Default ofna/hobao@'08 ifmar 8th buggy worlds???

hey all: Does anyone know who will be on the ofna/hobao team driving the new hyper9 at this event other than jeremy kortz? Also why the angled motor on the new hyper9 is it for less wind resistance and or better ballance? Thanks

I have been following the Hyper 9 since its inception. I was always a big fan of Hobao's products, I"m not sure who else will be racing it at the worlds besides Jeremy, but I do know that they angled the engine for a better center of gravity, and to bring the weight closer to the driveline for more balance, seeing as though the engine is the heaviest thing on the buggy. I have been getting mixed reviews on the actual prototype. Harder to work on, harder to get to some parts, harder to tune your engine since its angled, the rear brake is not in a convenient place, lots of parts breaking, blah, blah, blah. I could not wait for them to get all the bugs out and finally release it, so I went with the Xray 808 instead. I'm still all over it though, and when it comes out I will definitely consider adding one to my collection

From reading articles about the races jeremy seems to be extremely fast but they alsways say that he has engine problems ... Could angling the engine be the issue???

I know...bradley busted a servo or something sucks he was looking good during the quals...can't believe the losi guys both flamed...they were all running tight though for a little while..and then truhe bobbled and fell back so it was just drake and kortz...then drake flammed and truhe came up and then he flamed leaving kortz to finish off bobble free..it was a pretty exciting race to watch early on
