Question
What make and model is this?

Hello all.

Today a colleage gave me this car. He kept the receiver and servos.
It should be at least 15 years old. It has not run for years. So it needs a lot of TLC.
Pulling the cord I can feel compression, so I gues the motor is not seased up.
He told me he oiled the piston before storage.

To be able to restore this car I am searching the internet for the manuals.
The car needs to come apart. I do not want to do this without these.

I know it has a Thunder Tiger engine, the pullstarter says Thunder Tiger PN0079.
The engine has "GT" (whoops) "GP" on one side and "10" on the other.
But I found other brands like tamiya do use these engines.

Who knows the car or knows where to find the manuals.
Meanwile I keep on searching.


Greetings John
