It looks pretty good. Of course, Kortz can definitely wheel any buggy around a track and look smooth doing it.

Still, I can't wait to get my hands on the 9!

Default Hyper 9

I am still curious about the angled cooling head. Will the kit come with one or is it just for looks? Will a standard cooling head work or will it cause it to be off balance?

The buggy works just fine without the angled head. There are no clearance issues with a standard head either. The angled head will be available from Picco as an option part. The head was made originaly just for looks, so it doesn't effect balance, but we did find that the head has more exposed area so it does cool more efficently then a conventional design.

Thanks for the info! I do have other questions but I think they will get answered when I can put my hands on one.

Tell me about it, my poor Hyper 7 REALLY needs replacing but I just can;t bring myself to get a Hyper 8.5 with the 9 seemingly so close.
