RC8B is more durable.
D8 seems to be easier to drive while rc8b needs a bit more effort.
If you are only interested on these 2 then there is no clear winner(LHS support wins)...BUT if you are also interested in other brands then let us know!!!! BOB here hands down!!!!

I have to agree with these guys.

I've got a HB D8B, and I like it alot.. But the RC8B is really good too. So, it really does come down to 2 things. LHS support for parts, and budget..

I have RC8B I like it alot my brother has D8 both are good. It comes down to does it fit your driving style or can be adjusted to fit you.

It's very rude when someone is asking about certain car then someone comes in buy this other one.

Default well

I really don't like the hot bodies, well I like hot bodies, but not the brand of cars, kinda cheap, but the Rc-8 is a sweet ride, it's different than most other buggies, but it carries the most corner speed of the bunch, and has tons of travel without the axels coming out of the outdrives, well made car, just kinda weird, but I tell you Associated has been making cars a long time, and great cars too, Never fails to win races, and with good prices on parts and heck the buggy isn't that expensive....The only real complaint is that some screws are hard to get to, but every car has it's things.
