Default What Car is This

It looks like a blacked out Schumacher, but the lack of the front bumber support has me dumbfounded, can someone tell me what and whose car this is.



Thanks in advance.

It is a Schumacher. Someone has removed the front bumper support (it attaches to the two screw holes in front of the shock tower) to change the bumper.

Actually the chassis plate and top deck are aftermarket. The servo is turned, and it appears that the front of the chassis is extended. It also has the EC drivetrain... Is this Chris Geotz's creation ?????

Definitely an MI2 but with different chassis, top deck, shock towers, battery strap, servo turned 90 degrees with TC3/4 steering rack, front hubs, looks like rear hubs and black alloy bits. I cant see the front belt running to the rear diff either so EC style transmission too.

Yes this is Chris Goetz's car. It is based off an mi2 with custom parts he made for it.

Yes as Justin said this is Chris Goetz's car. He has been running it for a while. Its something that him and Chicky came up with and works awesome... He now has an EC he's working with....but he said it was so good out of the box that he isnt going to need to do much!!

They look like the standard silver Tamiya TRF shocks.

The shocks are Tamiya.

I'd heard great things about this car, and always wanted to see it. It looks like Seaball really put alot of work into it.
