The JP FX series is basically JP's version of the P5, it has slightly different crank timing, but thats about it. The mod version is just plain ridiculous power...

Only in the hands of those who can't set one up correctly otherwise they're about 2 to 4 ounces heavier than a similarly equipped K3. Slow, must be a poor engine in the one you saw, drop any top engine in a 9.5 and it moves.
simply not true.. also, making assumptions about people will get you no where.. I know how to setup cars rather well actually.. have you ever put one on a scale? I owned a 9.5 when I started... it was heavy and slow.. with all the CF you can get on it.. my lap times dropped 8 seconds when I got my X5..

i personally like the 9.5 pro.just put a lightened chassis and kanai shocks on it and you have an awesome buggy.my dad has a kanai 2 and it handles good but i still like my 9.5.just my 2 cent

ntc3freak - Bulkheads house the differentials, hold on the shock towers, Blocks, arms, etc.

Ben - Even so, a 9.5 smoked almost everyone at the Worlds Warm-Up.

I would say a driver using a 9.5 smoked almost everyone at the worlds warm-up

just imagine how good he could have done with a better buggy

Ive seen the 9.5 in action and was not at all impressed I agree with warpig it looked heavy and slow

Are'nt you sponsored by OFNA, so I already know what car you think is the best.

My two cents buy what your local hobby shop supports best with parts. All the cars cost about the same to maintain.
