What happened to the Hypersprint?

Postby Bluezone » Sat Nov 22, 2008 7:15 pm

What happened to the Hypersprint. Its just like gone off the site and you cannot get the plans.

I seen the info about it in my plans i just got off Tony for the Daul a arm rear.

Would think thay would still have the plans on the site for people to build if thay wanted to. The shock setup looks cool.

Or even if thay had the hypersprint plans for free as a download. That be cool. :)

The Hypersprint was superceeded by the Barracuda.
Both buggies were in a similar price bracket, but because the Barracuda is a newer design with new ideas it made the Hypersprint obsolete.

The Hypersprint plans did not cover the front & rear suspension which was an Edge part/assembly.

The Barracuda is lighter, stronger, more suspension travel etc.

ohok. so you would had to buy the front and rear suspension kits and build the rest. Yeh the Barracuda looks nice in sum ways.

Off the hypersprint topic. Was thinking it would be nice to have a file thats got the plates in it that have to be laser cut for the likes of the double a arm rear. Would be nice to have the file sent with the plans when sumone buys the plans off you. Would make it way easyer and faster for people to get costs on getting the plates cut and quotes, Plus it it cut and not have to worry about designing the plates up in a program. But i gess for people that use and no how to use cad programs its easy to design them up. Even if you charged like $5 xtra to have the cd with the files on it for the laser cut plates.

Just a idea. :)

also would be faster and easier for people to not pay for plans and just d/l them of the net for free, so the edge goes bust and we can all go back to driving beat up old cars that handle like pigs and slow as sloths.
