Default Can anyone identify this one?!

Bought it for $35 at a hobby shop, as is. I want to get it running but am trying to figure out what the base model is. There is no model number. There is a throttle servo that is labeled "hitec-303." Any ideas?

It kinda looks home made. the hi-tec 303 is just the name of the servo.
if you can find out what the axles are that would tell what the starting base was. I don't think they are clod or Tamiya axles but I could be wrong.

Here are pics of the undercarriage if this helps. But there are no identifying marks.

What's interesting is the truck was designed to be built for either normal monster truck driving, or more of a crawler type of driving. The torsion bars could be removed to let suspension articulate more. Removing the solid cantilever links, and replace them with shocks will add more articulation to the suspension. Which is why you'll see photos of the truck with sometimes 8 shocks.
