Not that it matters, but it was probably last raced in a silver can class.

I'd check that motor closely. It might even be a "cheater" motor of some sort.

Thanks!
Kinda want to go with a green theme on this car. Already doing pink on my Yok '91 Works project.
I think it‘ll come down to what I can find…

Might be possible. Didn’t ask the guy.
I‘ll have a look if it was reopened. Or what would be a giveaway?

If there are any markings, they will be inconspicuous.

Maybe an extra red dot somewhere or scratches on the can where it was tweaked.

If it was, the seller would have likely mentioned it.

If you run the motor and it seems surprisingly powerful, that would be a good indicator. If it seems pitiful and weak, then it's likely unimproved.

Got my package from WA in finally, after it's extended Aussie tour..... nothing much, just some more 21.5 motors, a quad pack of new Futaba S3003 servos, and another un-branded servo.

The S3003 servos will be perfect for my ongoing M03 and M05 builds :)

It's Christmas in July here. Returned home from being away all week to a bunch of goodies
A Losi 22s that will likely sacrifice it's transmission to my LXT

LUNCHBOX! I actually have the chassis already built now.

CVD parts for various prjocts. the Mini ones are going to be used on my mod Mini JRXT. My XX-4 finally has matching front bones. Also the servo saver setup for my Gemini.

A bunch of odds and ends for the Lazers and XXX, the most noteworthy being the Rere Kyosho Gold shocks that were back in stock (albeit with a 'B' suffix) for the Pakistan Lazer
