That is definitely an OFNA model. Looks like an Ultra GT LX or a variation of that.

That KYOSHO GX.21 is a great motor for moding, I have 4 of them mode to kingdom come. As for the buggy, yes it looks like a OFNA LX.

Done quite a bit of work to mine, goes like crazzy now. Put in ceremic bearings front and rear, portted and polished to an extent the cylinder liner, lightened the piston, fluted the crank, polished the cylinder head and gave it some extra cooling fins, reworked the fly wheel to give it a fan like set up to help cool the engine crank case,knife edged the con rod, make my own clutch system which give it so much bight its a bit like driving electric with an on/off switch. Opened up the carb to 8mm (original is 7.5mm) and polished the air intake of the carb.
This thing is FAAAAAST.

Didi'nt do the work with a dremal, to dangerous, it could easaly take away to much material. I used jewelers files, took a bit longer to do the work but came out real nice and is more accurate. I did however use a dremal to polish the cylinder head to a mirror finish and the fly wheel and the inside of the carb. Busy last night doing the exhaust port.
I have 3 GX.21 engines each tuned to a different level just to experiment with and 1 standard as a comparison.
