be some lightened chassis upgrades for it somewhere.

The car is actually an MR4-TC PRO. The pro model had many upgrades from the first version. The car was VERY competitive in its time, maybe the best car out.

Actually the chassis could be graphite...without seeing a close up pic, its hard to tell...

The Pro came with the upgraded chassis, so it might be graphite...Does the chassis have a grey-ish tint to it??? If so, then its most likely graphite

If you plan on racing on carpet or high grip asphault you'll need a new upper deck, looks like the previous owner raced on a low grip track and cut most of the supports out of the upper deck.
