Are you sure it is Kyosho? It looks like a HPI to me.

It looks a little like a Kyosho TF3.

Chassis is unusual - is it 1/10th touring size or bigger? I wonder if it may be an electric "superten" of some sort?

EDIT: I think it may actually be an upgraded TF2 - saw one on a google search that looked the same.

Looks a lot like something from the Optima Mid series of cars... here's a pic I found, notice the similarities...

Looks like I wasa wrong about it being from the Optima series... found this bottom view pic of a TF, and I'd have to say the bottom deck is looking like a dead on match...
