Default Can someone help confirm an old nitro buggy ID (AE)

I think its a TA RC10GT (Gen1?)

A neighborhood kid looking to get into RC brought this over.. He got it from his grandpa, it has been sitting for about 7-10 years according to the family

they are on a really tight budget, so I want to try and get this at least operational for him.. It needs a new exhaust coupler and pipe, a few small fasteners, a body and it looks like new body posts in the front.

Just want to make sure I order the right parts for it.. It actually runs pretty good, after about a half a day of tweaking and tuning.

yes and no, 90's RC10GT factory team kits had the black chassis and white arms. During the early 2000's AE released a RTR version of the RC10GT with blue chassis and black arms. (I owned one around 2001-2002ish)

Heres a link to the RC10GT2 RTR so you can see the differences.

Am curious, are the parts on a rtr gt2 different from the kit as far as replacement parts?
I bought a black tub gt in 96 or 97 that I still have and it came with all black parts, arms etc...

awesome, thanks again guys that helped me getting straightened out.. The tub thing was throwing me off too, didn't really look like a Gen 1 or 2 lol..

Found the manual under RTR GT, they list the "tub" and "flat chassis" as separate manuals under the subheading.

If I remember correctly the different parts between RTR and FT kits were..

Steel turnbuckles
Dogbone Rear axles
Blue anodized shocks without threaded collars.
Tall engine mount for pullstart AE .15 engine.

Yes and no, early tub black chassis had white plastics but they also got black plastics in 95 before the change of chassis in the early 2000's, the first RC10GT to hit the shops in Europe that I bought was in 1992 but it came in US in 1991 at that time there no rtr but 2 versions, the sport that had gold colored shock bodies, dogbones,3 pieces wheels,and no bearings (all on bronze brushing) and there was the team that had grey shock bodies, universal drive shafts and full bearings. The 2 models were had each a version for pull start or non pull start. The one in the picture is a rtr second generation of the RC10GT and the pipe and engine have been replaced by an OS engine and what looks like a Ron Paris pipe, the air filter is also not original.
Sold my last one 2 years ago and still regret it:-)

I would also add that this one has a Robinson metal spur gear, these are great for bashing as they never get stripped, you would also need to replace that battery holder for a proper 5 cells pack with 6volts at the receiver.
The engine on it is a OS 18 that might be a little over the top for that car, I had a OS 18 TZ in my last one that made it a beast pulling wheelies all the time but quite a pain to drive around the track.
If you are able to find some RPM front and rear arms you would have a bullet proof car.
