See if you can send it to me in a PM - I'll try to upload it.

I just tried uploading/attaching a test image, and it worked great. Hmmmm... Anyone else specifically getting an "http error" upon uploading images?

Well....something funky going on with my laptop. god knows what, everything except this damned function of attaching pictures seems to be fine. changed wifi network, logged in again, cleaned up cache.....rebooted a few times....i dunno. attached with my other computer. anyway, let's let the detectives get to work.

I get it on every pic I try to upload from my phone unless it's a live image. It tells me that the file size is 3mb but the pics from my phone are 4.2? Then it pops the error message and I have to log in again.

Try taking a screenshot of the photo and posting that. It will significantly reduce the file size.

Not much, but I had an X Factor (XTM) - it was a huge hunk of hooey. I rebuilt the axle assemblies many times, always was tight or sloppy. There wasnt a medium. I never ended up running it and sold it off for pennies on the dollar.

1/10 pan car.
unknown chassis.7.JPG

I found an old thread (10 years old) on a car very much like one I recently got. https://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?t=28626


Also found the same car on RCTECH, same person posting the same car.
There was really no consensus on the manufacturer.

Unknown chassis.6.JPG



From what I have gathered...

The motor pod is Parma.
The front suspension is similar to Delta.
The body posts are the same as my Delta Spyder. They are fairly common to many pan cars though.
The wheels are TRC BBS.
The 8/32 chassis screws and nuts are the same as early Associated RC10.
The T-plate on my car looks to be hand made, not original. Oddly though there are no marks from the 2 adjustment screws on my car, where the screws would contact the chassis.
My car had taken a bad hit on the front left which I repaired as best I could.

Thanks for any help

Front suspension beam looks like it's from a Vicfor Concept One pan car.

Also I put a spring where a shock is usually positioned on a similar pan car.

There was a piece of old hardened fuel tube there much like the other car when I got the car. No small fuel tube available.

I wish they did so I could help you out, but it all looks too modern for me. :?

Okay I think I got a couple...

The blue motor plate and a-arms are from a Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo and the gears might be from a T-Maxx.
