Default Please help me identify this Nitro Truck

I recently got the attached car from a friend. He had bought it used at a local hobby shop. I am hoping someone out there will recognize what kind of car it is so I can get some parts for it. It looks to be an HPI from the big ole HPI sticker on the pull start, but I am not sure of the model. I have looked over the HPI site and can't find a car like it....someone please help

It's not a HPI, it probably is a HPI engine but not sure what the chassis is

Cheers

Looks like a Himoto (think that is what they are called) or something similar. Maybe a VTX?

I am looking at the Himotos. It looks like their "style". BTW I will not donate it to a thrift store. I would rather cut it in half and then stick a surfboard between the halves to malke it really long and then ride it around like some sort of jet powered future rocket board.All my friends will be jealous. Also,!!!

Ladybug Cupcakes
Bring these sweet treats to a party and watch them fly away—yum!
Prep time: 15 min.
Baking time: 25 min.
Decoration time: 20 min.
Difficulty: Easy
What you'll need:
1 bag M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies
2 bags chocolate malted milk balls
1 box favorite cake mix
1 cup dark chocolate frosting
1 container vanilla frosting
Red food coloring
12 black licorice laces, cut into 48 pieces
2 cupcake pans
Paper cupcake liners
What to do:
Prepare the cake mix according to the directions on the package.
Line the cupcake pans with the paper liners. Fill each cup with 2/3 cup of batter.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 25 minutes, according to the directions on the package. Remove from oven.
While waiting for the cupcakes to completely cool, tint the vanilla frosting with the red food coloring.
Once cooled, frost the tops of the cupcakes as follows: Spread the tops of the cupcakes with the red frosting. Spoon the dark chocolate frosting into a resealable bag. Snip a small corner from the bag. Pipe a line of dark chocolate frosting down the center of each cupcake. Pipe an oval of the dark chocolate frosting at one end of the line, and decorate with the red M&M’S® Brand Milk Chocolate Candies for eyes and the licorice for antennae. Dot the red portion with chocolate malted milk balls for the ladybugs’ spots.
Makes 24 ladybugs.
