looks like OFNA Hyper 7 PBS or possibly violator .... looks like someone just changed the aluminum parts to orange. .... take wheels off, that will help more narrow more.

I think it is made by a company called robotronic and the buggy is called a protos v1,

been looking at their v2 which still uses the same front upper arms as your buggy has,

I have an ofna mbx with the pb suspension, was thinking the same but the orange is throwing me off, the yellow side skirts too.

I'm pretty sure it's the Hong Nor version of the Violator called the Speed 9.5. The only difference between them is the orange anodizing. It seems the PBS front suspension may have been either an earlier or later version. Mine had C-hub suspension, but various images on Google show it with both.

Upon further research, the PBS was an upgrade.
