It looks like a bone stock Ultra MBX Comp. The rims, tires and wing has been upgraded. Like you said you are missing the front chassis brace and you are also missing the transponder holder, if you care to race. It is the 330mm width which isn't race legal nor is the engine. I am not sure what the wiring is all about unless some one had a fail safe wired in there. Its a great start though and can be made into a great race buggy or kept as is and bash away...........its very tough!

I hate the original battery/reciever box! Thats why I swapped mine to a different style, plus maybe just maybe in my mind it has a lower center of gravity(the Hyper8.5 box). If you like you can check out pics of it lower down in this forum.

The front brace that connects to the front top plate and chassis directly behind the steering servo, is the brace that is missing. You can buy the box I have at Nitrohouse or ebay, its a Hyper 8.5 box. Also be ready to drill some new holes to mount it and figure out something for a rear chassis brace (look closer at my pics).

Man, thats a terrible place for a battery...

Right next to the engine??

Heat is the enemy of batteries. Putting that right there exposes the battery to temps that can shorten run time and shorten the life of the battery it'self...

looks good except i have none of my tools. but i think a tmax battery box would look better and require less modding.
