Anyone identify this for me
 
5 Attachment(s)
Hi, I've tried loads of forums no-one has a clue.
All I know its 300mm by 600mm which I think makes it a 1/8 buggy conversion to TC
It has I think a Novarossi 3.5, definitely 3.5 whatever, 2WD and an on board glow starter and engine spin system called Dynamic.
About 10 years old?
Any ideas gratefully received
Tim

wow, thats interesting, id say it possible could be a schumacher, but i wouldnt be suprised if its older than me. i never saw anything like that, and i definitely dont know of any car with an onboard starter which is old.

Best guess so far is a Prafa Swiss company, got a youtube vid of one bumper looks familiar, own plenty schumachers, but not one of those.
PS I have 2 Nitro Nikko 1/8 Clios with on board starter controlled from handset, which Carson just copied on their Dazzler, only 15 years later than Nikko:D

Update it is a Robbe Dynamic 1/8, or 1/7 depending on how you look at it, on road car from 10 years ago, anyone got a manual or spares?
;)

Last week, £41 delivered starter car and body and internal radio gear, no handset, although of six i found for sale or sold at 150 euros or so none had the original starter fitted all had been converted to pull start:D

I think it might be a custom made
car.
Is it for sale?
How fast does it go?
Does it work?
How would you sell it for?
I am in the UK.

Everything has it's price, I now have 2 of them, they were sold as kits by Robbe, I have the BMW and a boxed unpainted Mercedes DTM
Can't tell you much else, never started either of them, as Merc was not complete, although it has one of the nicest looking bodies I have seen.

I have the same but the Mercedes 190e DTM
 
Hi man I have exactly the same as you but the 190e dtm its all complete I have the original box and all the instructions and I believe its from late 1980's early 1990's . I will look at the box when next up in the loft and see but I know mine has its original price tag on which says 999 on it :) and I have been driving mine at work in the very large carpark and it is really fast and sounds great I think. I don't have the charger thing that you start the car with though which I'm looking for.
Have you still got yours ?

I only keep mine because I have the same car in real life and they look good together :D
do you have anymore pictures of the hand held starter so i know what im looking for:D

It looks like both schumacher and prafa swiss. Try to check if there is a name on it or something
