I'm not sure what chassis that is, but the ESC looks to be as big as my cell phone.

It's the second version of the Road Wizard that came with a either a Lotus 99t or Williams FW11 body (both from the 87 season, I think). This one has the Williams body. The original Road Wizard came with a generic mid 80's body that looked like a Williams FW09 body. I'm not sure what the chassis differences are.
