HB D8 LW chassis & 5mm FR shock tower

HB D8 LW chassis & 5mm FR shock tower

New from Hot Bodies for the D8 buggy is this specially machined lightweight chassis. Starting with a 3mm thick aluminum chassis and strategically milling areas that don’t affect strength, they have dropped some serious weight while maintaining the proper flex in the most critical areas. An overall lighter vehicle results in greater acceleration speeds, stopping speeds and steering input response. You can now also beef up the front of the car with this new 5mm shock tower replacement. Also suitable for the HB-Ve8 and the HPI Vorza it is great for that racer that crashes a lot or just wants that extra security.
