It looks to me like knock off version of the HPI RS4. If that is the case parts will become a pain in the ass to get, look under smartech,redcat, and just ebay nitro cars (the non name brand ones) and find one that looks closest to yours.

Normaly id say no to the go ahead with a deal for those types of cars, but for 40 bucks you really cant go wrong.....plus there is always the slim chance parts from the REAL HPI RS3 might fit your car!!!
