Default Kyosho Chassis Identification

I happened upon this Kyosho Nitro Porsche and would like to be able to locate some parts for it, but I have no clue what chassis it is.

I figure it's a late 90's vintage, and not too high end due to things like the lack of camber adjustment.

And help in identifying chassis would be greatly appreciated


Thanks!

The chassis brought back memories!! I had a kyosho sandmaster ST-2 that is nearly identical to that. Close on the year guess btw, got my sandmaster back in 97 and I reckon that chassis is within +/- 2 years. Went through mountains of spur gears because of the fixed engine mount!!

Giant, Thanks for the info, looks like you have answered my question, I took the Sandmaster info and looked around and it seems as though I have found the suspension arm stops/toe blocks I'm looking for the rear end.
I was able to google a parts break down with numbers, seems as though this chassis has been around as far back as 1992 is what I was seeing.

The stadium truck was the most pronounced, I'll keep looking for the actual Porsche, and they also mention a BMW on the same chassis.

I won't run this car, I actually just want to put it back together and keep it on the shelf.

Thanks again for all your help!
