In Stock – The RGT8 from HB Racing

HB Racing - RGT8 copy

The new RGT8 from HB Racing features a chassis that is based on the World Champion D815 buggy. It’s highly adjustable for a variety of track conditions, with race-proven durability and performance. The Race DNA from the D815 means the RGT8 is fully developed and super strong. Spare parts and option parts are shared with the D815, so they’re readily available at hobby shops around the world.

High performance parts are found throughout the RGT8, such as a 2 speed transmission, lightweight diff gears, rubber CVD boots, steel turnbuckles, machined engine mount and a 3mm 7075 chassis. The suspension features 16mm big bore threaded coilover shock absorbers and stiff monocoque suspension arms, front and rear sway bars, hinge pin inserts for easy toe and anti-squat settings, new adjustment of the rear camber link locations plus machined aluminum caster blocks, steering blocks and rear uprights. The steering system features an alloy servo saver arm, aluminum drag link, steel turnbuckles and woven carbon fiber steering arms on the steering blocks. Alternate arm mounts, steering blocks, caster blocks, steering arms, rear hub carrier arms and sway bars are all available to tune the RGT8 to any track or driving style.

  1. Will there be an electric/brushless version of this car? Those 1/8th scale rally game cars must be about the funnest and most versatile onroad cars for the parking lot driver available. I have four of them.
