Default Unknown 1/8 truggy slider help please

I'm still new to the hobby but very mechanically inclined .I have a ecx ruckus right now looking to build this truggy I just bought but I need help identifying it so I can start ordering parts for it.i want to bath it and run it around the backyard to give my dog exercise.i would like it to run on two 2s lipo batteries and go at least 45 to 50 mph.and be more reliable than my ruckus.any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I don't want to spend over 600 all together.

I bet you could be able to get a great used 1/8 truggy for $600 rather than trying to piece together a mystery platform that you know nothing about. I don't want to sound rude, but why go out and blindly buy a (I'm assuming used) RC.

I know every situation is different when it comes to dogs and how they act. You will get some flak when wanting to give your pet something to chase, and potentially getting hurt in the process. You must have got one them there faster breeds of canines . 45 ~ 50 MPH? For real? I think that's asking for trouble.

Nothing wrong with getting a dog to chase a rc car... if u havent done it man u are missing out... our dog just likes to chase it and nips at the wheels. Deadset compared to walks or playing with other dogs its one of the best forms of exercise....

but...... what is this new truggy? im not seeing any pics???

just don't get ya hopes up..... old rc cars are generally not worth fixing. they are like real cars... u can spend hundreds fixing it and its only ever gonna be worth a fraction of that.
