Default Which Ultra 7 Pro??

Well, I have decided to get a Ultra 7 because it is economical for me and seems to be a good buggy for racing and bashing. Now comes the next million dollar question. I want to get a pro version (since I have no need for RTR) but have seen a couple different ones (ie. Ultra 7 Pro, Ultra 7 PCR Pro, and Ultra 7 Pro - R) what are the differences between the 3? I cannot find any information on the Pro-R eventhough it seems really nice and sells for an affordable price.

Any help would be appreciated.

I think that you are refering to the Hyper series of cars. I would take a look at the Sportwerks Mayhem. It's equiped very nicely and can be had as a prebuilt kit or with a decent .21 (this option cost's more then it should). I've seen the no motor cars for $359 is shops. The ones I've seen run very well, especially after doing a small mod to increase downtravel in the rear (dremel tabs on chassis)

Yeah I asked about what's the best bang for the buck. The Ofna Hyper PCR and Sportwerk Mayhem Pro.

Good luck with your Hyper Pro

Hope you find out the differences between all the variants - I've lost track of all the different US and UK versions.

But basically the one with the laydown servos, carbon radio tray, milled shock towers, torsen diff etc is probably the best way to go with the Hyper 7. Oh - and it goes as good as it looks.

Let us know when you've got one.....

Default Servos

What servos would people recommend for 1/8 buggies? I am not a fan of Hitec and have had problems with them in the past so want to stay away. I would prefer Futaba. I havea 9402 in my 4wd sedan currently. How would that be for 1/8 steering? Also how about for throttle?

if you like Futaba then go for either a 9450, 9451 or 9350 on steering & keep your 9402 for throttle/brake duty.
this combination has served me well for quite some time

9350 is what i have and they worked great however they have been discontinued and replaced with the slower but stronger 9351

the 9350 servos have an aluminum case which helps keep them cool which is supposed to make them last longer than regular digital servos

i also have used 9451 they arent as strong as the 9350 but plenty capable of performing the task required and they are faster

the 9451 has a plastic gear that stripped out on me after about 10 races (possibly my fault for having servo saver adjusted on the tight side) that was easy to replace and they other one i had worked flawlessly untill i left my car on with radio off and my failsafe was set full brake and it burned up the servo

sent the 2 9451 servos in for repair and it cost me $40 to get them completely fixed not a bad deal if you ask me

i too have had the small plastic primary gear break in my Futabas with sometimes Very Annoyong regularity

BUT with the gears being Very cheap to replace & fairly well available, the servos do work pretty well

in the UK we can get the primary gear for less than the price of a glow plug

unfortunately the cheap repair doesn't quite make up for the lost points when one does break

at least that is what you hear allot I personally dont agree but what ever.

1/8 is one of the most expensive classes of racing to get into hands down. You go through 2-3 times as much fuel as a truck and the engines only last about the same amount of time but are 2-3 times more expensive. As for breakage you really dont break to much but you do wear stuff out at a high rate an you end up spending a ton of money on that. Tires is the biggest cost at $60-$80 a set and allot of the time you can burn them up in a weekend and at big races where it is grooved up you will burn through as many and 5-6 complete sets.

I run allot of 1/10 truck just to ease my pocket book.
This is what info I was looking for in another thread......I was thinking about getting 1/8 scale, but thought 1/10 stadium would be easier $$$$$ wise, as it will be myself, and 2 boys running....

Tell Yannick Aigoin that ofna is off the pace.. he's the fastest driver in the world..

and 1/8 isn't as expensive as you're making it sound.. engines are comparable price and last just as long.. parts wear is amazing on my mugen.. there is only two parts I replace twice a year.. that's it.. everything else is stock.. with the right tire choice and a good driver.. tires last good also.. depending on the track

1/10 is cheaper.. but not to the extent that was stated

Been reading the thread......is 1/8 that much faster than the 1/10 stadium trucks? I'm just worried that I would get bored with .12 Nitro, and want to move to 1/8 after I dumped cash into a good stadium setup.....

If I went with a 1/8, what is a good kit? I don't want a RTR, as I want a good radio/engine......and I would rather pay more upfront for a good kit, then a cheap kit I have to just "hop-up" to be competitive.....
