Default Can anyone identify this Nitro?

I was over at the nitro road area and they suggested I come over here. Can anyone identify this old nitro? Been trying to find info on it, but came seem to find anything. It has a chain drive and an old MagnumPro 21 motor. Would love to restore it. ANy info would be awesome. Thanks!

Why? The vehicle shown is a nitro offroad.


It's a Thunder Tiger Silver Fox, with some type of aftermarket shocks.

I didn't even notice that the OP's was converted to 2wd. Most of these early buggies were 2wd. The Silver Fox was one of the first 4wd models, so it probably was converted to be competitive.

details its all about the details as a moderator.. ya i could not find one that was 2wd so i assumed parts where broken and taken off to be driven around.. but yes makes more sense to make it 2wd to run with others if this was one of the first 4x4's out and everything else was 2wd.. jeremy
