Default Ignored

How come all the body manufactures have ignored the D8? Proline has a body for the MBX6 before it was even out. They even have one for the Hyper 9. Where is the body for the D8? No one has made one yet.

the reason that the MBX6 had a shell out so soon is because scott hughes works for proline. as for the D8 have you checked to see if any other buggy body is bassically the same, maybe there is another body that is virtually the same?

I doubt any other body would work with the way the radio tray is setup. They have a body for the Hyper 9. Its barely in the stores. Why ignore the D8?

Its funny Proline is taking so long given that the World Champ used there tires at the Worlds, but they don't make a body for his buggy.

1. "Nobody" ran D8 until the worlds, takes a few minutes to make a new body

2. Nobody can probably make one cheaper than Hot bodies

Actually it was run well before the Worlds at the Manufactures cup. The Hyper 9 came out after the D8 and they already have a body for it.

Maybe because they think they won't sell many.

Well any business makes their decisions based on demand. There was really not thaat much of a following for the hot bodies off road stuff until Hara one the worlds, then everybody went out and got a D8.
It's coming thought don't you worry, look next month for the release.

Tim Bump the designer of the Hyper 9 worked directly with proline...the body that comes with the kit is a proline. So thats why it is out.

Looks like J concepts is going to beat Proline out the gate. Can't wait to see what it looks like. http://www.jconcepts.net/store/index...roducts_id=279

The MBX-5 was a proven champion and the MBX-6 was to be nothing less than that. The D8 was just another buggy that was ran and was the underdog that no one expected to win, not even Atushi. It has now become a great contender in this huge racing scene. Thats why it gained so much popularity so quickly after the win, people want what wins.

People have probably ignored the d8 because they don't understand how to deal with this weapon. It is very popular and wining races everywhere. I wish Kojak could get sponsored by hot bodies.I guarantee he would take care of it, you should see his stuff its kept spotless.
