HoBao Hyper 8.5 Pro Edition buggy

HoBao Hyper 8.5 gas buggy

We forgot to mention this news when our partners Neo Buggy announced it last week, but HoBao are coming out with their latest 1/8th scale buggy, the Hyper 8.5 Pro Edition. We also now have pictures of the new buggy thanks to HoBao Norway and the car looks pretty good with its new spider diffs, big bore shocks, new chassis and braces as well as other changes. These pictures come hot on the heels of the announcement by UK distributor CML of the HoBao Hyper 8 ‘BRCA edition‘ which comes out in August, a release date for the 8.5 Pro isn’t known yet.
