Default What is car is this?

Hello. I haven't been into RC cars since I was a kid. I wanted to get out of helicopters and go to something I could enjoy with my kids. I received this for my birthday. I believe it is HPI 1/5 scale but don't know what model it is. It needs a little work so I need to find the manual.

Could be a HPI Flux buggy (electric). Gas or electric, looks like it's missing an engine or motor.

It is electric. The motor is there. It runs pretty well. Crazy fast. It is 4WD. Something is wrong with the front diff. The front wheels are not driving

Ahh haven't seen that conversion kit in awhile.
Always wondered how they hold up as I wanted one in the worst way when it 1st came out, but was too broke to afford it.

time to spend $150 or so and buy a HPI short course truck body for it.
But yeh, its a savage with a 1/5 conversion.
Probly stronger than a 1/5 gas powered model!
