I was looking forward to seeing these in action until I saw the placement of the components. The motor and Battery being on the same side was a huge oversight in my opinion.

The CASTER Fusion Pro comes as a Kit.

Default My 2cents

+1 Hyper 9E
I researched buggys for weeks and ultimately decided on the 9E for compactness and balance of everything installed. With this set up you can run a large pack and retain excellent balance. With the confiruration the wires for everything can be extremely short for max effecientcy. I even shortened my ESC and servo wires to just a couple inches each to keep it tidy.

If I ran the Hyper 9e on the tracks in my area the ESC would be completely covered in mud.

So ? Some Lexan can fix that easy enough.

If thats the worst thing about it, I'm fine with that ?

that is a miss on the hyper 9e as far as no mud guards, but, I think if a manufacturer put alittle effort, you could make a lexan body that wraps nicely around the chassis raised areas to give it a seal.

baddassrevo: you would actually be suprised at how clean the inside stays considering it doesn't have mudguards, and I have ran mine on a pure muddy track. main thing that was loading up with mud was the area behind the pinion gear.

I wonder if the Tekno mud guards would fit.

Good idea, I'll look into that.

Going over your replies I lean a little towards choosing the Hyper 9e. I was actually more keen on the Losi at first until I found out that it does not use metric standards.

One or two questions regarding the Hyper 9e though:

- Will the following motor/esc kit fit: Tekin Rx8 BL 1/8 Sys 4030 BL Motor 2.5D 2050Kv?

- Is there any of the Zippy or turnigy 4s batteries that will fit this truck? I have yet to find out the size of the battery tray.

Btw - I like this forum. I have posted thousands of replies on Large Scale forums and seen many forums and this seems like a good place!

I know the motor fits cause I have one in mine. I dont have the car in front of me but you should be able to find a zippy that fits.

I did a looking searching for you and according to a post I found on rcmonster its 46x175.

You shouldn't have a problem fitting the motor in there, though I would go with the 1900Kv since you will have more gearing range than the 2050Kv in the vehicle. I can't recall, but I think the smallest pinion with the can diameter than Tekin has is a 15T pinion. So you want something in a slightly lower KV range so you can gear up if you need more top end. The car based on what it comes with appears designed to take advantage of Novak and Speed passion style motors since it has an integrated heatsink unit that fits on those motors and even has a fan mount on top of it. The heatsink unit also bolts to the chassis.

I've just read a long thread here where the Hyper 9e is discussed. Based on the advice given there I have decided to go for the 1900Kv.

Does anyone have the inside measurements for the battery tray?

I've done a bit of research and found the tray to be 175x46mm. The best fit and value for money battery if I want a 4S1P seems to be this:

What is your view on this?

Doesn't look unbalanced to me:
