That looks like a really old OFNA car with maybe some Yokomo parts on it.

Yokomo yr4 m chassis. had one. m2 had the adjustable battery trays and micro shocks. looks like it has a solid yr4 m upper plate. my bad thats an m2 with different shocks. the m has the parallel battery trays the m2 has the offset trays. looks like an aftermarket bottom plate though.

Its not a yokomo there might be some yoke parts on that but its mainly an ofna car or even the GM car that was based off the ofna Z10. You can tell by the upper arms there was never a yokomo that had upper arms they always had camber links.

it's definitely not a Yokomo. In the YR-4 era, the front and rear bulkhead uses 4 each of the imperial size screws to mount to the chassis. what's in the pic looks more like a M3 size screws mounting the front and rear bulkhead to the chassis.

plus the upper link on any variation of the YR-4 is just a simple tie rod with ballends.

In Europe this car was called the GM-Racing TC4 Pro. I raced it in the Fibre chassis version in 1999.
100 % sure!
You can read GM-Racing on the bumper too!
