HB Racing D418 - 1/10 4WD Buggy
 
As more and more information starts to trickle in as the 2017 Worlds draw closer, I think it may be time for a separate D418 thread. I’m including some of the pictures of the hybrid prototype from http://eos.redrc.net/2017/10/chassis-focus-david-ronnefalk-4 that were posted in the 413 thread and a new YouTube video Ronnefalk posted on his Facebook page.

I actually considered making one myself! Lol. I used to love doing that kind of stuff!

I was thinking about kinda doing the same kind of layout on my D413 .. might have to move forward with that project haha

Ronnefalk finished 7th (Winning A3) in 2WD at the IFMAR Worlds with his HB Racing "Frankinbuggy". Very excited to see what he does with the D418 prototype!

Should be good. He's usually better with the wheeler than the 2wd.

90sRacer 11-17-2017 05:09 AM

D.R. Looking good so far with his HB Prototype.

Looking at the overall design of this buggy, itís amazing how many similarities there are (chassis and layout aside). Wondering how much will actually change when the D418 goes into production. Photos from JConceps Facebook feed.

That track in the video towards the top of this thread is awesome, I bet they have some killer layouts there. Davids buggy looked awesome on that track(in china too). The buggy still looks over complicated tho, a,b,c,d block inserts don't look like fun still as well as f/r diff access. Most times when I see these buggy's in action they look a little loose but fast. They seem like a good car for aggressive drivers.

This is the vid of worlds https://youtu.be/iLZ4iH48jwE almost seems they could sell a conversion kit. Kinda shady of Ryan not to get out of his way at the end. This is a2 of ifmar worlds. David wins. He qualified 2nd. https://youtu.be/2T68rY9N5CA

90sRacer 11-18-2017 09:39 AM

Not too shabby. Ronnefalk podiums with his HB prototype, finishing 2nd at the Worlds. He took the win in A2, requiring the A3 to decide the champ. Ultimately, Maifield would be crowned champ. Kudos to HB for a great effort. Excited to see the future of HBís 1/10 wheeler.

It's basically a chassis change. I wish they made it easier to work on so changes could be made during a normal club race.

werner sline 11-18-2017 12:36 PM

is there no servo saver at all ?

i always loved those shocktower ! is this buggy durable ?

Durable is what this buggy is famous for. D413 has always been a hard buggy to break. Seems Tekno is suffering from some odd failures. Good to see this D418 is taking a lot of the D413 over to the new chassis.

I wouldn’t count on this buggy to come out this year from what I heard even though it should be . So i wouldn’t sell off the D413 it’s still good and competitive .

I don’t think so it’s totally diffrent from the D413 this looks more like the E-buggy . Looks like it’s a little easier to work on .
