Default Hot Bodies D8 Video

Here is a new video at Revelation Raceway. I think that it is Amezcua that is driving.

Link: http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/d8/

The first video going down the page.
Looking for opinions.

It does look a little bouncy, but you have to consider the track. Revelation is always pretty blown out with lots of ruts and bumps. The soil is very loose and dusty. Traction is bad unless it is constantly watered. In the video, the track does not look damp (Dust flying everywhere). The loose dirt makes acceleration out of the corners hard and you tend to slide around alot. Every buggy reacts similarly to the rutted surface at Rev (I would know it is my home track). Give it some tuning and this buggy will be balistic. Some local guys got to try Travis's car at Rev a couple of weekends ago and they say that the buggy is in the top 5 for sure. These guys are competitive with Drake and Bradley so they know what they are talking about. Hell, the D8 is the #4 bestseller in the off road kit category on Amainhobbies and it is not even out yet!
