Default Can anybody identify this?



Hi all. First post from a new user.

I traded somepiecesparts fora beat up Slayer roller and a 4wd buggy/truggy nitro chassis that I have been unable to identify.
The only identifier that Icould find is a number on the chassis, VB301-1. I did some googling and found one for sale but it linked to google earth. Then Icouldnt locate the ad.
I'm hoping someone here has an Idea of what I have. Anyway, heres a few pictures, post up any ideas you might have. If you need more pictures, let me know.

Its a 1/10 scale 4wd buggy or truggy, not sure.Either it was an expensive model or has some aluminum apgrades. All four a arms are aluminum, soare the steering bell cranks..

Well found a site in hungarian from a year ago where some guy was asking the same thing about the same RC with no answers
I'd guess it was some lesser known RC brand
that mini cup holder in the rear is really throwing me off

Look at the front shock tower. That was a truck or monster truck of some sort. There are elements that really remind me of an XTM design. It could also just be one of the cheap trucks imported from China that are branded under a few different names here.

I've been doing some research and think it might be a Great Vigor or XTM. I havent been able to narrow it down toa specific model yet, but I think I'm getting closer.

Holy crap, could it really be an XTM bullet?

According to Google Image Search they don't exist[&:]

*EDIT*
funny sidenote...see whose name is attached to the fourth Google image search result for XTM Bullet

It's a XTM Baja, They made two versions 2wd and 4wd. The bullet is the 2wd and the Outlaw is 4wd. Someone spent alot of money on upgrades for it. It was a early version of todays short course trucks.
