Default weight

The Rc8b is over 100 grams heavier than the D8. And some people feel that the D8 is too heavy.

hey guys i'm actually going to get the d8,just found a local shop that carries all the parts and noticed they were kinda cheap in price.I will be doing the longer shocks and shock tower and that's it,maybe later i will do some lightweight drivetrain parts.I also like the fact that it comes with the quick change engine mount.

maybe i should take a look, at the hb truggy i mean alot of people are running them and i havnt heard a whole lot of compliats.

i would get the big bore shocks, though its proberty better on a rough track.

i have heard about the, cvd issues but doesnt the current d8 kits have the improved ones ?

or does hb send you the upgraded ones ?

lol see what i mean hb gives the quality out of the box, parts price is cheap and the buggy/truggy are so far my favorite and i have owned jammin x1cr, xray xb808 09 spec, and losi 2.0 race roller.

the cvd wear is quiet normal to all others if you look at ty tesmans tip page he says run boots packed with grease and the cvd's will last for ever. I havent seen cvd issues they last a long time even without boots just grease them.

No isses like a losi with throttle either. Also plastics do wear as all other buggies do but i will say the solid arms help the strength and keep the dirt from packing in like other buggies.
