Default Identifying a used Futaba transmitter

I bought a used RC car that came with a Futaba radio system. I doubt that it came with this radio and I would like to identify the radio so I can obtain a manual for it. I may be able to figure it out given enough time, but a manual would help considerably. For example, if I am reading this correctly, it has +80 expo on the steering and if it is the same as airplane radios, this would make it really fast around center which would make it almost uncontrollable at speed. Maybe I am reading it wrong, so I need a manual. The only thing I can read on this transmitter is "FASST" and "MAGNUN". Everything else is in white lettering and is worn to the point that it is not legible. NEED HELP

Start here

and look for something that matches. Try 3PKS first.

Thanks, grotto2. I was successful in finding the radio in your list from the FCC ID number on the radio., It turned out to be a T3PM-24G. From there I was able to find the manual. All is well.
