Question

Can someone help me identify this car


We need to get some parts but do not know where to begin. There is nothing molded on the car at all. Does anyone know what the make or type of this car could be. Thanks for any help.

2nd that. I almost said don't bother but noticed the trans is sitting on the chassis itself in the first picture.

It's definitely a Team Associated RC10T3. One of the best trucks AE ever built IMO. I still have one myself and still love it! Thunder Tiger purchased the molds and all rights for that truck and re-released it under their name and the model "Phoenix". So you can still get them and parts too.

Actually, they own it all, as in they own Associated.

I heard Associated was purchased by the hobby company that owns Tower Hobbies (Horizon??). Is that the same one that owns Thunder Tiger too? Just about all parts on the Phoenix are the same, except it appears they changed the chassis to a one piece with the rear suspension arm mounts molded in (no more bolt on metal rear tranny plate like the T3 had) which sucks because if you snap off a rear A-arm at the mount, you gotta replace the whole chassis
