Whoever you bought the car from hoodwinked you. That appears to be one of those Ebay internet Red Cat cars. It is a Chinese company that makes cars that look like the popular brands and tout that the parts are interchangeable with said brands but when you break, you find out that claim is false. In my LHS that I work at in Dallas, we get folks that walk in with cars like this all the time. I can't tell you the number of disappointed/hurt faces I have seen when I tell them that my store doesn't have parts for their car and we can't find anything that will work to get them going again. The best I can tell you is to canvas Ebay to see if someone is getting rid of one cheap and buy up a few just to have some spare parts.

Sorry man, I did not want to have to break the bad news to you. I just hate that you were mis-informed about what you had which makes finding what you need to fix it a bit more frustrating. Good luck with finding what you need to get going again.
