Certainly appears to be some interest in 1/8 buggies at the moment...Harmony is getting rid of some MP7.5....Jet has no 1/8 in stock......the price of these Tawian machines are very appealing...........may have to do some more research on the net!!!

dtm, go for the hyper 7! local guys use either the 7.5 or the hyper 7. i think the hyper 7 includes an engine too! if i just have the extra cash, i would get one. parts for engine is good too (still hobao)..

We have The Dirt raceway out here in southern California as well, if you want to see some fast 1/8 scale racing, that is a good place to come and watch.

Anyone know how much those HN things go for????
hobao hyper 7 is a better choice in terms of price and performance. you will get torsen diff but price less then 3k.
