See: HB Racing

HB Racing have added to their range the new Gridlock V3 mounted tire for Nitro Buggy and E-buggy. The HB Gridlock V3 tires bridge the gap between the HB Khaos and Megabite tires and are designed to ensure longer life for long mains. The Gridlock V3 make it easy to get a good balance of handling and grip, and they work well on hard packed grooved tracks and oily conditions. They are mounted on Version 2 of the HB 1/8 Buggy dish wheels that are 20% lighter than the original version, and HB Racing black closed cell inserts are pre-installed. The HB Racing Gridlock V3 mounted tires are sold as pairs and available in Pink (Super Soft), Red compound (Soft) and White (Medium) compounds and also in the new Yellow compound (Medium Soft) which is in the range between the Pink and the Red compounds.

HB Racing D819 1/8 nitro buggy

See: HB Racing

HB Racing have introduced the new D819 1/8 nitro buggy. The latest iteration of the World Champion line of buggies from HB Racing, the D819 adds the latest high performance parts to keep it ahead of the competition. The foundation for the D819 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 chassis is symmetrical for better balance and more consistent jumping and cornering. And it’s strategically machined to decrease weight and balance the flex characteristics. A machined aluminum center chassis brace that strengthens the center section of the car, and an updated chassis with countersunk mounting holes for the new brace.

See: HB Racing

HB Racing have introduced new narrow wheel hubs for the D819. First up are the narrow lightweight aluminum narrow wheel hubs. These are standard equipment on the new D819 buggy and each wheel hub weighs only 3 grams. Next up are the narrow heavy brass wheel hubs. The brass hubs make the car easier to drive and less sensitive on slippery tracks. They also give a more stable feeling for aggressive driving. Each heavy brass wheel hub weighs 10.5 grams. The narrow wheel hubs help racers conform to width regulations when fitting the variety of wheels and tyres available on the market.
