Default Help identifying a pancar?

Hi there.
I'm trying to help a buddy out by buying one of the rigs he's trying to sell.
The only thing I'm really interested in is his pancar, but neither him, nor I have any info about it.
He got it in a big trade bundle, and never touched it.

He wants $60 for it, the LiPo, and the servo (EDIT: He said the servo simply says "S8650", with no name brand. So I'm assuming it's some cheap tpro servo or something) which is conveniently pretty much my spending money coming from this next paycheck (I worked lots of overtime!)
what car is it, and is that a decent deal?
If that's a steal, then I might try and scrape together some more cash and offer him more
but if it isn't worth that much, I'll have to decide if I want to just help him out, or talk to him and see if he'll go lower.
It seems like a pretty reasonable price to me. I don't really have a huge need for a pancar, but I wouldn't mind having one. There's a bunch of well-manicured outdoor basketball courts that this thing would RIP on. I have some nice brushed gear for it, too. There IS also an onroad track about an hour away that I wouldn't mind toting my TA-05, and this thing to to go have some fun.
It'd build my onroad stable nicely, too, with my recent purchase of an M-05.

thanks!
the front arm mounts look VERY associated to me, but I can't seem to find any pictures of anything that matches.

It's a Speedmerchant of some variety.

Edit: Looks like a Rev5 with an old school AE block front end, a common change on Speedmerchants.

Thanks!
Still can't find a whole lot of info on it after a quick search, but at least I know what it is now.

there should also be an update kit coming, to convert that car to the newest kit if you're interested.

I don't actually race pancars, I'm just trying to help a buddy out.
This is going to be getting a layer of offroad chassis protector film, some old beat up tires, and ran in parking lots and such
I used to have a Robitronic Scalpel that I did the same with, but that thing was just too dang small.

there's a freshly paved stretch of road (a back-road, so there isn't much traffic) within walking distance that's been calling my name to do some speed runs with my TCs, too, so I'll be heading over there as soon as I get this running haha.
