Default New Hobbytech Spirit Buggy.

...And just when you thought the nitro buggy scene couldn't get any more crowded...

Nothing terribly innovative is visible in the renderings. Nice body styling though.

All I can do is laugh....

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention. I support Hobbytech 100% just so it doesn't become a flame war or misunderstanding.

Hard to tell from the pics but I can't see anything major it lacks against Caster. ALso it has stuff that Caster does not so maybe it's the pills then

"Well, as we all know there are not actually that many manufacturers in the world.

Here in England we have ford, ie ford volvo, jag, landrover. GM ie Vauxhall, Saab, Daewoo, Isuzu, sort of FIAT. VW ie VW Audi Seat Skoda Rolls-Royce Porshe. Chrysler, Chrysler, Dodge, Merc kinda Renault. PSA, Pergeot citroen. Nissan. Toyota (Lexus). Honda. There are a few others but you have the idea. Most the the manufacturers have diffrent product ranges for different geographical areas. and some change the name of there brand with the area, GM are the best example of this. In Oz there Holden. There are some interesting things going on, because the euro........."

Well it's not a secret that STR8 was made by Caster and that there was a lot of whining about the C-hub and Caster guys not allowed to use it in UK/Europe. What that has got to do with the 1:1 car manufacturers I have no clue but I assume you do as you are having fun. Or is the funny part that Hobbytech now sources their cars from another mfg ?

No, it is still our sister company. I am just intrigued as to how many people write off "Caster" with "it is too small of a company" "product is xxxxx"

that is all. Neobuggy is primarily a European news source and Hobbytech is huge in Europe. They have done a great job promoting their product.

I like the looks of the body. Seems to be a lot of adjustment holes on the rear hubs. Lots of suspension tuning to be had.

The name is a bit odd. They took Dodge/Chrysler's SRT8 and swapped the T and R to STR8 which could also be read as "straight".

I think there's ALWAYS more room in the marketplace for new and innovative buggy's. Some of the cars on the market (yes, their still winning races) are getting a little long in the tooth, in my opinion! Exciting new releases are always welcome by me, and all the people I know!

If some of the major chassis manufacturers we all know, don't make dramatic changes to their platforms soon, to keep up with all the innovation that's been recently released, I wouldn't be surprised if a SMALLER known company takes the BIGGER hardware.

The next 2-3 years are certainly going to prove interesting in regards to the 1/8 racing scene. Wait n' see!
