More like the other way around, lol. Hobao make all the kit and it's sold as Hobao all over the world excepting in the US!!!!!!!

The one and only Ofna kit I have had the displeasure of using was a piece of junk, broke first time out, The Mutilator, the only thing it mutilated was my sense of humour.

The mutilator was your first mistake.

The high end models are quite good though. Like the newer Hypers and the X line from Jammin.

I like the Hobao Hyper ST RTR. I think I am going to get that one, especially because the Ofna Hyper RTR truggy is almost $100 dollars more. Hell if they are the same why not I am saving $100 bucks!

Uhh what? If they're the same the price shouldn't be different. Jammin (hong-nor) and Hobao are different companies...
So they're NOT the same. Give me the links of the cars please.. Cuz I think you're thinking about the Jammin X1 RTR...

okay here you go

this is the Hoboa hyper RTR link (cheapest I can find it)

http://www.nitrohouse.com/catalog/pr...oducts_id=9230

and the Ofna hyper RTR link (cheapest I can find it)

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...0&I=LXRLU2&P=K

I was given the impression that these were the same RTRs just different name on the body.

They are EXACTLY the same. It's because they're selled in different shops.......
So the point is that the car is cheaper @ Nitro house... But the picture you can see in Nitrohouse's website is from the Hyper ST pro, not the RTR. So that is also misleading.

I was just trying to make the point that when I do a search for the Ofna hyper I get a price of $450 cheapest. When I do a search for The Hobao hyper I get $370 cheapest. Regardless of sellers it seems that we here in the US get charged more for the Ofna name. I am glad I found this information before spending more money than I wanted.

So know I have narrowed my list down to two.

Caster K8T RTR
Hobao Hyper ST RTR

Go with the Caster, You live here in Ca. the tracks in your area tend to be fast, huge jumps, blown out..the Hyper ST is not the best choice for these conditions, The Caster would work better.

I was looking at the one but I feel if you are going to spend almost 500 bucks you should bet a FM radio with it. Just my thought!

If you are going to get into racing OR even going to the track you might as well plan on getting a spektrum. Just makes it so much easier not worrying about your car running away from a messed up signal or someone turning on there radio when you are running. I am afraid to use anything but a 2.4ghz. radio.
