HB Racing D418 1/10th 4WD buggy – Coming soon

First images and information on HB Racing’s forthcoming D418 1/10th scale 4WD buggy have appeared on the internet, showing a greatly revised platform. The car is based on an all-new aluminium chassis with raised side guards, similar to what can be found on the company’s successful E817 1/8th scale buggy. HB Racing’s trademark monocoque suspension arms are supplied in a harder compound as standard for a more precise handling while the centre bulkhead is now split for easier access to the centre differential. The highly adjustable suspension offers optimised suspension travel and shock length and the kit will be topped off by a JConcepts body shell and wing. No information has be given on a release date but it is understood that the kit is about to hit stores soon.

New features:
– JConcepts body shell & rear wing
– New aluminium chassis
– Refined chassis layout similar to the E817
– Fore-aft centre bulkhead adjustment
– Easy access centre diff
– Revised wing mount
– Revised suspension travel
– Revised shock length
– All small screws now use a 1.5mm hex driver
– Optional slipper clutch available
