To me the car looks more like the hyper7 than the jammin it has lower towers and shorter shocks blah blah. I like the jammin better but hey Paul Colemen has to eat too.

It's nothing like the Jammin' car..HoBao and Jammin'/Hong Nor are two separate companies.

This car has been in the works and from what I've seen, looks really good.

Looks like a nice car. Don't really care for the body and wing though. But the hyper 7 is a good racer this should be even better. I want to see the airfilter in person, I kinda like the slimness of it.

Watch this clip of Paul Coleman driving the Hyper 8. It looks like the Hyper finally handles the rough well. This track is silly rough!
