Default Identify this chassis please

Hi there, its my first post here, and i hafta say this is one of the best forums I've ever visited

I got this in a box lot of rc stuff. I love how beefy this is compared to my more modern stuff like my revo3.3, and redcat tornado epx pro.

If it helps it appears to have a dtx torq .12 engine on it

Duratrax Maximum ST...
Seriously I typed that engine into google, and it was the 2nd link which was to the vehicles instruction manual did you even try looking at all?

I usually don't mind helping people figure out what RC they got, but this one was pretty blatantly obvious as I went on just the info you supplied about the engine, and took less then 10 seconds to find.

Thanks for the info, and yes i did search, repeatedly.

As i said, i got this in a box lot of cars that had all been much modded. None of the cars had thier original engines, and i had no reason to think this one was any different. I knew it was a vintage model is all i could really tell. It has absolutely NO identification on it anywhere.

I intend to get it going, and have no illusions of it being a speed demon, but dang if it doesnt look bulletproof!

won't lie it looks pretty strong, but from my experience there usually is one stupid thing they done that will break easily.
