Default need id on AWD on road car. looks very nice and maybe rare

I bought thisat a garage sale but the guy had no idea what it was. it was his son's who left it when he left for school. i also picked up a nitro dragster that is is listed for ID in that section. any help would be great.

it has no markings at all and no brand stickers on the body. the pipe is ths racing and the engine is a os max cv-r


any help would be great. even if you can tell me what it is "not" that will eliminate some stuff. i have spent hours on ebay looking at cars and cant find anything like it.

thanks
chris

I believe what you have there is a Mugen Seiki Prime 12. released around 1998-2000. After this model the Mugen Seiki MSX3 made by Academy Models (Made in Korea)

Engine is the OS CV-R .15, one of the better side exaust small blocks of the day. It was available in rotary
and slide carb versions. I bought one for my HPI Super Nitro RS4 that I built in 2002, it hauled the oversized
car around at a pretty good clip. Still have it.
