Default Help identifying 1/8 scale buggy

I bought this at a used hobby shop this weekend, thinking it was a Kyosho Inferno MP. When I got it home and started looking at all the manuals for the MP buggies, I couldn't find one that matched. There are absolutely no identifying marks on it except the OS branding on the motor. The rear shock tower matches the MP6 but the battery box, front tower and upper steering brace match nothing I can find. Also, the lower control arms connect in a way like no MP I can find. Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello RobHeis,

It is a GS Storm Buggy. I would say that it was mostly a copy of Kyosho MP6 at that era.

Cheers..

yep GS storm, probably one of the worst arm mount designs i can remember. lots of them tore the chassis if they got loose or the hardware stretched.
I think ebay and a place called nitrotek are the only places to still get parts for gs cars. storm evo and storm unlimited truck parts will also fit.

hi
Unfortunately they are no longer usable even if they have been repaired
I advise you to find a new one from another version
good luck
