Default suggestions on 2 buggies that i'm looking at

Hi
I'm looking at the ofna 9.5 pro and the ofna hyper. I'm looking for something to hop up and for speed and durability which would be a better buy.
I'm also looking at the ofna/picco comp 01 engine or ????? Can this motor be modified or hopped up or not ?where would I get the parts for it
Thanks
Jon

I have a 9.5 pro and Im very happy with it, I think you would be happy with either the hyper 7 pro or 9.5 pro, I think the ofna picco o1 comp is a killer engine. Did you get the piviot ball suspension with your 9.5 and c hub suspension

either of those is a good choice

i know more people with the hyper 7

but i think the ofna team drivers run the 9.5

i have 0-1 comp engine and you would have a tough time finding an engine with more top end

i really like it was easily tuned (for me at least) and runs great idles good etc i have not one complaint

i do recommend a pipe/header designed for bottom end power

if you are thinking about racing at all, i would get a kyosho 7.5. not the kanai edition, you can get a brand new one for like $450, or a used one on ebay loaded pretty cheap. If you are at a track it is much easier to find kyosho parts. you might look at the hot bodies lightning pro, it is just about a carbon copy of the kyosho, many parts are interchangeable. it's only like $350 with an engine i believe
