Default Need help trying to ID this buggy!!!!

So I got this buggy and a red cat off a guy who doesnt know anything about them, I looked for a week, went to different websites and looked through models and instrucitons trying to figure it out with no luck, I pretty sure that it is an Ofna but can not confirm. So if anybody out there can help me out that would be awesome.

I thought the same when i looked up the mbx5 then looked at mbx4 nope the 4 had a pivot ball suspension setup they did have a knuckle setup as well but the diff cases are different and the rear chasis brace mount was different still.

here is a pic of a gs storm I found

That's no jammin there ware way too many differences I own an X1 (X2 uses majority of the parts)

I would agree with the GS might be a slightly different model of it seeing the front brace looks a tad different but the rest looks spot on.
