This is THE very first serious competition car that Traxxas ever made in order to pick a fight with Team Associated and Team Losi. It was launced in 1991. And it's an awesome construction - it looks like a 20** car! Wide, slim, long wishbones. And the plastic in rims and chassis look like nylon, seem to be very beefy and strong! The drive shafts are also very impressive, made from plastic - looks a bit like those Schumacher used to make.
I bought this car on ebay/US in december 2010 for USD 150 plus shipping. It came with a manual, which is extremely well made! It has a double body mount at the front, so I suscpect it has had a truck bodyshell or something before.
Bombshell! The car is METRIC!!! So Tamiya/Kyosho wheels, bearings etc will fit.
I managed to source the following missing parts:
-wing wire + mount
-alu wing mount (on shock tower)
-original, unused wheels (2,1')
-TBG repro shell
-original NIP decals and window masks
Thanks for looking! :-)

19th august 2014: Deal cancelled, as he suspects it's not a TRX-1 but rather a Traxxas Eagle LS... need to investigate further...
12th january 2016: And it was... so I sold it on ebay as a TRX-1 / Blue Eagly hybrid for USD 89 to a guy in New Zealand of all places :-)
