Not easy to tell from these not so detailed pictures. Maybe a funny question, but are you sure it is a genuine HPI Baja? Did you bought it new? I see a airfilter that might not be the best, seems a bit asthmatic with maybe not so good filtration as with a foam filter with prefilter on, which can lead to a premature wear on the engine.

The exhaust is looks like the newer hpi exhaust (but who knows lol) ....that thing on the roof also comes on the sc an t models (hpi)but not the stock baja .so who knows about that part ....my king motor came with that guard/handle thing.....the gear cover should say hpi on it ... Did it come with a radio? Check the hpi web site and look at the radio box . The roven/king motor radio box looks a bit differant



Oops I jus reread the post ... All u have are those pics my bad... Well I'd say clone lol ....but that tube of shock oil in that bag is hpi lol
