Default Need Help Identifying Car

New Edit: I'm having a problem getting the engine going. It starts for 4-5 seconds then just dies, doesn't respond to throttle input.

Can anyone identify the motor that's in it? Maybe I can hunt down the stock needle settings and go from there.






Original post:

Received this car for free from a family friend, cleaned it up a little, and probably gonna stop and get a few things for it this weekend and try getting it running (fuel filter, fuel lines, glow starter, fuel, and actual body posts). Can anyone help identify it? I'm assuming it's some knock-off redcat car or something judging by the "Golden Lion" chinese sounding pipe...or is Golden Lion a legit brand?





Thanks!

I think you got it! Google'd around a bit and it appears to be the RTR "sprint" version I think. Thanks!

Think you hit the nail on the head. Found the manual which shows 1.5-2.5 HSN and LSN flush with carb after break in.

And I just found out that there's a leak in between the head and case. It looks to be a shim problem, I'll grab some soon and finish tuning it.
