Yep, it interprets my lack of driving skill hand signals and translates it into raw 4wd SCT power on the track !

Ofna is only a distributor of both, the Hyper is made by Hobao, and the SCRT10 is made by Jammin.
They are different designs, Jammin is from the USA and Hobao is from Taiwan.

Methinks you're splitting hairs there Roman.

There are some differences between the two, but it's very minor. The only notable one is the Hyper uses pillow balls in the steering. Other than that it's mainly cosmetic..

I think Jammin Jay Halsey and the designers at Hobao would strongly disagree with you John.

They are different vehicles designed by different people, no splitting of hairs here.

So I couldn't help but notice this thread has slipped down the list - time to bring it back in to the spotlight!

The new 10.5 or boosted 13.5 rules have been going for a couple of months(?) now, and as far as I can tell the two options are competetive with each other...

I have taken the cheaper option and gone with the 10.5 and from a couple of days practice on the new track the extra power is awesome.

Just wondering what the majority of people have gone with at Ryde, 10.5 or boosted 13.5? Taking away driving skill, is either option shaping up as a clear leader or are they neck and neck?

After running boosted 13.5, I plan on running a 10.5 when I finish my on road duties in July. I doubt that I will be able notice much of a difference.

BTW I will have new body.

I have to disagree with evryone here. My 10.5 absolutely hauls ass. 13.5 has no chance down the straight unless you are running copious amounts of boost. I know my 13.5 boosted was so much slower.

A well timed 13.5 can smoke a 10.5. Well by smoke I mean have it nailed for top end and also have this surge of bottom end grunt. Its not as simple as putting boost up to max and timing to 55 deg, its also about setting start and finish points. having the right pinion and spur for the motor and also being careful with the left finger on the radio.

Besides it all counts for zip if you can't get it down to the ground....

Either way its healthy competition!
