HB Racing D817 V2 1/8th nitro buggy

Available now from HB Racing is the D817 V2 1/8th nitro off-road buggy kit. The V2 includes a new moulded nylon rear wing that is both lightweight and durable and HB Racing also added their latest narrow rear shock tower that has been a favourite among their team drivers for its more useful range of adjustment. Also included is a new machined aluminium centre chassis brace that strengthens the centre section of the car, and an updated chassis with countersunk mounting holes for the new brace. The machined aluminium 17.5 degree front caster blocks have been strengthened for improved durability. New aluminium steering linkage spacers replace the plastic spacers for improved bumpsteer geometry, more precise adjustment, less flex, and HB Racing also revised the screw lengths to accommodate the new spacers. Other updates include a new flywheel that allows fitment of the latest generation of nitro engines, and the brake linkage now uses O-rings for improved reliability and more adjustability than springs. Lastly the V2 kit is topped with a clear JConcepts Silencer buggy body, just like the one that David Ronnefalk used to win the IFMAR World Championship.
