It looks like a hopped up HPI Sprint. The shocks definitely look like HPI.

Actually looking at the position the servo is sitting I'd say it's a HPI Super RS4.

Send HPI an email with a pic and see what they say.

Like you say the hubs are odd......must be a pretty old model (late '90's?)

Looks like an old HPI RS4 or a spent out Cyclone. Good luck getting parts for either. Bone it or toss it. It looks like trash, sorry. Good find though!!!

No - it's an HPI RS4. Junk it, bone it. Done. Again, nice find though. If you go on ebay, you can restore it. It may take you a decade to find all the parts for it, but MAYBE you have a vintage shelf queen. It's all up to you . . . .

All that purple made me think of the old HPI car. When did that kit come out?
