everywhere I go, it seems like everyones hates ofna, are they bad cars or

other cars, for example the Nitro OB4 vs Mugen Mtx2.

As a former Ofna owner, I believe I can speak for this.

Quite simply, the cars are built with low quality parts (cheezy screws into
soft plastic; I am quite mechanicaly inclined and even I stripped out many
***holes), and the cars lack many adjustments.

They do seem to be quite a good value on paper (hence the reason I was duped
into getting one), however once you've got one on the track, the reason for the
low cost redialy becomes apparent.

Gettings parts for them is a problem. I watched my friend struggle with that
all race season. He'd break a part and have to mail order a replacement while
the rest of us just wandered into the local shop and grabbed the piece we
needed. (Then there was that ugly scene when OFNA had two different styles of
suspension arms - and had the wrong one listed for his car.)

My Nitro Hyper 10 and Mini Colt are a blast!...Hyper 10 is in current issue of
RC Nitro nagazine.

They are lower quality.  And they over-rate the power from their engines.

Read the reviews, ask people's opinions of Ofna.  Their kits are impressive
on paper, but when parts don't fit together without some slight
"refinishing", it starts wearing down your nerves.

Ofnas are perfectly okay for those who are willing to put up with the
hassles of owning an Ofna.  But I spend enough time already just maintaining
a car that was designed well to begin with.

I don't hate Ofna, I just don't like them.
