The hyper 9 was the most innovative buggy to this day. Wish they would bring it back

I never really got excited by the H9 - it was at the time a pretty serious departure from the norm - for sure. I think of all the issues that were changed about that buggy - the WING was my biggest issue - LOL.

Im still stuck on the 8's as my favorite.

Had a 9 with a Bump CNC chassis [ nitro ] and tons of spare stuff - sold it off to a friend - who will COLLECT it on a shelf.

If the said buggy is in fact introduced from Hobao would it be a problem for you speedy2 to officially open a thread on the electric offroad section on the forum

Former RB driver and has the fastest lap, doesn't seem to have gained pace but the Baldo brothers are the fastest most of the time.

From seeing other images, seems to be the nicest RTR I've ever seen. Maybe because it's an actual RTRa instead of just a regular RTR.

I have it.. runs very well so far.. i am a shitty driver so i crashes quiet often (not hitting wall crash).. normal plastic parts here and there.. but the car performs very well for a RTR. definitely worth the price.

Call me crazy but ive always liked the look of the OFNA/Hobao/Hong Nor buggies.

Ive had several opportunities to buy old hyper 7/8/8.5 and 9's but never did....they always had the reputation of being fairly sturdy.

For racing, id be more inclined to stick with a brand thats a little more solid and has parts on the shelves.
