The first thing is that car is around 8yrs old and if I remember correctly at that time Ofna wasn't a very big name in RC at least in North America.
The Second thing is that you have posted this in the Electric On-Road thread and the Z10 pro was nitro so you might get some better info if you re post this in the Nitro On-road thread.

The car is pretty old. There were electric and nitro versions. The electric car was very similar to a yokomo yr4 series car. They actually were very good for what they were.

info page from the oem manufacturer Hong Nor:

I once owned an electric Ofna Z10 Pro MkII and it was a very nice car. It appeared to have all the right stuff for racing but the quality was never quite right. The stock battery retention straps were a pain but the worst thing with this kit was a complete lack of parts availability. None of the local shops supported this product and buying from the USA was expensive, if you could even find parts.
