Default ofna/hobao 1/8th racing

hey all: I've noticed that in some of the 8th nitro buggy race reports i've read a few of their team drivers are using the new hyper9 while some still have the hyper8.5 what gives. Is the hyper9 not widely avallible yet or do some hobao/ofna team drivers still prefer the older hyper 8.5 rather than the new hyper9? Thanks

Hyper 9 not out to the public, some team drivers were just more comfy running the Hyer 8.5 till they get the 9 set-up the way they like em. they all have em I believe, but they are not yet all racing them, hyper 9 is due to start shipping to LHS Mid- November

I've heard that the major reason some of HoBao drivers didn't drive the Hyper 9 at the Worlds, is because they prefer Torsen style diffs, and they don't have any for the Hyper 9 yet. So they weren't able to get the power delivery the way they are used to. So IMO once the Torsen style diffs are made for it, I'd be more than willing to bet, that you will see them running it more and more. Plus as they get more setup time with them I'm sure they'll realize that the 9 is Wayy more capable than the Hyper 8 is...Don't get me wrong...I love my Hyper 8.5, but I'm soo looking forward to the 9...

Anytime bud, and what Rob from Nitrohouse says is always dead on! He knows everything Ofna! he also runs all there stuff, so if you have anyquestions about vehicles at all from Ofna, PM Nitrohouse, (AKA Rob)

And Rob?!?! Why no Have fun Burn Nitro, on RC teach?! Is that Ofna signature only?, James
