Only complaint is the back stills snaps out under power out of a corner.

The track was very loomy and will be better on race days i say.

Thanks to all that helped and Pm'd me.

Cheers.

I think the stock guide in the rear is just right if you are using the fiber brakes

They're supposed to be +1mm longer giving a total of +2mm width to the front, and stronger. they're more flat, instead of having that bump where the shock mounts as well.

they seem to hold up well on Kortz's car

NO REAR Grip is my problem and have tried everything.
Will try some more things next test day. Not even worth trying to race as its too much off the pace.
Hi!

I had the same issue:
- 5-4-2 diffs
- Front upper arm inside upper position
- Front upper arm longer position
- User thinner rear stab (2,2mm)

It will be great, faster then your 8.5.

A friend of mine went from the hyper 8.5 to the hyper 9 about 3 or 4 months ago,and i can definatly say that he was quicker with the old car than the hyper 9... He has all sorts of dramas getting it too turn on tight corners.

Really, I cant believe that.. I got my 9 about a month ago, after running my 8.5 for 1 year. Its 100% better in every department.. apart from durability.. maybe but it turn's on a dime compared to the 8.. I cant really fault it.. that is very odd he's quicker with the 8.. but a decent setup goes along way!.. very odd.. But, Mine is setup for my local track, As the top british Hobao driver.. John Hazlewood's runs there alot.. So have a advantage.. but yea very odd to hear that..

Ok I just wanted to report on arms since this has been an issue that everyone talks about, we have been testing and sending back arms back and forth to fix this problem, sorry that it's taking so long but to see what we have been doing to destroy an arm dropping a new car over 8ft. off the grond on the corners smashing them with hammers,twisting, freezing,sun heating then smashing them and have had interesting results. yes it's been taking a while but there have been bumps in the road to be sent back and forth to Hobao and Ofna let alone one of the bumps is Tim Bump himself analyzing the arms and the stress factors that he sees in the arms, I'm telling you i have changing arms left and right over and over again just so they can destroy it for me to take it apart and put it back to gether, it hurts to see a fresh car with no chassis scrathes just being dropped from the air and bouncing all over the place tires cut and new Proline wheels getting bent and never turning some RPM's but there's just a few more fixes and test before they become a running change.

Oh and with all this testing I've come up with another turnbuckle for the upper arm, use part number 36861 the Jammin upper turnbuckle, it's longer and will fill the gap in the arm so it doesn't blowout at the end of the turnbuckle, also another upper arm is also comming which is thicker but i'm still using the 36861 part to better the combo, now if you want to use the outside whole for a different setup, then you would need a new set of arms and use the rear turnbuckles from the Hyper 9 on to the new arms, that set up fill the gap compeletly but that not work on the inner hole that's why you would need two sets of arms.

-R2-, would it be possible for you to let us all know when the new arms are out? I suppose most stores will just rotate out the old stock into the new design, but maybe Nitrohouse can hook us up with the new design ones when they are available. Thanks, Andy

I don't always get to see the stock come in and sometimes items are on backorder and are filled right away so when they come in they don't give word sometimes I find out later when someone calls or responds online, like 29128 cnc front brace I just found that out and it's been here for a week or 29130 cnc 17mm shock cap set complete these items are in stock right now.
