Default Need help identifying chassis

I know absolutely nothing about RC cars but I acquired a box of old stuff from an estate sale for $50. in it was a bolink eliminator 10 chassis, 80s tamiya ranger body, 90s tamiya s10 truck (complete), and a almost complete unidentified chassis.

The chassis that is almost complete looks like it only needs a battery but it looks kind of custom so I dont know where to start. It does not have a standard plug. It is belt driven so I'm not sure how he had this thing set up before. Did not have a battery with it. What should I do to get it running? I have the futaba magnum controller that goes with it. I've attached pics for help.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to learning something new

Sorry, it wouldn't let me post images because this is a new account. How can I get pictures on here?

Edit: if you go to my profile the pictures are under my albums

I believe the motor is the Reedy RC10 competition stock motor from what I can tell without taking the whole car apart. What voltage does that motor run at?

7.2V which is actually the equivalent of a 6-cell NiMh stick pack.
For the photos, you can open an account and use photobucket to upload then just post the link here in RCT.

Thanks. The way he had it set up there is a positive connection on one side of the belt and a negative on the other. not sure what kind of battery set up would be best for that. Maybe I will take it to the local rc shop.

I found the motor online and it is a green/silver label Associated Competition Stock motor with the cadillac address on it

The website will not allow me to post links. Can you see the pictures from my profile?

I don't know what chassis that is, but the battery configuration is a six cell saddle pack. It that 3 cells on one side with a wire that connected to the 3 cells on the other side. It was a common setup back in the day, not so much now in on-road, but it still common in 1/10 off-road. Hope this helps some.

Thank you, that helps a lot. I may end up making my own battery pack. I found the old custom NiCD one that was set up for it.

Spot on. The schumacher bodies in the box should have gave it away. Real question now is does any one want to buy it? Will probably be throwing it up on ebay soon. Looks like I got a pretty sweet deal for only $50

If I recall correctly - this chassis was originally 4WD. I knew a couple of guys that would mod them to run 2WD 1/10 dirt oval back in the day. They weren't exactly competitive in that class since the front geometry was based on an 4WD configuration.
