HB Racing has released a number of new ‘World Spec’ parts for its 1:8 Buggy platform. During last September’s IFMAR World Championship in Redovan, Spain, their team drivers were running some prototype parts as part of their ongoing chassis development. The performance increase of the HB Racing D819RS was so good that HB Racing has decided to produce a batch of these World Spec Parts for the owners of D819RS and E819RS. Among the ‘World Spec’ parts release are a new chassis plate, new front & rear suspension arms and compatible woven graphite covers, a caster block set and a steering block set. Use of some of the parts require some modifications of the original kit chassis or the use of the new World Spec Chassis.
