I haven't had any problems yet but some other guys are... HPI/Hot Bodies is replacing all four cvd's to the people with the issues... but I called them and talked to Chris Lugo, he said to email him my Tower Hobbies invoice so they can have it in file... and if I have any future problems they will send me four new replacement cvd's... excellent cust service!!!

Default Hyper 9

I have got the chance, to run the hyper 9 and I just have to say awesome! The Car is more easier to drive and jumps very well. I got the Info that the Car is finished, but there are still small problems with the Arms. I think they will be available soon.

What kind of problems with the arms ? Think they would have all the tweaks and bugs worked out by now .

They've been trying different composites to find the best overall material...Some have been to brittle, and some too flexy...

I've heard they found the magic recipe, and things are going well...Hopefully soon now...

Ahh. I waited this long i guess a anither month or 2 won't hurt me.

I DO really think this 9 will be a winner.

They have got better with every model.

I still want one.

I guess that would mean they were not happy with the composite used on The 8.5? I didn't hear about any issues with that, actually never heard of issues with any of the Hobao arms, but i guess i haven't been following close enough. i know I never had any problems with my Hyper 7 arms, and My Hyper ST arms seem fine also, and God knows I crash more than a blind cyclist.

I think the hyper 9 is gonna be a great car I like me 8.5 alot and havent been running it that long the arms are good the bushings wear fast but they are cheap to replace the new 9 angled motor its different id rather they take their time work out the bugs so it wont come out andbreak like the team magic car so its worth the wait imho

What do you mean at times?!?! Id like to think I'm always wierd. If you ask me there are only 2 kinds of people in the world. The ones who are a little bit crazy, and the ones who are boring
