It looks like it may be a Team Associated RC100 converted to electric. Not sure if Associated had a kit like that or if someone did it themselves.

That car looks like the late seventy's to me it looks more like a Leisure car to me. I could be wrong.

The car is an 1/8 scale electric made by MRP in the late 80s. Normally it came with Penzoil stickers. They also made one with a white body that was a promo if I remember correct. It should be slightly wider than a regular 235mm pan car and longer too. I have one that also came with the same transmitter and receiver. I'm not sure if it was a package deal with that radio or not. Search for MRP on eBay for parts. I've seen some parts and whole cars occasionally on eBay.

Yup MRP, get it running and stick it on a shelf. Finding parts would be uber difficult.
