Default Need help identifying a chassis

Hey everyone,

Had someone stop by our race today who needs some assistance getting his car working well. But to help him out we need to figure out what it is. So here's a pic. Thanks in advance!

Things are headed towards a return of the SWT Series, but for
2017 the focus will be on the Encino Velodrome (and dirt oval racing)

Kyosho TF5 shaft car.

I used to have one, it looked so clean and modern then... it looks so fat and outdated now!

No, the Kyosho has 4screws holding down the rear top deck.

It also has the Kyosho shocks, and is kyosho red. The battery strap is yokomo, but the car is certainly a tf5 shaft.

The one foam tire might be playing with your consistency!

All jokes aside it is a great car. It will probably need a tear down, clean, and rebuild with all new screws, and probably some bearings judging by the screws.

Default Kyosho TF5

It's not a yokomo parts don't fit it would be easier if the cars didn't all look the same

I was thinking it was a Kyosho of some sort. Thanks guys I found the instructions for the TF-5S which looks like the right car.
