HB Racing E817 1/8-scale Competition Buggy

By: Tim Gluth

HB Racing has a new 1/8-scale electric buggy for those hobbyists that are looking to get into the competitive side of the R/C world. The E817 prototype has already seen some racing action, taking the 2016 Euros title. Now this new buggy can be the next weapon in your radio-controlled arsenal.

Evolved from the D815 V2, the 4-wheel drive HB Racing E817 features many performance-minded components and elements to help this machine get to the front of the pack.

Adjustable suspension towers, front and rear wheel hubs, and an adjustable motor mount are just a few of the customizable areas of this buggy.

Weight distribution can also be massaged by way of the adjustable battery mount (forward/backward), allowing for ultra-fine tuning.

A Pro-Line Predator body and Pro-Line rear wing are also included in this kit, capping a beautiful chassis with an equally beautiful outer shell.
