It looks to me like a graphite chassis Tamiya TA-05. With that 27T motor the car will get average speed, depends what speed you want you can go with a brushless set up maybe a 4000KV motor.

no its a team associated TC3, look at the steering rack!
chassis is not standard, could be a BMI? well worth 20 quid!

You will find the speedy instruction manual ont he associated page (english version) or LRP in german (the speedy is LRP Quantum Competition 3, the most powerful in the series and one of the best in brushed. Has Lipo cutoff too.
