Default Why does this Hyper 9 not have a slant engine?

I definitely like the idea of a more traditional engine mount. I hope that they give us an option.

Considering that it is still prototype... they may be testing both configurations... For all we know, there could be cars out there with a 15, 20, and 30 degree angle on the motor...

Exclamation hyper nine

the soon to be released hyper nine can be run with a regular head ...ie like the one already on your motor or you can buy an optional slanted head for your brand od motor if it being carried by ofna ,its not a big deal if you want to run the regular head, you do have a choice .in my opinion the slanted head just looks way too cool ..

Probably just the motor mount, I guess they are trying different angles and straight up to see if there is a difference

Well you can tell from the wing that it landed on the right side off of a jump so OBVIOUSLY the engine mount was bent to where it BELONGS!
