Default What car is this?



Got this at my LHS's annual sidewalk sale for $1. The fuel tank says Team Academy on it. Looked at MRC's current TCs but they dont look like this, so it's an older car.

Sorry to burst in... but that isnt a Mugen Prime...



Look at the servo configuration between this mugen prime pic and the pic from Razor_Racer... Unless they released a different upper deck, I would say this a analogous car to the mugen prime but not the same.

Wow that is one obscure car. Any chance I can get parts for it? I need shock towers and top plates to mount the camber links.
