1/10 on road kyosho car, model UNKOWN

Hi, I have a 1/10 scale rc car, and I am not sure what model it is. I got it for free with the hopes of fixing it up for my fiance. Heres what it looks like~~~~
I put those rims on it, cause it had none lmao.
A model would be helpful as the rear end is messed up so I want too fix it. It doesnt look like that bad of a little car. I have everything too put it together, motor, esc, radio gear. I just dont know what this things called

I think all the optima's were metal chassis and off road, but I could be wrong.

I can't find anything that matches it, but it's clearly a kyosho.

I don't think its an on road, I think its an off road buggy. Looking at some Google images there were a few with plastic chassis

The tires on it are definitely on road tires, and the short suspension arms make it look more like an on road car than off road.

only one pic is working for me but ill do some checking . also does it have a belt from the motor to the spur or is it gear driven . thanks

it looks to be 4wd but is it ??? also it has another hole cut out for an aditional servo so it must have came out with a manual esc ( the old wiper style ) wich makes it an 80's era .

This is defintely not an Optima, I had one. It is an on road chassis based on I think the Ultima off road platform. They made a few, the only one I remember was a Corvette ZR-1.
