Default Can anyone help me ID this OFNA buggy?

Hi, I got this car today and was looking to fix it up but I need to know what it is. I need to get a center diff for it, shocks and a few other odds and ends to make it operational I think. Here are some pics:




Thanks
Dave

There is no MBX R1, only MBX Pro and MBX R2. Can you please take a picture of the steering knuckles, where the pivot ball suspension is? It will make it more distinguishable to whether it is a regular R2 or R2+.

Sorry I meant the side view of the rear c-hubs, it's 2AM and my mind is getting cloudy.

Okay, I got it. It's an Ultra GT LX, I hope you can find parts for it, if not many parts should still float around eBay. I hate Ofna for the sole reason that they have so many different buggies with very minimal distinguished differences.

You should be able to use any chassis/drivetrain parts from the MBX Pro/R2/LX, but you can't use GT specific things such as the A-arms and most suspension parts. I just checked eBay and someone does sell "kits" that can convert your Ultra GT to a MBX/LX.

thanks guys ,. Im still pretty confused as Im getting 2 different answers. The body is red w/ yellow and white flames and I've seen a few cars on ebay w/ the same body There is a sticker on the side of the body that says ultra MBX pro also.
the body looks identical to this one:
