At first I was thinking It was an early Team Associated car but now I'm not so sure since it has a solid front axle.

I have early AE pan cars (10L, 10LSS, 10L3), this is not from AE. I was thinking Cobra maybe? I dont recognize that front end.

Default Bolink maybe??

Kind looks like a Bolink to me... think they had a gas pan car for a short time.

Couple other things... looks like a duratrax slide carb for an OS cz... looks like a duratrax head too.

The rear pod is AE RC-300BD. The rear brake and Ball diff are certainly Associated. The front end is custom made by several people across the country. Charlie Weiss from Dallas made several of these front ends. I can't
quite make out the steering blocks, might be Associated or MRP. The front Wheels look like MRP units.

Remember that back then, aftermarket (and even homemade) parts were everywhere. It looks like it started life as an Associated but has many aftermarket parts. The chassis and front end look like something Composite Craft would do, though I don't know if they ever messed with the nitro side of things.

A guy named Dennis Kimple from the Toledo Oh. area built front ends for pan cars way back in the day that looked alot like that.

In searching for 300BD, looks like the right track. Front end must be MRP, axles are very skinny, my AE axles are much thicker with a drop down for the 4-40 nut.

Horizon (Dynamite) did a nitro powered 1/10th scale pan car - back in the early 90's if I remember correctly.

I had one; reviewed it for one of the magazines (Competition Plus?) but can't remember the name of it..... It was released about the time that the 235mm 2 wheel drive 1/10th scales came out....

cleaned up...the tank is toast, I will have to hit 2 of the bigger shops around me to find it/similar. i put a little CF vinyl on the chassis for a touch 'o bling.

I still need to finish cleaning the motor and put a good set of tires on there. Pretty sure this is a 235mm chassis, so I will also search for a body I like.

The tank looks similar to an Associated tank. Find one for a NTC3 or RC10GT and it may fit.
