Default Can anyone tell me what model car this is?

I was wondering if someone might be able to tell me what kind of car this is? The person I bought it from said that it's a 1/10 Tamiya but wasn't sure of anything else.

I've searched the Tamiya site as well as all the Tamiya threads for nitro cars and I couldn't find a picture that matched this chassis.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Your car has an aftermarket motor an pipe, you'll need a starter box to start the engine

Do you think this car is worth $80 with no radio?

Thanks guys, the car hasn't been shipped yet and I told him to keep it and to refund my money. The car was listed as a Tamiya and I thought it was a TG10 chassis when I bid on it but after I looked at the pictures closer I saw a couple differences.

Thanks again everyone!

I bought it through ebay and he listed it as "Tamiya Nitro Car". Obviously, this isn't a Tamiya car! LOL

I had communication with him today and he said he was still waiting for my payment to go through so the earliest he would be able to ship the car out is tomorrow. Because I know he didn't ship it, I sent him an email explaining that the only reason I bought the car was because it was a Tamiya and I knew I'd be able to get parts at my LHS. If he ends up shipping it to me, I'm just going to dispute the charges with Paypal and my CC company and he'll probably end up losing the car and the money! If he's smart, he'll just not ship the car and give me my money back...

I'll keep everyone posted because I'm still in the market for a new car and I'll need some help choosing an affordable "First Nitro"...

I got my money back!

I'm going to check out the different threads on nitro to see what a good 'First Nitro' car/truck would be.

Thanks again to everyone that helped me figure out that I was getting screwed and allowed me to not waste $80 on a P.O.S.
