HB Racing have introduced the new D817 V2 nitro buggy kit. With the D817 V2, HB Racing takes the World Champion D817 nitro 1/8 buggy and adds the latest updates based on feedback from their Team Drivers. The D817 V2 includes a new molded nylon rear wing that is lightweight and durable. HB added their latest narrow rear shock tower that has been a favorite of their Team Drivers for its more useful range of adjustment. Also included is a new machined aluminum center chassis brace that strengthens the center section of the car, and an updated chassis with countersunk mounting holes for the new brace.

The machined aluminum 17.5° front caster blocks have been strengthened for improved durability. New aluminum steering linkage spacers replace the plastic spacers for improved bumpsteer geometry, more precise adjustment, less flex, and we revised the screw lengths to accommodate the new spacers. Other updates include a new flywheel that allows fitment of the latest engines, and the brake linkage now uses o-rings for improved reliability and more adjustability than springs. And, the V2 kit is now topped with a clear JConcepts Silencer buggy body, just like the one that David Ronnefalk used to win the IFMAR World Championship. The new D817 V2 follows the HB Racing concept… constant evolution to stay at the front of the pack.
