Did you do some drilling to get that battery tray on there? Is it the older tray or the new V4 tray?

Thanks for that. Do you find these better than the Ofna grey springs?

Yes the car is much more consistent and stays planted better. Even better when you combine with the Nitrohouse tapered pistons also.

Lately I have been pretty fond of blue fr and blue/grey rr. Of course track conditions play a role in this. The car seems to work better for me the stiffer I go with it. I will probably end up with purple fr and blue rr when we get back outdoors. Not sure yet though.

Maybe I could buy a Savok servo like you, because your buggys brakes were locked up after you hit that wall at full bore...ROOKIE

The Rc8Be 14 5-22 run was a second qualifier and a 3rd place finish in the main. The Hyper 14 5-20 run was a T.Q. and an A-main win!!! Don't like bragging or braggers, but this car rocks!!!!

Default Good Deal ?

Looking at getting a used Hyper 9 with a Mamba Max Monster ESC and Mamba Max Motor ( kv ? ) , XP Servo , 2 sets of tires and rims, spare parts , and hop up chasis braces for $500 . Is that a good deal ?? The truck is about a year old . This will be my first 1/8 th scale . Is this a durable truck ?? Is this a race worthy truck ? Most of the guys at my local track seem to have Associated or Losi's .
