See: Answer-RC

Answer-RC Distribution have introduced a new range of carbon fibre parts for the Mugen Seiki MBX8, the Team Associated RC8B3.1, the HB Racing D812, D815, D817 and D819 as well as the SWORKz S35-3. First up are the tank guards. These are a BiMatreial aluminiumized fibre with foam core for strength and lightweight. They reflect the heat from the pipe to keep fuel tank cool giving consistent tune and increased tank life. They also include 3D printed fuel tube holder and come included with all hardware needed for fitting. Only for the Mugen Seiki, Team Associated, and HB Racing buggies. Also new are the carbon fibre front wings. The use of the front wings will increase the down force and the corner speed and will offer a better jump control. The front wings include CNC machined mounting blocks and all hardware needed and they are available for the Mugen Seiki, Team Associated, and SWORKz buggies.

In the Nitro Buggy final Nick Cox (HB Racing) managed to take the win from
Chris Sharpe Simkiss (SWORKz) in second and Vincenzo Zuccarelli (Mugen) in third.
