HB Racing unveils the new D815 V2

HB D815 V2

See: HB Europe | Buy HB Racing products

HB Racing is proud to announce the release of the successor to the World Champion D815 1/8 Nitro Buggy. The new D815 V2 adds key features based on extensive testing and racing by our HB Team Drivers and designers. The D815 V2 is faster, more adjustable, and easier to drive.

Now included are 2 chassis plates, standard and a new extended chassis. The extended chassis 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.Ty Tessmann and most of the HB drivers have switched to this longer chassis. An extended rear drive shaft (neces- sary when using the extended chassis), and the popular high wing mount are also included.

“The D815V2 kit comes with more of the tuning options that I use on today’s high speed tracks, to make the car even faster.” – Ty Tessmann, HB Racing Team Driver, IFMAR World Champion
