It's an earlier pic of the car from January indoor racing, but I still have it mounted the same way. This car is AWESOME! outside as well!!!! I used the personal mount that came with the car to mount the antenna. If you take an old piece of 12g. mtr wire and skin it you can use its rubber housing to cover the antenna wire til it gets to the mount.

Default Hyper 9E Antenna And Motor Wiring- Configuration And Receiver Placement.

Nice work Mike-
Where did you purchase the motor wire guide? I also like your placement of the receiver. This is truly excellent work.

use a hair dryer to soften heavy threadlock, using anything hotter will bind it for good. btw - i dont understand the 'HOBAO' name, is that the name of the company that makes it?

Yes, Ofna distributes two different companies. Hobao and Hong Nor. That is why there have always been two different platforms from Ofna. Right now it is the Hyper 9E (Hobao) and the Nexx8 (Hong Nor).

Did any of you tried both Hyper 9E and MBX6 Eco?

What are the differences between both?

I've owned a VE8, 808E, RC8BE and currently a Hyper 9e. I've driven a converted Mugen and also the Eco. The Xray and Mugen feel similar too me even though the Mugen has tons of droop and the Xray has a minimal amount like a Losi. The Hyper feels more agressive like the Rc8be. Both cars turn extremely well, but I feel the Hyper is a bit more predictable and controlable.
One big difference between the Hyper and the others mentioned is the layout of the electronics. The others have radio tray/boxes that are basically carried over from their nitro versions. The Hyper is narrow and has the motor and battery mounted as close to the center as possible and also has the motor as far back as possible and the battery as far forward as possible. This design, (which works really well) leaves very little room for the other electronics,when compared to other cars mentioned. But, if you like to be a little creative when mounting you receiver,esc, etc. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED WITH THIS CAR! I'LL RACE IT TIL THE HYPER 10E COMES OUT
