HB Racing E819 E-Buggy kit

See: HB Racing

New from HB Racing is the new E819 1/8 E-buggy kit. The E819 takes all of the improved features introduced on the 2019 DNC E-Buggy champion E817 V2, and adds a host of new features designed to make it faster and more durable. A new chassis adds 2mm to the wheelbase for improved handling and jumping. And, chassis strength has been increased with a new thicker aluminum center brace. Revised rear hub carrier graphite plates and thin hex hubs enhance track performance. The E819 drivetrain features a heavy duty machined & lightened steel spur, new 43/13 front and rear differentials, and a revised rear center dogbone. Now topping the E819 kit is the popular JConcepts Silencer S15 clear body. All of the new parts are backwards compatible with the E817 and E817 V2 buggies, and the E819 is compatible with most HB spare parts and option parts. The new E819 follows the HB Racing concept… constant evolution to stay at the front of the pack.
