Default Help ID this car

I was going through some stuff I had left in my parents basement from when I moved out years ago and I came across this, completely forgot about it(I know!).

Anyway, I know its old, but Everything I have now is off-road and I wouldn't mind having a parking lot basher. However the rear bulkhead right where the motor mounts is cracked, and its missing the rear wing. Every model I see has a rear wing that's all plastic and screws in, but I remember this one mounting with two wires that came down and were clamped in with screws. Also, all the ones I can find have the servo mounted vertically.

Just makes me not sure what will fit this thing. I'd like to fix that bulkhead, get a wing and get some rubber tires for it. Or if possible just get body mounts and put a normal body on it? Anybody old school out there that remembers this?

It may even be the F101...looking at the top deck I think it might be.

I think it's a Tamiya F101 with a Footwork FA13 front wing.
The F101's had the plate with three holes between the batteries and the motor pod. The F102's did not have this anymore.
Looks very standard.

So can I still track down parts for this thing? The motor mount for the f103 looks similar but they have an oval hole for the axle(adjustable ride high I assume).

I'm gonna guess that the f103 tires would fit? And maybe even the wing?
