HPI HB D8 Buggy 1/8
HPI HB D8 Buggy 1/8 in action!
HB continues our 1/8th scale racing tradition with our brand new buggy, the HB D8! The D8 platform was designed entirely in the USA from the ground up with rigorous competition in mind. Vigorous testing by our team of World Class Drivers has proven that the D8 will not only be the fastest car on the track, but the most forgiving as well, capable of excelling in the hands of both novice and factory pilots. If you’re a serious racer with plans to be in the winner’s circle you’ll want to grab yourself a D8, because once they hit the track, you’ll need one to get there.
Centralized Chassis Weight
Next-generation centralized chassis design moves the engine close to the centreline of the 4mm chassis to get quicker steering and fast response.
New Racing Suspension Design
Optimized Suspension Geometry to attack the rigors of the new age 1/8th scale tracks. Centralized Weight Distribution provides superb balance with increased transitional agility.
HB Big Bore Shocks
The super-sized shock package is the largest in its class allowing the D8 to recover from the roughest of landings. Whether you’re making a big-air jump pass in the main or taking a flying leap over a building, the D8′s 16mm Big Bore shocks will allow you to jump, and land with confidence. (we don’t recommend jumping over buildings)
Race-Optimized Rallycross Steering
You can’t have the total package of racing perfection without a great steering system, and the D8 does not disappoint. Servo saver, turnbuckles, steel drag link, sway bar and more, all in one tight package.
New Radio Tray Layout
The one piece tray allows for easy maintenance as it can be removed in one section when you need to clean the dirt off your ride.
Grab a larger piece of turf with the D8′s maxed out wheel dimensions. The largest wheels allowed under ROAR rules, these puppies will put more of your tread on the ground so you can put more of your rivals behind you.
New Racing Fuel Tank
Utilizing 1/5th scale technology the D8 implements a new clunk design which will use every drop of fuel whether your racing to the line, or upside down waiting for a marshal.
Low Profile Air Filter
The new slammed look of the filter not only looks pro, but provides a larger surface area for your engine to breath through.
One-Piece Engine Mount
A rock solid single piece mount makes removal and installation of your engine as easy as removing 4 screws. The one piece design allows you to set the gear mesh once and not worry about adjustments during maintenance.
New Style Brake Linkage
The D8 brake linkage setup puts both links on top of the middle deck, making disassembly and maintenance very quick and simple.
No E-Clip Suspension Mounts
CNC-machined suspension mounts hold the hinge pins in place without e-clips anywhere. The captured hinge pin design makes maintenance easy!
