Original or rere?

The Etronix is pretty easy to set up & has 15 model memory only problem I have with it is the actual sticks, the ends are for some reason sharp & jagged but they screw off so im gonna file em down.

Original or rere?
Shanks

Thank you for the comments guys @ Crash Cramer I've read on the forums that a few people are still using them to race with & I can definately see why :). @ Origineelclamebord the motor is re buildable but the car came in a rere box & came with a rere manual but im happy either way as this is a cracking car. The rubber seal on my MDC cap is perished & in 2 parts luckily I've not been on the dirt yet just tarmac ( Dirt is all from previous owner ) Gonna have to see if I can get any of those as all 4 of the shock seals are going the same way :(. Just checked all the screws & found that im missing one BB3 screw from the front steering mount but other than that I love this car :)

Just been looking at TRF stickers on the bay and found a set that looks like these. Search for these 'TAMIYA TRF Logo Sticker Set MM024' These look like the blue edged ones from the set.

Thank you for the comments, im really happy it's been confirmed the chassis is a genuine Tamiya one. I remember it was it was your showroom I read about the little C stamp Origineelreclamebord while I was drooling over your Dyna Storms :). I already have lots of parts ready to start the project.
