HB Racing 1/8 buggy closed cell foam inserts

HB Racing have introduced closed cell foam inserts for 1/8 buggy. The black closed cell foam is formulated for durability and consistency. They are medium density, perfect for a wide variety of racing conditions. These inserts make the tire contour slightly more round than HB’s red inserts for improved grip. And, the inner surface is now laterally slit for increased shock absorption on bumpy tracks. Sold in packs of 4, or individually (bulk).

HB Racing D817T Pro Combo

HB Racing have introduced the D817T Pro Combo including the D817T 1/8 nitro competition off-road truggy plus the addition of a CRF 7 port .21 engine and tuned exhaust. The D817T starts with a tough 7075 aircraft aluminum chassis that black anodized. It’s symmetri- cal for better balance and more consistent jumping and cornering. And it’s strategically machined to decrease weight and balance the flex characteristics. A one-piece CNC engine mount holds the engine in place on the 7075 alloy chassis. A complete competition 3-shoe clutch is included, along with sintered brake pads and double ground brake discs for fade free braking and consistent brake feel. Fully adjustable brake/throttle linkage is standard, as well as a racing fuel tank with stone clunk, and a lightweight foam air filter. A convenient covered electronics box allows easy removal for cleaning and mainte- nance, and easy access to servos.

HB Racing World Champion Combo

HB Racing have introduced the World Champion Combo including the D817 1/8 nitro competition off-road buggy plus the addition of a CRF 3 port .21 engine and tuned exhaust. The foundation for the D817 starts with a 7075 aircraft aluminum chassis that 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. The new chassis is now symmetrical for better balance and more consistent jumping and cornering. And it’s strategically machined to decrease weight and balance the flex characteristics.
