How bout skid plates...has anybody used these...or something different...? I noticed the rear is especially worn down...from landing in the flat too much on the big jumps.

Does anybody know where to find completed setup sheets for the Hyper 9e online? I know I could transfer the info from nitrohouse...but I was wondering if this has already been done...or does anybody else have a setup that they like to use for particular track conditions?

I didn't have any luck searching this thread.

Hi guys, I have decided to get a 9e I am reading the thread as fast as I can but was hoping someone could confirm a few things:

1-is there an A and a B versions of the front and rear ends? What is the quick version of the differences?
2-What versions come with the new kits?
3-is there any need for the alloy front steering plate OFN29134?

Thanks very much

Hey dan I think that there is only a b backend (shocktower and lower arms)
The front alloy mount myself i would say no need( just bling) but perhaps look at the rear (webbing over rear diff) and front cnc brace
As for the versions I think that the latest kits are the latest versions

Anyone please quote me if im wrong

Hey thanks for the reply Do you mean by "the webbing over the rear diff" the top brace over the centre diff? I know there is an alloy part for this.

What about the alloy rear hubs? Has anyone broken them or is that just bling too?

This kit seems to be pretty solid from stock and not need many upgrades, is there anything else I should invest in besides the front chassis brace and the rear one?

Thanks

Jeremy had killer runs all weekend not once did he need a turn marshall, as the track came up so did Jeremy in laps times going faster and faster no major changes to the car throughout the weekend just general overall looks and cleaning of the car the Matrix chassis makes the car look so smooth in cornering and thru the rough section short shoot, floats so much better with the springs and has the kick on power out of the corner, Jeremy's battery power is a 4s 25c he says he likes the smooth 25c feel but the light chassis makes feel like a 40c in there. He said he only pushed the pace a couple of times during the 10 min race when Hartson was getting to the 2sec. gap then step up until Harston rolled it then back on cruise. Now with good momentum heading the the Nats. the defending champ feels a whole lot better that the chassis is giving what he needs to make the pace for another chance at a back to back win.

I think I speek for everyone when I ask for somebody to please post setup info for Jeremy's car.......springs oil weights chasis caster camber etc.

Mine is possibly going to a new racer with a lot of potential and I would like to sell it to him with a top setup on it. OR if mine does not sell I will have it set up perfectly. Thanks in advance for every bit of help you can give!

Yes, you speak for a ton of people. We would all love to have access to people's setup sheets for this awesome buggy...including the different setups between the "A version" and "B version" rear end.
