Default NOOB...Please help me identify this HPI

Hey guys after scouring the threads on here, I can see that these types of threads are a dime a dozen, but what the heck, I need help. I traded a charcoal smoker for this beauty last night. It does run, however when I got it home I broke the pull starter cord, as it is my first nitro car and I treated it like a lawn mower. After repairing the pull start and it failing again, IO decided the heck with it. I will go for a roto start? However I have no idea what model of HPI this is, let alone what engine size or anything about it. Any help identifying this model would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, oh and it's great to be here.

The HPI logo on the side of the engine looks closer to the Nitro Star T-15, but then again I did not post that view of it, and I couldn't tell you the difference in the engine sizes. I just wanted to make sure before I started buying parts for it. Any advice on a starter box or the roto start system?

Thank you for the replies guys. I think it is the
HPI Nitro RTR RS4 3 Evo+ Touring Car. Except it does not have the Roto Start already installed. Could it be an older version? I believe it is the edition that came with the 1967 Camaro body? Also would you recommend a starter box?

This car is officially up for trade. I would like to trade for something that I can take on rougher roads or in backyards Preferably nitro, but let me know what you are willing to trade and hopefully we can make a deal.
