My point is:
Is it fair to portray this as a D8 winning a race, when clearly it isn't even close to what comes in the kit?
A layperson would never know the difference or be able to take advantage of it if they did. This is nothing new. The XXXcr that Mike Truhe won nats was heavily modded (with old parts), the B4's with their extended chassis weren't publicly available at the last worlds, AE even showed up and won worlds one year with prototype cars that were never seen before or since that day. Losi wouldn't even allow their cars to be photographed. It was a D8 with mods. It's up to every driver to make their car work for them. He did it with a few parts from another HB kit. Move along...

The question though is, with which cars did he win?... Apparently ones which don't bear much resemblance to the ones sold in hobby shops under the same name. That's the issue..

So are the big races then more about the drivers, or more about the brands? If the former, fine.. But then you get into some pretty grey territory with marketing and advertising... And common sense, really.. I mean, it's the brands paying the drivers..
Again, can't see why you're harping on this. He won with the car he won with. What was Jesse Robbers' HB? Same? Different? Who cares?

He figured out how to make the car work better for him, we're all free to do the same for ourselves. HB is not obligated to adhere to imaginary homologation rules. Eventually they'll apply what they learned to a next generation kit that you can buy.

+1000000 on dumbest thread ever.

Great job Ty and family, what an awesome performance that didn't surprise alot of us.


Now I'm off to a Chevy Dealership to purchase an Impala and on to race the NASCAR circuit as that's how it works. Right?

I dont think the intentions of this thread being started was dumb. I just think all the dumbness thats polluted it has made it a dumb thread.

Default Real racing

I know that in real racing especially in drag racing whatever "chassis" the car is built with is what the car is called and goes by. Not what manufacturer made the part or parts the car might be running to achieve the best possible set up. Ie chevy with a ford rear end or a ford with a chevy motor in it. And Ty's chassis was a HB chassis.....

Default Well

RC car racing has always had new parts and special batteries, new tires and so on from the beginning of the hobby.

The only real problem with HB is that they are running two buggies. I say test away, but make sure all racers on the team have at least the same chassis. Especially for advertising. If the CR8 had been top 2 then the car would be very anticipated, but with an old car with older parts, and a new car both being run and the seemingly mixed situation going on with releasing a new car it kinda leaves the customers thinking, hmm, what's going on?
