HongNor Body

VP-PRO has released their latest body creation, this time designed for the HongNor X3 1/8 buggy. The body features a sleek and low-profile cab forward design that is intended to reduce body weight and maximize stability and speed. The body is made up of high quality 1.0mm clear Lexan. While VP-PRO has clearly put clever thought into the design, the same cannot be said for the name of the body as it has been given no catchy title, but instead simply labeled the ‘CB-HNX3-CL’ body.
