Default Anyone know what model this tamiya is?

I am trying to find out what model this is. I think it is tamiya but i am not sure. It is 4 wheel drive (drift), it is belt operated ( no drive shaft), it has the engine covered the engine is in the rear. I bought the car second hand but the last owner did not know what model it was. The car looks like it's 5 or 6 years old nothing in the car is adjustable ( the shocks cant be adjusted , camber cant be adjusted ,nothing). If anyone knows the model i really need to change the counter gear, thanks. Here are some pics of the chasis :

I agree the shocks do look like a stock tamiya shock.  I would check out tamiyaclub.com they have helped me out more than once identifiying something.  Good luck!

That is a Tamiya TA03 chassis. Not sure which body it had when new but it is some version of the TA03

Its a ta03f for sure. Looks like the "S" version.( short wheelbase ) judging from the bumper.

Thanks everyone it is a ta03r-s. Another thing, can i replace the spur gear with any other tamiya or does it have to be ta03? Also, can i put a smaller type of belt on the car?
