Hot Bodies D812 1/8th buggy

Hot Bodies introduce the D812 1/8th nitro competition buggy. This buggy embodies the latest refinements and improvements that have come directly from the HB racing team for the 2012-2013 racing season. Starting with the basis of the World Champion D8 buggy, and improving even on the Vice World Champion Hara Edition, the D812 improves the D8 in every way. Monocoque suspension arms allow to tune the suspension setup for extra flex, more stiffness or even added weights for a completely new feel to your driving. For faster acceleration and quicker in-air pitch control, the drivetrain gears are lighter. New CVD boots retain grease and keep out dirt that can sandblast your drive axles. Aluminium drive axles, caster blocks and rear hubs improve on the durability of the D8. A one-piece radio tray makes maintenance easy and quick, and the one-piece engine mount helps even more by allowing you to remove and re-insert the engine without having to re-set the gear mesh time after time.
