Default Need help with recently acquired RC Sedan

I am guessing this post belongs in the Vintage section. I recently was given a 1/10 rc car. I am not sure what the brand or model is. If anyone knows, please tell me. I am more of a RC boater, have done car racing, but not too familiar with it. I was wondering what I should do for maintenance on it. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed.

Looks similar to a tamiya TT01, could be a knock off version if there is no branding

Not really a whole lot to do to maintain it, give it a good clean, check eveything is tight, could also check the tyres are properly glued if neccessary. Enjoy!

Thanks, will do and will enjoy! It has been a fun car to just play around with my son in a near by parking lot so far.

Talking HPI E10

I'm pretty sure that's a HPI E10 with different electronics.

That a tt01 a great beginner car, in Japan they even have club events just for this specific chassis. My number one hop up recommendation is an aluminum center driveshaft for it
