well iv eran the Proceed and the Super nitro, its hard to tell from the pics cause they are soo small.. but hpi only made 2 cars that size as mentioned above, if he handed you hpi parts look up the part # on hpiracing.com, its probly the proceed, maybe the hobby guy never seen one before, they have been discountinued for a while now though... :M2:

If my memory is correct, the Proceed had a receiver pack that went in from above just behind the fuel tank, not from under the chassis like this one.

XR8. The battery tray pretty much identified it. It also helps if you own one.
