Its a cheap knock-off of an HPI RS4 Nitro 3 shaft drive. They used to if not still sell on Ebay.

Bill it is lol

I think ur right about it being a knock Off. I pulled of the battery cover and the reciever says hispeed. Goggle it and hispeed xstr came up. I'm guessing that's it. The motor says xs-18 so I'm guessing it will be a paper weight for my desk or a I'll strip it and let me 2 year roll it around. Don't really know on road. If anyone knows Hispeed I guess let me know what you know. Thanks

Its a HSP, which is a Chinese OEM mass produced thing for the car park bashers new to RC. Parts are cheep and easy to come by. Kind of pointless trying to sell it cause its worth nothing really (you can buy one new for about 100 bucks), so you might as well drive the life out of it and then put it in the bin.

Thanks for all the laughs and roger thanks for that info. Had a few more questions and I'll stop bumping this thread. Roger you said mad produced but I can't find parts other than a oem site in America. I most likely will beat it around the block or sell it for 20-30 bucks to a local person at the onroad tracks. I cleaned it up real nice and looking at kinda makes me wanna get a more common name brand onroad. Any how the engine was bad with left over nitro that looked like it sat in there for ever. I striped it and cleaned it with engine cleaner. Not sure if it will run but one thing is holding me up. The flywheel has two clutch shoes with a spring wrapping around it. The spring seems broken. Is this type of clutch spring normal? Will my local hobby shop carry this type of spring? Can another fly setup work like one used for off road? A three clutch set up?
