looking at the chassis plate, wheels and front foam, im 99% sure thats not a HPI Pro D but one of the R2 knockoffs. Have one of these (present) for drifting, all good till you need parts, then the fun and games start

Default Pro D Drift or HY

If it's not an actual Pro D Drift which you can tell by looking at the top of the battery strap it should say HPI, then it may actually be an HY 1/10 Assembled Rolling Chassis Drift Spec. Seems to be an Aussie product. It's 98% compatible with Pro D parts and looks just like it but does not appear to have the HPI logo on the strap.

Sorry about the lame link but I just registered after a 12 year hiatus from the sport so I don't have enough klout to post actual links yet :-)

The HY 1/10 is the same knockoff thats made overseas that R2Hobbies sell, unfortunately i was silly enough to purchase the r2hobbies one a few years ago, and another drifter purchased the HY1/10. When we both couldn't get parts we stripped them down side by side and worked out the parts are identical. There both really inferior compared to the Pro D
