it looks like a procced but that chassis is not a proceed chassis it look like more a super nitro chassis and the proceed has difffernt features like the wheel release hubs . maybe it is a super nitro with different parts or like proceed parts .

Thats not a proceed, the proceed has quick change hubs, a longer center belt. Not sure exactly what it is. Maybe its a hybrid of some sort.

why is his chassis gray, not purple, if it was a racer 2, which i doubt it is, because miamiz knows just about everything about the Racer.

Ok ok............i think i got it this time even tho ur car LOOKS like cen its not 100% look alike becuase of the longer arms and a few other things........i took a really good look at the car and i serously thing this is the car u have



the hubs on ur car where prolly modded to mount regular 1/10 wheels but ur car looks like a 235MM class car, it looks nothing like the serpent impact OR the mugen avatnce (spelling) so i think the only other thing left is could be is this COLT racing car , ive only seen one of these cars ONCE in person in my life and there built extremely crappy and looking all all the things u need for the car i think its pretty much worthless to fix it up i got that pick from this website

http://www.colt.com.tw/

the car is the last link called (COLT 10 RACING CAR) there is barely any info but there car does look 99% like the car u have

Not sure what it is but its definetly not anything made by HPI. I know all of HPIs belt driven cars which werent many and thats not any of them. The proceed has a long belt on the left side and that car has a short one and the HPI belt driven cars had the short belt on the right. From a brief look at it, it has to be some kind of track car, not a basher because of the pivot balls and the fact the the belt is on the left side, right behind where the engine backplate would be, it doesnt allow much room for a pullstart.
