Default Unknown RC Car Circa 1985. Need help ID this one

I need information about this vintage RC Car. Aprox. 1985, but can't find any information anywhere... Sold as a grasshopper, but is not. Mark the wing and independent rear suspention. Kyosho motor on this can be a upgrade.

Chassis (not the body) reminds me of a Tamiya Falcon. Post pics with the shell off, please.

Nope, not a falcon.. I post a few more pictures.. The original colors are white and orange. The hub seems to be Tamiya or similar, and the wheels look a lot like the ones on falcon.

The car is a Tamiya Sonic fighter, relesed in 1988.
