Yeah, it's the 1/8 scale Associated RC500 2WD, with that unique front shocks layout... Dun think anyone runs them anymore..

Default rc 500

looks like it has the optional graphite chassis. Still have a few parts and associated crank 6 port ronnie motors for that car.

A World Champion in it's time! This is one of the last true RC car! Where more hands-on experience is needed for building it. I believe some dremeling and filing is needed to fit in the conversion kit. Well, Enjoy building your kit!........
