I personally like the look of the body.... I think everyone should just go ahead and get used to the slammed look cause I'd bet that it will be what most 1/8th bodies look like soon.....

Ugly?! IMO its the best looking buggy body yet.

I just finished a screw kit for the Hyper 8 this past weekend.

The car looks real good going through the manual. It has a few options on it that look pretty cool. I'm looking forward to seeing one in person and run on the track.

I received the car this week and all I can say is wow! The Hyper 8 Looks dialed in for sure. The quality and the fit and finish is great. Nice CNC machined steering knuckles, shock towers and suspension mounts...really nice looking stuff. I am going to run it at the Canadian Winter Nationals next week. I will post some more info after that.
Thanks........Dwayne Flodell
