Default Where To Start? Multiple Redcats In Pieces

New here and starting my first large build and needing some guidance.

I was given 5 frames and a ton of other random parts that go with them from my dad. He was given these and and a Losi gas buggy in a trade a couple years ago. He got the Losi running and hasn't touched any of these. I'm kind of at a loss at where to even start with these. My first thought is to simply figure out what they are then start sorting the small bits to know what I have and need. So to start I'd like to get some guidance from here to verify I have what I think I have.

Photos should be attached below.
I believe the one with an engine is a Redcat Rampage MT. .
Of the photo with the 3 empty frames. The 2 on the left are identical and I believe are Rampage XR frames.
The 1 on the right I believe to be a Redcat Dunerunner V3.
Then there is the last car that has the wheels attached. I don't have a single idea of what this could be.

Any advice on the last car and in general where to start would be greatly appreciated. Once I get my bearing of what I have and what I want I can create separate posts for each individual build.

My first Redcat was a Dunerunner when it first came out. It was too heavy to be responsive like the other 4WD buggies back in the day. I swapped to the MT chassis to make it a TT which ran great. Due to the lack of aftermarket TT body options, I converted it to a MT. The MT runs perfectly for me. The only issue to to be prepared for are broken drive cups. They will break sooner or later...no biggie as parts are readily available. Check the Redcat forum for more specific discussions.
