Ok I got this buggy today and I have no idea what this is EXACTLY? Looks like a OFna buggy but the radio tray doesnt look like anything I can find online so far in my all day search! Help guys I need to find out on this thing! Also the previous owner said he called ofna and they told him it was a early model Pirate??? Thanks for any help you guys can give!

It looks like a tamiya to me, but I don't know. Does not look familar so to take a guess, Tamiya or OCM... I don't know what the older OFNA cars look like. Those steering knuckles look like OFNA...

I'll see what I can find.. I did some research like this before on a 1977 Kyosho DX...

SWEET!

An early Pirate? WRONG! ROFLMAO

Thats an Ultra GT LX buggy, only the Body Mounts tells me its likely a Blazer SST circa 1998'ish.
Looks like it has some upgrades too, aluminum front upper a-arm block and lower steering bell cranks.
Hard to say but it looks like its got a 2 speed also, either that and/or the front brake linkage has been removed.
Is that a Picco Sport .21 engine you got there? Looks like the previous owner spent a few bucks on it.
What cha gonna do widit? Rebuild and/or upgrade???
It currently has the KPS w/ 6mm axles, not everyones favorite but $100.00 will 'bout bolt on the most durable MBX PBS w/ 8mm axles or the latest LX-1 C-Hub Susp.
NOTE: Nearly every stock piece is still available at nitrohouse.com.
If you need any part #'s, just LMK.

Heres my ol' Ultra GT LX I dubbed the Monster Blazer GT.
