can you post pics of the side of the engine and a better overhead view? kinda looks like a "redcat" product but Fuel tank placement is wrong. there is not branding on the servo boxes or battery boxes?

it looks like maybe the pull start was used from an hpi nitro star or similar and maybe the transmitter was adopted?

I dont think they swapped the engine.. only the pull start. the 18 stamp on it looks like the factory caldera stamp on most of the caldera 3.0 pictures ive seen.. but i am no expert at all so... thats just my best guess since no one had replied i thought i may try and help you

I'm pretty amped up now I can rc again without fear of braking the truck and not being able to find parts I used to own a tmaxx 2.5 great truck but I snapped it in half Crashed it into a plastic barrel I fixed it and sold it this looks really simple to work on unlike the tmaxx it 8 shock absorbers
