Default Help identifying 1/8 chassis

A buddy of mine picked up a collection of assorted cars, and I was able to identify everything but a 1/8 onroad chassis he has.

Given the vintage of most of the cars, I believe it to be a Mugen, but I could be wrong, and I have no idea what model it might be.

Help is appreciated in advance.

Pictures attached.

That is an RX8 or now known as Edam Razor.

I think Roelof meant XR8/XR80 from Powerracing R/C. Here is a link to the site:

http://www.powerracingrc.com/xr8.shtml

It was a decent car for a first-timer getting into Lola-body 8th scale racing; a bit more forgiving than the top-of-the-line cars of that day if you crashed a lot. Don't know if the car is even producted anymore or if parts are still available.

Thanks guys, that would also be inline with the cost/quality of the cars in the lot more than a Mugen chassis would be. I'll pass the info along.
