I'm not sure, you would think the chassis builder would put a sn# on it somewhere. I noticed you've been trying to sell it for a few years now, is that what's keeping it from selling?

Have you tried contacting Hendrix motorsports? Or, if its an east coast one. Go to the formula toy section on pirate and look for the the guy out east that was authorized to build them.

I have f-toy built by mtbrjon off pirate...it's number 528...I'm pretty sure he built that one because he was building 2 before mine..u should have a number stamped just below the hendrix gusset...I seen your rig on hardline it looks cool I like seeing more f-toys on the east coast...Jon and skonkerd are the only east coast vendors and I want to say the east coast rigs start with 500 and go up

I like the tsl a lot where we ride there not a lot of rocks they do great.
Been changing a few things on it last month or so put an fj80 axle in it
Put 4.7 gears in an flat belly skid plate and a few more things
I ride with two more f toys number 49 and a v8 ftoy.
Will look for that number tomorrow thanks for the info

I found your old for sale add that's how I know your f-toy lol and it does have the gusset with the x I'm talking about so it's not a homemade chassis and should have the number below it

Just got one for myself. FT117. I emailed mike@marlincrawler.com. i gave him the name of the original builder (from the reciept that came with it). He looked it up and gave me the number. He said each toy had a serial number sent with each one. It was up to the builder to affix it to the vehicle.
