That car is a Thunder Tiger 1/10 BMW M3 GT (TS4N V2 Pro), available a while ago.....If I remember, they had 2 versions, a pro and regular. I don't remember for sure, but I think they had a drive shaft version one and a side belt one, but not sure which was the pro....

A bigger picture would help..... Good luck in finding out.

The car originaly had a side exhaust instead of a shorty muffler that is on it now..... If this is indeed the car that I think that it is, could you please give me a closer picture of the front belt and side belt?

It definately is not a Tt TS4N as the side belt on the thunder tiger is a short one and the body posts are straight, pluss it has a long front belt which has a slot in the top deck for clearance.

The pro was the race version with a CF top deck, 3mm chassis and some other upgrades to make it more durable.

That is an OFNA Z10 nitro touring car. U can still get parts for it from nitrohouse.com. I used to have one of those. It handles great on parking lot tracks.
