Hi guys and gals, can anyone help me identify this model please?  I got it in a box of r/c stuff and it's missing/broken some bits but without knowing the model name/number I can't search for or order bits.

Any nuggets of information would be most appreciated.

Definitely Cat 2000 based - possibly Cat 2000Touring model
-
listed from 1994 on your list.

Off road car would have had slipper clutch from standard.
Not sure about that chassis - it's def not original Cat2000
chassis. Could have been that touring version had different
chassis - or could be (looks likely to me) that it is lower
chassis from Cat EC.

Is it an off-road or on-road model?  It has 4wd via a belt and 12mm wheel hexes.

Can anyone remember when we ran converted buggies as tourers and the Pug406 shell by Frewer was the one to have ? :O)

I had a converted Kyosho ZXR with a handbuild chassis (yep, me own hands) with kind borrowed towers from the Shumy at the time using the schumy micro shocks too. USed to be great fun....but got sh*t all over by Kev Moore and those preditor things...they where a bit quick in a straight line.

Oh the days !
