Default Guy need help... What car is this? What motor is this?

Hey guys,


I am looking at this road car. I know NOTHING about it.. What car is it? How old is it? Can I get parts for it? What is it worth?

What kind of motor is it?

Thank you

holy crap.. I don't know what chassis it is.. But thats older than my BMT Pantera.. MY first 8th scale... early 1990's late 80's? That would make me run the other way.. unless you want to shelf it and look at it. Todays nitro Touring cars are probably faster...

man I couldn't get parts for my pantera YEARS ago.. so I ended up selling it a while ago. Is it yours now? or are you thinking about buying it? also freshening up old engines can be a pain, pistons and sleeves can be hard to source.. do you have any info on it? like what does the engine casting say? OS? Nova Rossi? something?

It was a car for starters and bashers but it did handle good, parts will be difficult but I believe things in the drivetrain are exchangeable with Serpent parts.

Wow, a carbon deck.... did improve the car very well ?
By the way, the Pantera is a car from 1995/1996 not from the 80's, to be precise, it was the last car before they stopped production and then only made some rallygame cars afterwards.
Do not misunderstand me, I did drive BMT as well and I loved the car but that design is outdated but would like to see how it would perform in the hands of a topdriver and a current engine.
