Looks like an older HPI car for sure.
Are you sure you want to invest more money into it.
1> Parts could be very hard to find<break a part, say a front arm, or shock tower>, and you could be screwed. Rebuilt engine, but no availiable parts to repair the car itself
2> Parts for the engine would cost more than the car is worth.
3> Lots of advancements in the 10th scale on-road cars sense that car was produced.
If you do insist on getting it up and running, you might be better off
buying a complete used engine.
Just something to think about.
