Hello my friends.
I live in Sweden and have found this marder on youtube.
Iám very interested in what mods he have done on this car.The car looks very wide and the suspension behave almost like a HPI baja.
The wishbone in the front and rear most be longer then the marder´s.
I have lookt on elconbone, but they haven´t got now bone like this one.And it´s not the XL bones.They don´t look like that.
Is there someone that recognize the wishbone on this car?
Maby from another modell perhaps.

I hope there are someone that know something of this car.I have email him on the youtube but have not got any answer.

i think ive seen this somewhere before, have you tried sending a msg to the person that posted it on youtube?
Yes... I have done that without any answer.

I think this car has a very intressting setup so I hope to find the info.

The wishbone is the big mystery !!! even the suspension..

And I hope we together can find the info of this car.Because I think there are more like my that want know.

Here we have bones to HPI.
1. OEM
2. FLM Extended Arm Conversion
3. FLM Stock Arm Kit
4. RPM
5. RPM

Elcon don't have to the front to hpi only rear,and they don't look like the picture I sent.

My opinion is...It´s not HPI´s wishbone.

Why should it be so hard to find the owner...:mad:

Hi,
I knew the guy that build that thing, He welded his own suspension arms for that marder. He even welded extensions between the dog bones to make them longer.

He was a real welding ace, But I haven't seen him for over 2 or 3 years unfortunatly.
