HB D216 1/10 2WD unveiled


Despite not being officially announced yet, we were very kindly granted access to a production-ready version of Hot Bodies’ new 2WD 1/10 buggy, the D216, here this week competing in Japan for the first time in the hands of Ty Tessmann and David Ronnefalk. We reported earlier in our spy shots story about HB’s rather unique vertical transmission setup, rather than go with the popular laydown transmission as used on multiple prototypes here the D216 features a unique design.

Having not been specifically designed for astroturf surfaces, the D216 is likely more at home on dirt surfaces with an emphasis on adaptability and offering a plethora of adjustment options. Speaking with David Ronnefalk it sounds as if a laydown transmission would be the way to go for future astroturf and carpet racing – the trend more in Europe.

With the layout and style of transmission, motor and speedo placement is such they balance the car from left to right, expect more details in the official announcement and release expected before the end of the year in time for indoor season!

Kyosho mid-motor RB6 3-gear Conversion Kit

Mid Motor RB6

While attending a recent race, we found ourselves chatting with a local Kyosho RB6 mid-motor buggy owner, Jason McClarrinon, who was searching for a 3-gear transmission setup. Unable to find a conversion, he created one. The conversion quickly took off in popularity, and is now available for sale nationwide. Fellow racers have said the 3-gear mid motor conversion proved to provide quicker acceleration, more on power steering, and smoother/more predictable braking. Includes motor spacer, cover/stiffener, top shaft bearing spacer, (4) M3 x 45mm fasteners.
