Default Help me identify this HPI car

I just bought this HPI electric car. I was told it was a HPI Sport. I looked at the Sport on HPI's website and it doesnt look the same. The front bumper doesnt look the same in the picture as it does on HPI's site.

Is this car a HPI Sport or something else?

Here is the car:

I think so too, but that front bumper doesnt match.

Here is a pic of the Sport from HPI's site. Notice the different bumper?

How do you mean? what are you looking for? I did a thread on the Pro 1 which is almost the same car.

Pretty sure that is the optional bumper from parts tree A350. Some of the plastic parts trees were shared by some other models, not every part was necessarily used on the kit it was included with. Can't find the mini instructions to compare but it does look like an original part.

That one is the original RS-4 which has a gearbox on the rear. The Pro was a 2 belt car and was awesome at the time. I sold mine to buy a TC3 and was very sorry I did.
