It could be a Kyosho GP Ultima ST (ST for Stadium Truck). Nitro powered. Could have been in the shop around 1997's I think.

Ask people of rc10talk.com, they're a source for all vintage buggies and trucks.

I'm not sure its kyosho, I think it could be a RC10 ST electric converted to nitro by way of the old Trinity conversion. It looks to be AE shocks, suspension arms and other parts as well as the "stealth" transmission. Hardware like the skock nuts being plastic is a AE thing of old. But the gas tank does look to be Kyosho, and I don't remember Kyosho ever having white plastic anything and I owned Kyoshos as far back as the Optima, Rocky, and Big Brute to name a few. Hardware like the shock nuts being plastic is a AE thing of old.
Maybe some one else can chime in that has more vintage expierience as i am going off my memories from when I was kid.

It's a mix of parts, something converted to a truck. Losi shock towers, rc10 shocks. I don't see any rpm, the white stuff is not associated. The front arms with the skinny part near the tire are familiar but the bulkhead is black..... definitely a project of some sort.

That is a Kyosho Outlaw Rampage Pro. I'm 100% positive. Nice truck!

The shocks do not seem to be original though. The rears look like associated, not sure on the front. The body is not original either.
