yea from the guys i seen who have the d8 and the d8t the d8 defiely looks a lot smoother over the washboard jumps and any bump then the eight 2.0
does . and d8t looks pretty smooth on a rough track also the track i go to is, rutty and blown out etc.



i dont have the eight 2.0 b or the eight -t i have the eight 1.0 b and i had to make changes from the stock setup cause. of the unstable on the stright and the turns and also the stock. setup wouldnt roatate good at all,so i changed ,to the mike trute setup love it .

I have owned every car out there excluding the MP9, I have been running the D8 for ruffly 2 mths. great buggy outside I never had any issues but since going into indoors (more traction) I have been breaking CVD's left and right I bought the WCE version last weekend and will be running them this saturday so we will see what happends if they break again I will be going back to my MBX6...other then the CVD issue I love the car, cheap and fun beating all of the "high dollar" cars with it to boot lol good luck with whatever you go with.

The only thing to keep in mind with the CVDs is wear.... most guys never break one till they're car has a couple gallons on it then they start breaking them all the time.... its because by then the drivetrain develops some wear and the added lash will break them. I suggest rebuilding the CVDs whenever necessary to keep the lash to a minimum, the kits are less than $5 and worth it

The D8 will accelerate as fast as any car out there.... wouldnt be world champ is it didnt hehe

Good luck finding parts for a Z-car

The D8 is a very good racer. Corner speed and acceleration matches any other buggy out there. It's very forgiving and easy to drive. It's a little heavier than other buggies stock, but I think that's what makes it as forgiving as it is.

a good budget mill would be a werks b3 i run one in mine and it has alot of bottum in tourge and its descent on top but if you could afford a little more i would look at the b5 that motor is pretty fast. and good luck on picking a buggy i like the d8 myself.

you really dont need the drive train at first the car will be good stock and they are alot of good HB guys that will help you with set up and tipps as you learn your car and the costumer service is really good as well, and my son runs the car bone stock and he likes it i might lighten it up a little in a few months but it could hurt is driving a lighter car isnt always the best
