Whas is that stuff I would change? or should I just step up buy a kanai 2 or 3 or the 777 or wait till that jammin buggys out?? If any body has a kanai roller even in bad shape that I could rebuild let me know?

i think your idea of upgrading your hyper is probably a pretty good idea

the list of stuff you had mentioned would all be able to install in another buggy later anyway

a good radio and good engines will always be usefull no matter what car you have

and while the hyper may not be the best buggy out there it is 1 of the better ones IMO and you may be able to get some more time out of it before you upgrade

The Hyper did take TQ spot at Worlds going on right now. Not the most expensive buggy, but as capable as any other out there in the right hands ;-)

one thing I am seeing with my Academy SB is that you don't have to be expensive to perform is the platform is sound.

I would probably go with your upgrade idea and work on your driving too. You will get a big kick i think beating guys with the high end ( and high dollar ) vehicles with your RTR.
