Default Kyosho ID Help

I picked up a huge lot of RCstuff off craigslist a couple weeks ago to try and make some money (and keep a few for myself of course), After hours of googling, ebaying, and checking out rc forums, I've pretty much figured out what most the cars I have are. This kyosho on the other hand im kind of stumped on, What you see is all that I have for it except for a KOProPo Transmitter , and a modified HPIbody to fit it. It looks like its 4wd but missing the belt or chain to drive the front axle, any help would be appreciated, curious as to what the model is and the year or years it was made.
thanks!

Nope, just the regular Optima. The Turbo Optima has a plate running along the bottom instead of frame rails.

   Turbo Optima also had sway bars.  That might be an Optima, a Javlin, or a Salute. They all were the same under the body. Still have my old T Optima.  Good car in it's day.  Heavy, though.
