Default Hyper 8-port race .21

Any one run this engine in an 1/8 scale buggy? Any thoughts on aftermarket pipes? General performance.
Thanks

I have it with the Ofna 053 pipe. Really crappy low-end power, but good top-end. The engine is really sensitive to weather changes so you will to retune the engine constantly to keep it running. I'd recommend something else for the 1/8th.

I ran the Hyper Team buggy yesterday and was really impressed with the overall performanec. The engine seemed to have lots of power to handle the big jumps and lots of top speed down the straight and through a sweeper. Nice job on Ofna's part building an inexpensive 1/8 with great performance. I will be racing in an offroad series this year so I will keep results posted to keep people informed about the buggy and engine.
Thanks......Dwayne Flodell
