Specifically the 'Gold Edition' if the shocks and wheels are which they appear to be.

I cannot find anything about these pink 2.2" trinity wheels with 12mm hex. These look really oldskool. Did someone else see these before and knows for what car these were produced?

Hi, I'm hoping someone can ID this chassis. It's being sold as part of a lot of AYK RX3000 Expert cars (although the seller says they're Tamiyas), and he's counting this as one more car in the lot. I'm trying to figure out what the value of the lot is to me and I'm only interested in the AYKs.
Any help would be appreciated.

No ideas or pointers on this car then?

Isn't that an Associated type servo saver? Any other brand use these?

Also, that encased gear case. Any clue what brand that could be from? I believe I've seen it before, but can't recall where.

I don't recall ever seeing a model that's looked like this before. It could be something that was only sold in a certain country or countries possibly. Hmmm...

doesn't ring a bell either... but the steering bellcrank is strangely RC10-ish. Anychance this could be a homebrew car?

Hey! Thanks for the replies. Both your negatives says a lot already.
Could be a home-brew, or could be an limited market offering. Either way. I'm shying away from the whole lot purchase. I would have to sell a lot of individual parts to keep just a few; Several AYK 1/12 differencials, Tamiya RS540sd motors, foam tyres, etc, just to keep a pan car or two, a body and a few spares.

Thanks again.
Chris

Sorting some boxes I found these parts but don't remember which car they go for.
I think the wheels are Tamiya. The parts in bag I don´t remember at all. Even not what purpose. Driveshafts, bodyposts ... ?

I need help identifying this basket case I got, looks like alot of parts for it in the boxes of junk it came in, some kyosho belts still in bags .. I'd like to get a manual so I could figure out what parts go to it and get it functional anyway, it's pretty cool all aluminum 'everything' ..

Those front wheels look familiar , could be Tamiya Opel Ascona or Audi Quatro ?
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
