    Its a guy from Australia, its apparently been having problems overheating the last week, then it smoked a Castle Monster Mamber ESC and caught on fire, and the owner had nothing to put it out with. still trying to find out more about it

    If it's 1/16, then it's a Traxxas BOSS 302 or rally car or something. If it's a 1/10, an Associated B44.1?

    RE: Who can guess what this is?

    I'm going to guess a E-Revo. You can clearly see the Castle motor case, and what looks to be short springs like the rocker suspension.

    I would agree that the spring compared to the motor gives a hint to what it is

    Details are key! Looks like when it caught on fire, the only thing to extinguish it was wet mud lol. Show me the carfax!

    Unmistakable part locations, obviously an erevo. Looks like a battery fire to me.

    Looks like what a Revo would look like if Swamp Thing owned it, and tested out its waterproofness

    well put untested and include the ESC, and motor(as I doubt they can be taken off) or have any value


    could always try and warranty it to traxxas

    RE: Who can guess what this is?

    Looks to me (I may be wrong) that it was involved in a fire and possibly is/is not the cause of the fire. Reason being is it looks like it was moved from where it burned and placed on something that also burned. The whole area looks like it was on fire and I can't make out what the thing on the very top center is but it too looks like it was burned as well? Just sayin![]

    the background don't look burnt to me at all looks like either a piece of rusted steel, or maybe some outside workbench due to the holes I see drilled in it.

    the only things I see on it are mud(assuming it was used to try and smother the fire out), a curly servo wire from the ESC, the brushless motor, and some shocks thrown on top(most are in their proper spot the one looks like it completely separated from the chassis, and still has the rocker attached which is what I assume you mean in the center), and the battery which I assume is where it started cause the battery is completely exposed where it should be encased in plastic.

    only question what did the tires, and body look like
