This is the Hot Bodies D8T 1/8 Scale 4WD Glow Powered Truggy Kit.
Building on the tremendous success and the strong foundation of the original D8, Hot Bodies created the D8T Scale Truggy Race Kit! If winning races is why you're into the hobby, then this is the truggy for you. Designed with optimal weight distribution and a low center of gravity in mind, Hot Bodies has put together a super stable and easy to drive truck that will get you to the winners circle without breaking your piggy bank. Start throwing down some consistently fast lap times with a Hot Bodies D8T Scale Truggy Race Kit of your own!
The longer chassis allowed Hot Bodies lead off-road designer Josh Alton to move the engine nearly to the centre of the chassis, with the weight of the battery pack up front between the servos. Stand-up servo mounting points make the weight of modern metal-gear servos to sit as close to the middle and front of the car as possible. With the receiver sealed away at the rear, the weight-forward design lets the Hot Bodies D8T have better chassis balance than other truggy designs.
Strong composite chassis braces provide extra stiff bracing with minimal weight, while the chassis is machined for lightness under the servos and engine. The one-piece radio tray from the D8 is used in the Hot Bodies D8T Scale Truggy Race Kit for easy clean-up and maintenance.
The fantastic, all-new racing body was designed specifically for the Hot Bodies D8T. The Hot Bodies D8T Scale Truggy Race Kit's body extends all the way to the rear wing, giving it a look that emulates a full-size pick-up. Plenty of cooling air can get to engine, which is fully protected yet within the airflow that goes under the body. The body is supplied clear so you can apply your own racing colors, and is formed from extra tough polycarbonate plastic.

Excellent truck performs very well!!
Love this truggy..... cant wait to receive new servo saver design, but other than that this thing is mean with a trinity extech .24. Jumps are a easy, very little to no correction. Smooth steering, just a great all around truggy.
