Does it currently run properly? Looking at the pic, I didn't see a glow plug wire attached, so I was kinda like HRMMMM

Wire? Do you just put the igniter on there, start that bitch up, and take off the igniter? That's how mine works anyways.

Traxxas has the "easy" start system that does have a wire running to it. 99% of the cars have no wire, you just put the starter on it, get it running and pull off the starter.

The car runs awesome!

Any upgrades or mods done to this thing? Would also be cool to know what model it actually is.

I bought it used and the guy I got it from said it was HPI. I am not certain.

Its a great car regardless.

I dont know if it has any mods, the only thing I know of is the 18 tooth pinion gear. I also have a new 16 tooth pinion for it.

It just doesn't look like hpi construction. The carb boot is purple like hpi uses

Better pics would help.

Could you post up a handful of additional pics (mainly of the chassis) so maybe we can ID what this thing actually is? I'm interested, but not sure I want to get into something when I don't even know what it is
