Man I really want to pull the trigger on one of these, but I'm worried about the class fizzling out and it becoming a shelf queen. My other alternative is 1/8 ebuggy but I'm having a really hard time justifying the additional cost. What to do?

Worst case, the TT shares a ton of parts with Hyper SC10 I beleive. If the class fizzles out, convert it to an SC truck..that class aint going away anytime soon

You can't go wrong with e-buggy too, but like you say is major wonga...

Starting with a Bump lightened chassis

-STRC-
Delrin spur
CNC Hex adapters
Graphite center upper plate
CNC stand offs
CNC front steering plate
CNC center diff bulkhead
CNC RR carriers
scrt10 bulkhead complete

-SNR-
Graphite servo plate
Graphite shock towers front and rear
Graphite lower plate

-Lunsford-
Titanium shock mounts
Front and rear turnbuckles
Servo to saver turnbuckle

Proline powerstroke shocks
AE long shock bushings
Elite RC motor mount
CVDs in the rear
SS screws
CNC Chassis braces front and rear
CNC Hinge plates all 4
Aluminum diff pins
DE skid plates
downforce black wing

Plus Im going to put bearings in the front steering, and install 6mm balls with screws through them on the front turnbuckle assemblies {also I'll use the entrie scrt bellcrank set up, I made bushing/spacers that fit in the bottom and lower the ackerman bar to clear the drive cup, it makes the front end silly smooth.

And I had to do a lot of playing around with the shocks to figure out the best way to build them for the tt, but the finished product turned out perfect and simple... {now I can do it in 20 minutes, but it costs a little over $100 to do it correctly...

The diffs, were easy, Ive done them a bunch of times, I coat the gaskets with indian head and double them up {the diffs are a little tight with one gasket when there new}, then I polish the thin washer that goes between the pin and oring, and fit the case with the drive cup by machining the rear face of the case {where the bearing sits} a small bit, kind of a touch and feel until its rite, taking off very small amounts at a time...and lastly I used 5000 weight in the rear and center and 1000 in the front... The diffs are super quiet and smooth...

Well, thats where I am so far, I got the shocks set up {tryed them on a friends tt for a weekend}, 3 brand new diffs built, and the steering done}, let me know if there is anything you can think of that I missed...
OK, well I finished this up Monday, and took it up and down the street a little yesterday but the real test was today, I took it to the track with the kids and there t4.1's... I spent a pack getting it dialed a little, actually ended up moving a lot around, and suprisingly the shocks were pretty easy to setup and they are awesome... I went all day with out breaking anything, until walking to the truck holding it by the wing, I dropped it on its face and finished the front shock tower off....
I am only running a 3300 540 motor rite now, but its still peppy, the truck flies pretty level, and the turning is great, I can see the tire choice is going to be critical and I dont really like how the bod mounts on these things, but besides that the truck is a beast...

I would say besides doing a real good job with the diffs, the shock and steering upgrades made huge differences...

That actually would work as I already have an SC10, so I would be able to run 4x4 SC class. Now this Team Associated die hard just has to get past buying an Ofna.... I feel like I'm committing a crime...

This might actually work to my advantage since I actually like the Hyper 9E the best of all the e buggies in terms of design. Maybe this will be a new beginning for me.

It was used and already soft, the original owner never sealed the graphite, so that makes them easier to break, I was going to buy another one and dounle them up. but thought it would be OK, and it probably would have been of I didnt drop it, but it was either that or my 4PK....

Well I had a good bash session with it this evening. I'm running the Sidewinder SCT combo and it's perfect! I did a little modifying to the ESC by soldering the 4mm bullets directly onto the ESC board. Makes things much tidier.
