Default Help identify please

Forgive me if I have done this wrong but I think I have attached an image of an RC car. I got this one free in a deal I did on another. I am looking to get it running as figured there is very little wrong with it. I am trying to identify the model so I can purchse some parts. I believe it' a himoto but I can' seem to find any the same. Maybe it' been converted to electric from nitro? But the chassis has battery slot. I can' seam to find a himoto electric with 2 shocks per corner.

thanks in advance

looks to be a monster truck version and retails for around $130 online including postage

its a money pit....... my boy's have one each and they suck

weak points, rear suspension compresses to much bending the dogbone
front dog bones are easy to eject in light crashes
ackerman rod extremely bendy (self steers)
tiny rocks can easily jam up the ackerman bar
gearbox sounds like a coffeegrinder and overtime fills up with dirt and crap
Upgraded CVD shafts use a weak bendable set pin
wing mount adjusts it self with each roll over
version 1 alloy shock towers are softer than plastic
pinion gear is made from a cheap alloy and does not last long
servo saver too weak
stock servo struggles to stay straight and requires a lot of micro management
handling,...... its terrible. in stock for there is alot of understeer issues
