The weight of a car has nothing to do with why BB shocks work better and are more consistent... AE RC8 and our car TQ SX8 race prepped both come out right around 7.4lbs (couple of the lightest cars out there) 100% complete but empty tank (of course it depends on motor/pipe/etc) and BBs tested faster on the track than our best setup on std shocks, with no fade in long mains.

The Hyper does look very nice, I like some things they have done.... Jeremy is a wheel, always has been, and for him to do well at the nats with a shoebox would not surprise me.

Remember - Driver always wins as long as the car doesnt break

you may want to visit the ofna boards, there's a hyper 9 forum for it, there's more people talking about it and more news, Rob from Nitrohouse is always answering questions and Tim Bump (designer) has something to say now and then.

Nothing good yet? I belive I saw in the new Driver mag the threaded shocks. The car was very dirty though as it should be and they said it did very well at whatever race it was just in.
