Looks like a Champion set up with an X-12 arm.  These came out around 93.


A motor is only as fast as the chassis it's in.

The chassis could be an early Eurosport or GT-12. I sooner think GT-12 because the motor is a C-can, but I've never seen a chassis exactly like this.

Thanks guys I’ll get better pictures when I have it in hand. Atleast narrowed down to a GT12 with champion C can.

New to me, but nice, with some English 1/32 Flexiboard influence but I don't think it was designed for a C can.

 

Look at the spacer tube under the pinion and the rear motor brace angle, maybe designed for a smaller motor, perhaps an early cobalt can before straps.

I noticed the motor spacer too I’ll probably do the same thing to shoehorn a FK type motor in.

It would be a good candidate for a brushless motor...

Agreed !! Would naturally have a nice Low motor angle.

Just needs the addition of a Suitable Motor bracket

 

Definitely Not designed for  'C' can and very much reminds me of British style chassis :)

Heres some better pictures after a quick clean up. Seems pretty well built. looks like the sunburst guide is milled down. track it raced on must have had no braid recess.

It does look nicer cleaned up! Now I notice it has inboard gears. It should have a lot of flex built in, but I have no idea what motor it was built for. It still looks like an old Eurosport of some sort, but the motor box is huge. I wonder if it once had a piece/plate that fitted a can around the inside of the inboard gear, but it was removed when the C-can was installed? Whatever it is, it's a nice chassis.

Looking at it closer the already big motor box is ground in some areas for clearance so it also probably had a D can in it too.

By any chance did this chassis come from No, California? In either the late 80s or early 90s they had a C1 class. I wonder if it had been a chassis made for that class. When we started a C1 class here in the Northeast during the late 90s. motors were ceramic strap cans with Cobalt 12 arms. Sizewise, some were a bit bigger than a C-can, but smaller than a D-can.

Looking at it now, I have some Older Camen strap Cans that were for older, longer armatures, that I'm thinking would be a 'neat' fit in that chassis. :)
