im about 95% sure im gonna buy this Ofna Hyper 8 off this guy on rctech
hes gonna sell it to me as a roller with no electronics
ofna is known to have very tough buggies, and this is the HoBao Hyper 8 Pro so its defenatly worthy of some racing Smile once i get it up and runnign and dialed in im defenatly going out to the track in temecula!!




and ive got some of these tires sitting in my garage waiting for it Smile
(u know for some bashing Smile )

yea i frequently check RCM and all the conversions on there
the owner of this buggy actualy has a build thread for it on RCM
so you may have seen it Smile lol

this will be my 4th conversion Smile
converting things is so fun
but with manufactuers lately there wont be a need to haha
they are gonna start coming out with electric versions before the nitro versions

buggy was shipped today!
and i got those tires today, im gonna mount them up to my slash for the heck of it and take some pics haha

your gone put the buggy tires on the slash?? but the slash runs 12mm hex where as the buggies use 17mm.
what kind of power plant you going to use on this one?

i WAS gonna put the buggy tires ont he slash till i bought the buggy haha now the buggy is getting them. they make hub adapters for the slash that convert them from 12 > 17mm hex
it actually looks pretty freakin sweet



going to use the Castle Creations Mamba Monster Max, 2200kv
powered by a Nue 5s 4250mah Lipo
i might splurge alittle for some more mah for longer run times...

iv seen that look before, it was a slayer, but the look the same on the out side.
as for the power, better learn to walk out wheelies, i know it has a center diff, but on 5s, you are going to be lifting the front end for sure, i see it all the time.
