HB Racing D819 1/8th nitro buggy – Coming soon

HB Racing have released first information on their forthcoming D819 1/8th nitro buggy kit. The latest incarnation of the World Champion line of buggies adds the latest high performance parts to keep it ahead of the competition. Topping the kit is the new JConcepts Silencer S15 clear body, a popular choice among HB Racing team drivers. A new 1-piece design machined aluminium engine mount ensures simplicity, weight savings, and improved reliability. Mounting the engine and setting the gear mesh is easier than ever with the innovative new asymmetric engine mount cams. A heavy duty machined and lightened steel spur is now included for added durability and HB have fine-tuned the suspension with a new front B mount, revised rear hub carrier graphite plates, and new 1-piece sway bar links. Drivetrain refinements include a new front and rear diff pinion and centre outdrive system for easier assembly and maintenance, as well as new centre drive dogbones. All of the new parts are backwards compatible with the D817 and D817 V2 buggies, and D819 is compatible with most HB spare parts and option parts.
