Uhhhh.... yea, there is no way this truck has a 380 size motor ... It says it on horizons site too, someone just messed up in the editing, looks more like a 180 motor to me.

Looks to me like this is just a 1/24 torment/ruckus with new tires and body.
Not that thats a bad thing, I love my 1/24 torment, and these desert buggy style bodies look cool too. I wonder if they are going to bring out oil shocks for them eventualy...
