Cry out loud all you want, it works fine.

Front upper and lower arms, keep a close eye on the engine mount bolts, the inner ones will grind through the rear driveline if it comes loose. Since they updated the front arms its a tank! With any buggy you should always have front arms on hand.

Default B-version

I tried the B-version mod this weekend, much more stable, Rear arms now straight and thicker. Rear seems to dig in more. More steering as well less push at corner exit. I will clean my buggy tonight and post some pics

The brakes are no different to any other buggy i had. In fact more responsive .

The wire ackerman is so direct and slop free i had slow my steering response expo.

At least the hyper wont flog out like the losi. I know as i sold mine and will never by another losi again. Owned every model since the xx in off road.

Good thinking let him drive the losi & the H9 i know which he would perfer.

Is the Hyper 9 2.0 more stable than the losi 2.0? Right now Iam driving the SH Z Car because its easy to drive and easy to be more consistant. I had a Losi 2.0 and I could turn a real fast lap but couldn't keep it consistant. I know a guy that had the Hyper 9 and it was squirrely. So my question is how does the hyper 2.0 drive compared to the losi 2.0 or the Z-Car?

I currently drive the Z car and had a chance to take easy's h9 gl for a few laps my take on it is the h9 is more stable and predictable then the z it felt real planted and hard to upset. I wasn't impressed enough to buy one though but that's just my 2 pennys
