Default What is this?

I got these cheep and thought they were traxas but there not. The one has a traxas motor in it but that's all. It's supposed to run but I'm out of batteries for the receiver to test it out. I need to know what they are so I can get parts to fix them up.
Thanks
Shawn

The one with out the filter has one but I took it off to clean. It uses Traxas style drive shafts if that helps.
Duratrax Maximum mt. Thanks. Do you know if anyone still makes parts?

Googled "Duratrax Maximum mt) and found some parts and manuals. They aren't Duratrax Maximum mts. But thanks for trying.
Ya I noticed the back tires too. Hay the rim on the back are RPMs.

Is this yours. if so look at the first pick of mine. it has a braise on the front. look at the last pic under the shock towers at the plate with the post. And last there is a braise/rod going across the middle. Both of the trucks I have has these and I don't see the similarities in yours. I found exploded views on line of the Maximum mt and these are not it.
Thanks for the pics. Looks like a fun truck.

No looked at the chassis plates on tower. It's not an rc10.

I was thinking the same as Nighthawk.... That looks like a 'Pede tranny and fuel tank.

Now you know the first three picks are the same truck. the forth is a parts rig I got at the same time. I think these are production chassis. Both have the same chassis too. I think the shock towers are after market and look to be carbon-fiber or something. I don't believe the shocks are factory either. Now if this helps the flywheel and clutch bell are turned around backwards and the pinion is next to the engine. The brake you can see in the forth pic and is a curved piece of plastic that is supposed to stop the clutch bell. The tank does look like a nitro stampede tank from the pic that "-EXTRA- " posted but nothing else.
Thanks for the input.

i think it looks like a custom chassis because the screws in the front aren't sanded down and it looks very plain. just like someone got sheet metal and made one. the reciever, tank, and engine, and transmission also look from a stampede. i'd say it's a stampede with a custom chassis and different wheels, shocks, and towers

This is a production chassis not home made. Both have the same chassis and they both have a sticker underneath like a serial number. I looked at the exploded views of the stampede and the parts are different except for the tank.

i see what you mean by the flywheel and CB are on backwards...the second pic shows that...its a weird design lol...and you said instead of a brake disk, the brakes are on the CB???? thats really odd lol...
w/e it is, its either custom made with parts from like 20 other cars, or its one far off brand car lol
