We are pleased to announce the stocking of the updated HB Racing D817V2 2016 World Championships Winning Buggy:

HB (Hot Bodies) Racing D817v2 Remote Control Nitro 1/8th Buggy


The buggy that helped David Ronnefalk win the World Championship in Las Vegas in 2016 and updated to help at the 2018 Worlds in Australia has landed at Future World Models!

An updated and refined platform with further developments from the Worlds winning 1/8 buggy.

The updated D817 V2 Buggy from HB Racing takes the popular World Champion D817 nitro 1/8 buggy adding the latest updates that have been refined by team drivers around the globe.

The HB Racing D817 V2 kit includes a new moulded nylon rear wing that is lightweight and durable, the latest narrow rear shock tower that has been a favourite upgrade with Team Drivers as well as club racers, for its more useful range of adjustment.

Also included is a new machined aluminium centre chassis brace that strengthens the centre section of the car, and an updated chassis with countersunk mounting holes for the new brace. The machined aluminium 17.5 front caster blocks have been strengthened for improved durability.

New aluminium steering linkage spacers replace the plastic spacers for improved bumpsteer geometry, more precise adjustment, less flex, and HB Racing have revised the screw lengths to accommodate the new spacers. Other updates include a new flywheel that allows fitment of the latest engines, and the brake linkage now uses o-rings for improved reliability and more adjustability than springs.

And to top it off the HB Racing D8172 V2 kit is now topped with a clear JConcepts Silencer buggy body, just like the one that David Ronnefalk used to win the IFMAR World Championship.

The new D817 V2 follows the HB Racing concept... constant evolution to stay at the front of the pack.

All parts are interchangeable with no concerns for owners of the current kits being outdated.
