Hmmm, how odd, I see what you mean, but it definately WAS on there a little while ago.

I'm liking the look of the JC body though

Hi Bob;
I don't know where the needles were set on mine. I just ran it by feel. I did play with clutch springs some though. If it's bogging off the line, try some stiffer clutch springs to let the engine get the RPM's up before the shoes engage. Only do this if you are running on a track that has some traction in it though, or the buggy will be darty and hard to control off the bottom.
It sounds from the pinch test and temps that the engine is set about right, so try the clutch spings and see if that works. If it doesn't, I would try the JP-1 low-end pipe on it and that will definitely help.
The S5 isn't a low-end monster by any means, but that is why I like them...it makes them easier to drive and be consistent with.
Hope this helps...good luck...

Brad

Try this clutch shoe, it won't glaze like the normal black carbon-teflon type that caused the bogging.

I'm thinking about getting a Hyper 8 and I'd like to know if you guys who own one would still recommend it. Or if you had one and sold it why.

The kit seems really nice, especially for the price (and with a decent pipe included). My other choice is the Jammin.

Thanks

I'm going on my second season with mine, and love it! It handles good once you get a good set-up on it, it's consistent and doesn't require major changes from track to track to keep it handling good. The parts for it are ALOT cheaper than alot of other buggies. It's alot cheaper to start with. It's very durable. It'll outrun ANY buggy if you can drive it. It also doesn't require a bunch of hop-ups for it to be fast. Just get a good set-up on it, and it's fast enough with the parts it comes with. I've NEVER felt like their was a race that I lost because I was driving and H8...lol.

That's just some of the things I like about mine. Their are 'better' buggies out there, but they also cost alot more to buy, and alot more to maintain once you've bought them...and some of the higher priced ones don't seem to be as durable as the H8.
I've driven just about every other buggy their is, and I'd keep my H8 over any of them.

This is just my opinion though! Good luck on your decision, and let us know if you have any other questions...

Brad

Well, I have a Hyper 8, tried it for 5 races and am now selling it. I jsut could not get the car to settle down. I tried different shock oils, springs, diff oils, set ups and even chassis designs. The car just didn't fit me or I didn't fit the car. It has great steering, is very durable and is definately priced right.

I was faster with the new Mugen 5r on my first run with it. It just suits me better.

That being said, I have a roller with 5 races on it, the stock chassis only has 2 race days on it (had an FR2 chassis on it). It has the following:
roller with stock and kyosho springs
3 bodies (1 practice and 2 nicely painted bodies, 1 run on 1 body and other body never mounted)
no clutch or pipe
Kortz mod to front end
new style plastic uprights
rear camber link mod done



spare parts for extra $50
3 new diffs (2 f/r and 1 center)
1 set universals
1 NIB tank
New front/rear arms
New CNC front steering knuckles

Thanks,
Casey

Default CHASSIS

Read somewhere here some guy tried the new FR2 chassis. However, we do not have the FR2(which I presumed is Front +2mm & Rear +2mm) type over here. Only the Front +4mm(F type) or Rear +4mm(R type) is available here ?.

Would appreciate some feedback from anybody who has tried any of them. Now with 4(including standard type) of chassis available, purchasing a set of light weight center aluminium drive shaft can be a headache if you don't have the exact part number.

i'm a newbie driving a Hyper8 Pro, bought it used, plan to replace the shock oil and diff oils altogether, meanwhile I plan to purchase something for spare like bearing, but I dunno how many bearings should i bought...

i. 8x16x5mm (how many pieces the buggy needs?)
ii. 5x10x4mm (how many pieces the buggy needs?)
iii. 6x10x4mm (how many pieces the buggy needs?)

I plan to get the bearings from Amains, is the rubber sealed bearing OK? They're selling 10pcs for 10bucks...oh yea, is there any special tools required to replace the bearings?
