Hyper 8 Truggy

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Jeremy Kortz was recently seen at a local Southern California race track testing the new Hobao Hyper 8 truggy. The monster truck is based off the recently released Hyper 8 buggy that Jeremy and Greg Degani have piloted in recent months.

Though the H8 truggy shown here is a very very early prototype (and Kortz stressed to us several times that it's not production ready), we can see in the photos that Hobao has some interesting things planned for this truck. From its webbed and reinforced shock towers to the long suspension arms and clean chassis layout, the Hyper 8 truggy looks to be yet another exciting addition to the "Unlimited Monster Truck" racing scene! Stay tuned to rc-car.com and RC Car Magazine for more news as it becomes available.

hobao hyper st

They released it , I bought one . The rtr engine is "ok". Off the line it is a bit sluggish but once you're moving it's very snappy. This truck handles fantastic and is very durable . I took out the rtr .28 because I wanted more bottom end , also was nervous of the 280 -290 degree run temps (still with tons of smoke,ofna says that's the normal temp for this engine) and put in an o.s. .30 now this thing really hauls @220 -230 deg. comes rtr with a basic radio (3ch tx , 4ch rx) I was suprised at how effective the stock servos are I'm leaving them in till they die. I highly recommend this truggy, even more so if you already have a better engine to go in it.
