Anyone know if the Matrix concepts rear tower requires the "B" version arms?
They only have one unspecified version listed on their site.

Pretty satisfied with the stock buggy, wouldn't mind some carbon towers though.

What's the general concensus on the requirement to run some sort of driveline protection with these 1/8 setups? I'm not hearing rotor seperation failures and I don't think I'm seeing too many guys running dedicated slippers or clutched setups?

Reason I ask is I have one from another setup that I was planning to swap over but wondering if its worth it? My issue with it is its heavy, complicated, point source of failure, as compared to the STD center diff.

Curious what you guys are seeing?

Hi Eric,
Jeremy Kortz feels the B version Rear Shock Tower and Rear Lower Arms Significantly improve the overal handling of the buggy, which is the reason Robert offers the B Version(Rear) Carbon Fiber Shock Tower.

PS. You can use the stock A version or the B Version Rear Lower Hyper 9E Arms With the Matrix Concepts Rear Carbon Fiber B Version Shock Tower.
With A version rear lower arms, use the lower row of four holes for the top of the rear shock mount. And with the B Version lower rear arms, use the top row of four holes in the upper part of the rear shock tower.

Ok let me clear up on the rear shock tower b version, I'm not sure if the Matrix tower has the two row of holes that our stock unit has but if it does then you can you can use both and a or b version arms. If you have the a version arms which have the bend then you would use the lower row of shock positions on the tower if you b version then you would use the upper row of holes. To make this simple if you use the lower row on b version you would have too much shock travel and would destroy your shock bladder and possibly know out your piston. The 29510 Hyper shock tower was set for both suspensions.

Default Center Drive Shaft To Possibly become A Universal Center Drive Shaft(front part).

The Drivetrain In The Hyper 9E is solid and extreemly efficient. Tim Bump explained to me the last time I saw him at West Coast RC Raceway in La Mirada CA, There will soon be a center drive shaft which comes with the front part of the drive shaft as a Universal, rather than the classic dog bone style/drive pin. I've been using the Hudy "Drive Pin Replacement Tool", to replace all worn drive pins in the Hyper 9E drive train- thus far. I do not know if there is a way to replace parts or rebuild a Universal drive shaft. If anyone knows, please share your insight and experience with us here. I do 100% prefer the Universal over the CVD. Primarily because of the way the cvd works and is held together by an extreemly small set screw. I'm very grateful Ofna opt for the simplicity of the dog bone type and now Universal type drive shaft.

I see no reason to run a(type of) clutch system on the motor nor center diff-unless you prefer the feel of the clutch system. Which clutch(or slipper) system do you have, where did you buy it?

Is everyone still running the stock body or has a tighter alternative been found?
I remember reading way back in the thread that the VE8 body fit pretty well. Can someone remind me? Does it sit tight against the side guards and how about the rear? I'm looking for a tighter fit

Nitrohouse's Tim Dunn runs a different body on his 9e but I'm not sure which one, give them a call.

I run the same body it the J Concept Losi 8 Nitro body. I will post some pics later.

I've been running for the past month a carbon center universal that I made and it been holding up very good. This was the 4th attempt and still holding.

Default Tim Dunn Was running the JConcepts Hi Flow illuzion for Losi 2.0 on his H9E.

The last time I spoke to Tim Dunn about his Hyper 9E body, he was running the JConcepts Hi Flow illuzion Body Made for the Losi 2.0 buggy. And, he uses several layers of Velcro to fill the gap between the body and the side guards. He showed me how he did this and it actually looks quite nice. I now run the same body but I'm running the Hyper 9nitro version, on my Hyper 9E.

PS. It's been over one month from the time I spoke to Tim Dunn at West Coast RC Raceway about his Hyper 9E, it's also possible he's now running a different body. Tim often Answers the phone at NitroHouse and or you can certainly ask for Mr Dunn when you call, if he does not answer the phone. Keep in mind there are two different Tims working at NitroHouse so be sure to ask for Mr Dunn. Tim Dunn also has a nick name, but I'm not certain which two letters.
