Definitely NOT an HPI Micro RS4 as they used a single belt drive, not a shaft.

Yeah, the rtr car doesn't look like it does have the "x" on the cover. The Xray shaft is natural and not blue also. But the big difference is shock mounts and upper arms are real different.

Hello,

Thanks for the replies guys.
After some comparison it does look a lot like an upgraded Nanda NRX-18.
Parts look similar except for some CF bits.
Is that a castle motor?

Castle brushless motors are green, but it is hard to be sure from your pictures as the motor is obscured and hard to see.

It looks to be a castle CM20. Not sure there is an easy way to tell what KV it is.
