Default Robbers Officialy to HPI-Hot Bodies

This just in:... Robbers entry form for the CRCRC Midwinters just came from HPI so I think that it is official.

Congrads Robbers and lots of luck in the future.

Be sure to come out to Columbus the second week of Jan to see him with his new rides and what he will do for a 2wd.

Hot Bodies is building up quite the team between Peanut, Hara, Matsuzaki, and now Robbers.

Start? Don't they design all their stuff? If not, who does?

Their Cyclone D4 is an obvious clone to the BJ4. Even look at their new slipper clutch design, copied straight from the B44. Hopefully, their 2wd buggy has some originality or something unique to it, besides purple anodizing of coarse.

I think the facts around the Cyclone are well documented. Lets not turn this thread into another negative one. There are plenty of those.
Congratulations Jesse. You've supported Planet and I look forward to seeing you run with your new equipment. I guess I'll have to stock up on Hot Bodies so that when the inevitable WHOOPIN' goes down I can sell everybody one.

I seem to remember you saying something to the effect of now that Robbers left "Losi" he would have a more reliable drivetrain and less fragile buggy.
So who's harshin?
All buggys break.
Over it now?

The slipper is not a copy of the one from the B44. The new slipper has the ability to adjust the torque splitting ability (kind of like a 1/8 scale center diff). I'm pretty sure the B44s slipper can't do that. The D4 is different than the B44 (or BJ4) in a lot of ways. Not any one thing that is really different (except the front shock tower is behind the front shocks ), but enough small differences, to make them totally different cars. I actually just bought a D4, and I'm hoping that it is as good of a car as it looks like.

Regardless all buggys and trucks have faults...Congrats to J. R. just another option for the buggy class that should be welcomed.
