Carlos, you should get a sponsorship from Hobao, as you seem to be the only person I know who is sticking up for this phantom Hyper 9, that just never seems to arrive. doesn't it piss you off just a little that every piece of info coming out of Ofna seems to be false? First it was End of Summer, then promised by the middle of September, then they changed it to End of October, then it was guaranteed by Nov. 26, now it's customs holding them up......I give you credit brother. I lost my patience months ago. I hope for your sake that the Hyper 9 is the best thing ever created and you are rewarded 1000X for your loyalty and patience...For me, I got so much mis-information that I Just dont want to be bothered anymore

I remember a similar case... the Odonnell buggy, it got pushed back a lot of times, but look at it now, it's a great buggy!, but I'm going to stick with HoBao, if the Hyper 9 is delayed to 2010, then I'll just buy another 8.5 and wait for the 9 I'll be patient.

I remember they said it was due on the summer but I don't remeber anything about a reease on mid sept or end of oct? maybe I'm wrong, dunno.

and when they said they were going to get it on the 26th, that didn't mean the H9 was going to be in stock, they're just receiving them from Taiwan, so hence the customs thing, then after Ofna receive the first batch the distribution starts!

I thought part of the hold up in shipping was waiting to get rid of the orange parts. At least I hope so.

As for me I got turned off during the big build up waiting for the special stuff to appear behind the door. Remember that. Turned out its the same BS info that was available for months before. Have not been real excited since.

yeah I remember that, but according to Nitrohouse what we saw before the countdown, wasn't supposed to be shown or seen by the public, it was a mistake on the website, that's why they took the link off, then the 15 day countdown began and showed what some people had already seen.

I find the orange trim rather attractive. The rims too.

No they won't, according to a team Habo driver. Actually the orange anodized parts are the reason for this last delay. I guess the final production buggy was shipped to the states for its final approval, and was rejected because of that orange color. The final Hyper 9 will have no orange on it.....

hmm... I think that's what I was trying to say?
