Looks like a CRC Carpet Knife 3.1, and for starters, as previously mentioned it needs the proper battery retention system (the cardboard won't cut it) and dampner tubes with ball link mounts. It also looks like it has some odd plastic "toy car" shock on it that seems to be almost fully compressed, too. A CRC DuraShock would be a nice addition. Looks like it needs a body, also.
It seems to have been put together from junk parts that someone had lying around. Good electronics in it, though. I hope you didn't pay TOO much for it, because it needs quite a bit.
