Default HPI Vorza Flux 1/8 E-Buggy Thread

With the World Championship-winning HB D8 buggy as its foundation, the Vorza takes the race-winning design of the D8 and mixes it up with HPI Flux HP tech from the Savage Flux HP to give you awe-inspiring speed! This is a ready to run (RTR) buggy that you can take to BMX jumps for hair-raising big-air thrills, and then you can take it straight to any buggy track for top-level racing action - it will turn heads and amaze your friends! The Vorza has everything that backyard bashers and racers want! The Vorza Flux HP is our FASTEST buggy, able to reach speeds up to 117km/h, or 73 mph*!

looks like a pretty sound car beeing based on the D8, and dosnt CC make the FLUX stuff, so your getting pretty much a D8 with 2200kv/MMM for about 700!

The R is for ROAR i'm guessing? The battery tray is complies with ROAR rules on battery size. The HB car is very balanced and handles like a D8.

The plate from the front bulkhead to the steering posts and that rear body mount are both cool parts - I could see those making their way to my various D8 based cars...
