HB Racing unveils the new D815 V2

HB D815 V2

See: HB Europe | Buy HB Racing products

HB Racing is proud to announce the release of the successor to the World Champion D815 1/8 Nitro Buggy. The new D815 V2 adds key features based on extensive testing and racing by our HB Team Drivers and designers. The D815 V2 is faster, more adjustable, and easier to drive.

Now included are 2 chassis plates, standard and a new extended chassis. The extended chassis adds 4mm of length to the rear of the car which allows a longer wheelbase (up to the maximum regulation) and shifts the overall center of gravity for more stability, especially on high-speed corners.Ty Tessmann and most of the HB drivers have switched to this longer chassis. An extended rear drive shaft (neces- sary when using the extended chassis), and the popular high wing mount are also included.

“The D815V2 kit comes with more of the tuning options that I use on today’s high speed tracks, to make the car even faster.” – Ty Tessmann, HB Racing Team Driver, IFMAR World Champion

XRAY XB8’16: Exclusive interview with Martin Bayer

After the official launch of the 2016 edition of the XB8, we finish off our exclusive feature with an in-depth interview with Martin Bayer himself.

NeoBuggy: What was the most difficult task for you as a designer while working on the new XB8?

Martin Bayer: Before I was directly involved with R&D, I always thought that the most difficult part of the design process was to find the proper geometry of the car. Now I know that the most difficult challenge for a designer is to face resource limitations and especially The Deadline directly related to the production schedule. In high-competition racing, the customers buy cars for a new season, so missing a release date automatically means less sales which means less resources available for further development of the platform.

So my biggest challenge was to find the moment when I had to stop testing and provide the final specs of the car. If there was no deadline, development would be infinite… I would just continue with another & another last small tests here and there.
