No, I believe thats a ZT50. Due to the 50 zip ties used to hold it together.

Im 99.9% certain that its a Flying Poi nt probe with a few nice modes (shock towers etc)

The car was big in Europe in the 80`s and early 90`s. I rember seeing ads for it proclaiming Euro victories at some point.
The store I used to work at sold a few and they were tough - real tough - but a nightmare to get steering well.

Some versions had the engine on the other side as well and I seem to have recolections of Duratrax rebranding it at som point with a blue colour scheme. I do know that some of the other Duratrax range is produced by flying point so it would be logical.

Just gogled it and found nothing worth seeing.

Zip tied servos was a common thing back then. My first 1/8th onroad (Picco Integra) actually had a zip tied throttle servo set up. I changed it to bolts after the very first race though.
