Default OFNA Hyper "X" TC

Hi all,

I was looking through some old magazines and found an old article on the 2008 Byron on-road event. I saw that in 1st place was some guy with something from OFNA called the Hyper "X". I looked on OFNA's site and have found nothing on it. Was it even released? Is it even in existence? I need help. I got an old MTX-3 I'm looking to sell, but I'm still interested in nitro TC racing at my local track, and plan to race there in couple of years or so. Thanks, guys.

I've never heard of that car. Maybe it was the Hyper GPX4 as that was the only other car produced. It's pretty decent for a parking lot ride. I see your in Naugatuck. What track do you go to? I'm in West Haven.

I know for a fact it wasn't the GPX4 or whatever. It said right in the article that it was a new car from OFNA.

I go to Controlfreakz in Chaplin. Great place. Owned by one of the most successful Kawasaki dealerships in New England. The owner spent $9000 for the drivers stand alone. Has a gigantic on-road and off-road track. This is the only place to race in CT!!!

Those updates may have made it into the late 2008 GPX4 models.
The GPX4/ (Hobao) car was available in 2007, and kits were still being sold early 2009. Don't see new kits available from Nitrohouse now, just parts support. Haven't seen any new 1/10 TC sedan offerings from OFNA.

If the race was Byron's challenge at Leisure Hours Raceway, I remember it. Jeffrey Lin was driving a 1/10 TC and 1/8 DM1 Spec.
