Default Help identify this 1/8 On Road Racer

Hey guys, I need some help on identifying a car someone is selling. The seller says it's about 10 years old, and I have been looking at Serpent's and Mugen's old discontinued 1/8th kits, among others, but have found nothing that looks like it. I am totally baffled, and the main thing I see that is very different from all the ones I have seen are the side-to-side inboard mounted shocks. If any one of you knows what this might be, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks.

I think g-wan got it. It does seem to be either a GS Sonic or, apparently, a Team Magic Shock. Check this thread out over at rcgroups, striking similarity there

So, the burning question is, should I get it, considering there are virtually no parts for it....?

Can't post URL's yet, so here's the thread:

How can this be a GS Sonic? Are the front upper arms showing the serpent logo? Its a Vector 4wd 2000 specs. It came with the adjustable rear antirollbar, alum wheel locks and an alum middle block bearing holder. Too bad its a 'top down' photo, would like to see more
