No, it's too narrow for the hyper.

Thought I would share a body wrap I've been working on. They are for sale on the bay.

Finally got a chance to weigh my H9, and with Proline rims and rubbers, stock body, teknoRC mudguards with velcro, Turnigy 4S 5000mAh pack and a Tekin RX8/T8 combo I end up at 3623 grams

Is this ok?, seems a bit heavy to me but hey I am used to Nitro cars

I think your scale is off Vic. For instance ROAR legal is 3200g and it's really tough to get down that low without doing major things.

That's just shy of 8lbs, which is on the heavy side. My car with a 5000mah 4s is at 3476(7.66lbs) race ready. That's with my tank Losi speedo. I run a smaller 3300mah battery for qualifying runs, and some short mains. That takes 170 grams off down to 3306(7.3lbs).

With an RX8 and the CF chassis I should be able to get it down to under the 3200 ROAR minimum weight.

That's fairly avg I would guess. I pay close attention to tire, foam, and wheel weight. As well as batteries. My buggy weighs in at 3350ish rtr with HoBao Fire L tires, HoBao foams and Ofna ultra light wheels. That's with a sub 400 gram battery also.

@reracer, what have you done to keep the weight so low?

I havnt done anything to make my car lighter because I think you need to do some serious stuff to cut some noticeable grams..

Just weighed one of my packs and they weigh in at 591g

I would say his 3300 4s is close to 300g lighter than yours. That's over 10 ozs

-My 3300mah packs are 316g.
-I run the 16mm Jammin shocks with the aluminum post, which are lighter.
-I replaced all of the steel pivot balls with the optional CNC aluminum ones.
-I use as many aluminum screws as possible, and some titanium ones. Not as many as Kortz though.
-My battery box is cut down and some of the bottom has been milled out.
-I run a custom CF drive shaft with a uni front. It's the same weight as the stock aluminum one though.

Keep in mind that I have the optional wing mount,the EliteRC motor mount, custom rear chassis brace, both front CNC chassis braces along with a custom speedo/servo mount. All these things added some weight.

I am a happy Mugen driver, but I am also interested in trying out a Hyper 9e. If I buy a new Hyper 9e in the current version, could you please briefly list the hop-ups that I would need to have a durable buggy? Thanks...
