    Looks good, hope it isn't gonna have a silly price tag. I like the new brace design. Ticks all the boxes, 17mm shocks with 4mm shafts [X(]? Gief electric version nao

    RE: ofna hyper ss



    I absolutely LOVE the body design on it. I've not compared the specs to the 2012 Hyper 7 (which I own)....TowerHobbies has them at $369.00 (they are SOoverpriced). NitroHouse has them for $309.00

    I'm with Foxy in that I like thebrace design. I'll be curious to read reviews on it. The orange is interesting....slick looking buggy all the way around.

    RE: ofna hyper ss

    Can this be raced or is it more of a rtr/basher buggy?

    RE: ofna hyper ss

    I would imagine it could race decently, but being a lower-end of the upper-class, not as well as other mfr's buggies. Part of what tells me it is more bash than race is all the dark coloring, even black wheels? No visibility

    And the lack of center universals/CVDs.

    I don't see what good universals would do over dogbones on a stationary center drive.

    Same thing they always do, eliminate some drivetrain slap and slack. Not essential, but expected on a high end buggy. Depends on the price tag, whether or not it would be a fair expectation on this car.

    RE: ofna hyper ss

    Price tag aside, it is not a very expensive thing to do from the factory anyways, it should be standard for both durability and wear elements.

    Of course, dogbones aren't TOO too bad if you coushin them on both cups with o-rings or another round rubber offering of sorts. My fiancee tightened her slipper all the way on her Blitz tho this past weeked, broke a drive cup clean in half, and used it as her excuse to want better equipment [&:] I loosened the slipper and she shut up hehe

    They transmit power moreefficiently and last longer.
