Yes, it is a Tamiya FW14. Tamiya used that base chassis for a number of cars.
Fairly strong. Depends on how 'rough' the tarmac is - it uses foams and providing you have enough ground clearance it should be okay.
There are upgrades available - some by Tamiya, you have to do it bit of searching on that.

They are awesome cars and that is well worth the money. If you put a 19X2 in it make sure its totally dry when you run it otherwise youll just end up pulling doughnuts. Also the acoms servo would be better being replaced with a better one, possibly a ko digital one as its response is probably not quick enough for a 19t motor and you may end up in trouble. Bargain at 5 though!
