For some reason, I'm thinking Dahm's Buggsy, but I could definitely be wrong. If it is, I believe Dahm's went out of business a while ago. Could also be a McCallister, but I don't know much about that company.

Its a RC10GT. I dont like the GT2. I own several GTs. This one has a OS.18. I am also building a GT with a onboard remote start

Definitely a Dahm's shell.

Unfortunately he's out of business, as is the place that bought his equipment.

One of the Parma Xciter shells for a Rustler or Jato may be the closest-looking to what you have.

Otherwise pick up a Proline Crowd Pleazer or Proline '98 F150 shell. The F150 shells may still be available thru Associated.

Checked out Dahms, nose is different. Emailed McAllister and they said not one of their line either

I have a dozen GT tops. When my shelf queen is done I will post up more of it. Its also a RC10GT, lots of Blue alluminum, custom paint job though it could be better. Thinking of aluminum wheels for it but undecided on that.Its biggest hold up is doglegs, ones I have for it are short by a few millimeters and cant find the right ones

Looks like an Andy's humvee body. I had one on my rc10gt years ago. I dont think Andy's is still around, they made a bunch of stuff for the associated cars back in the day.
