Yeah that’s a Junior T. Wide molded chassis, molded shock towers and threaded rod instead of turnbuckles are giveaways. Missing the motor plate though..

I have this coming in the mail. Looks Tamiya and 1/9 scale, but not entirely sure. Any guesses?

Like others have said it's a jrt. Really interested in how that motor is mounted though, the motorplate appears to be mostly missing and there's more than likely a lot of hackery afoot.
Consistency is the key I keep misplacing.

Looks like the RC10 Mirage/Turbo Mirage (not sure of the difference between them). I think this is the same on my old TCP.

RCPS Mirage SS. Repopped by a few guys. Sabula Tech would be most accurate because it doesn't have the raised section above the gear cover. Boki and TBG repop the Proline reissue of the Mirage SS that has it.

It's an RC500 front bulkhead with separate upper arm mount blocks that attach via a dovetail slide, so that camber can be adjusted....but who made it? It's molded, not machined so it's probably not a custom one off.

Looking at a 1/10 Kyosho nitro powered 2wd buggy with a molded plastic chassis. You guys have any idea on what model it is? Thanks!

What would these Schumacher bearing housings fit? They are noticeably thicker than U7188. They were on a shelfer Bosscat I bought, and were obviously wrong. Because of the extra depth of the housing, the layshaft had a lot of side to side movement.

I have TopCATs, Cougars, an XLS, a ProCAT, and a Bosscat. They all use the same size housings- U7188.

They are for the xl xls topcat cougar bosscat etc, you just need to shim the layshaft for play. I use 1/8 buggy diff shims as the Schumacher bearings are the same size also check that the layshaft has the correct original washer and bearing adaptor in place.

The layshaft bearing housings actually changed slightly on the cougar 2 and bosscat they were slightly thicker and had the Schumacher logo of the 3 arrows on the closed side

Looking at today's forum birthdays I saw this and I'm not sure what it is (other than the Peak Performance motor).

Maybe an RC10 with a red pan, Lethal Weapon gearbox, B2/B3 rear arms, 10T shock tower and funky rear bulkhead? Or is there some T2 stuff there?
