Default New Car....

.....Hi everyone....I just got this car from a friend for $20. It looks like an older carpet racer. My friend has no idea what company made the car and i haven't found a bit of info. about it on the internet. So i took a few pics hoping that maybe someone on here can tell me what kind of car it is and if i can get parts. (I attached the pics)

lol yea it kind of does look like its homemade but I highly doubt it is....the body post are high in the back so it could be a sprint car? I'm not sure....its very light and its direct drive...thats all I know....

I would ask for my $20 back.. I have seen L3's complete go for under $50.It would cost you a lot more than $50 to put that car back together,you need a rear axel,rear shock,tires..etc..and when it's all together it will still be an out of date,slow car..save your money and just buy an old out of date L3..you can still get parts for that car..

i have axles but thats about it. I don't really have much money right now because i'm in the process of rebuilding my Savage but i don't know....I'm probably not gonna race this car (actually more like i'm sure i'm not) so is it still good to play around with? maybe something like a fast motor to dust my friend's car?

LOL yea thats probably what i'm going to do. I just wanna beat my friend and my evader has no chance even without the screwed up diff gears. I have a Tekin pro pulse 700 so i'm not worried about motor limits and i know someone thats selling tons of 3300 matched packs....and i could get a receiver and radio...and i even think he has tires for this thing.not bad for twenty bucks and knowing some people...

I think he was kidding. The rear axle and hub alone (which seem to be missing unless you took them off?) will bring the total price up higher than just buying a used L3.
