Default can any one help identify this car

ok so cleaning out the closet my brother in law came across and old rc carpet car, it is similar to the rc legends cars except it has a pan style chassis, i know i need to post pictures to get a positive idea, but for now im just wondering if any one on here would have any ideas as to what it may be if i do post pictures.]

the body says body by bolink and the car and body are an original pair however im not seeing it when i google haha.

Did you look up the Bolink Sport (maybe check e-bay for Bolink stuff, that is how I have identified quite a few cars)

I am dying to know how fast this thing goes and what motor is in it. Just have to buy a charger and i should be good! BTW, the tires that are on it(in the pic), would it kill them if i drove it on smooth asphalt? Or does it need to be carpet? Thanks guys[8D]

That is a Bolink, don't know what model, but it is from Bolink.
Tires should work on asphalt, but if they are old and dried out, might not stick too great. Also go easy on the battery the first few charges, it looks like an old 1700 sce and they are not verry durable.

Any other tips? Those mechanical speed controllers, are you supposed to put dielectric grease on the contacts? I can remember them being a nightmare back in the late 80's when i was into r/c's... Can't wait to get her home and wax her up! Basically just want a no frills charger, doesn't have to quick charge, just get the job done, as i won't be driving the thing the amount of times i did when i was 12... Thanks for any input![8D]
