Looks like a Testors "Fast Ones" Vega Nitro Nightmare. I'm not sure of the year, probably mid 70s. I don't know a whole lot about the non-Cox stuff though.

Note the engine heat-sink. It's a large metal disc attached under the cylinder head. Simple idea! Thumbs Up

Here's another one at auction. I also found evidence of them being on esty and worthpoint, so they must be reasonably common.
Were they a tether car or just free running?

 Your car is called the Nitro Nightmare and is a tether car. I had one in the late 70's. There is a white nylon arm that about 6" long that attaches to the black chassis. http://thumbs2.ebaystatic.com/d/l225/m/mpmLGMxlOMDcAXpGqvoXi0g.jpg
