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!

Features:
  • 4mm 7075 Aluminum chassis
  • Super-sized shock package is the largest in its class
  • The largest wheels allowed under ROAR rules
  • 5x10mm Clutch Bearings
  • 4.3:1 internal gear ratio
  • Ultimate in reliability and ease of maintenance because of button head screws on the suspension system that secure all hinge pins
  • Larger surface area for engine to breathe through thanks to new slammed look of filter
  • One-piece tray can be removed in one section when cleaning is required
  • One-piece design allows gear mesh to be set once without worry of adjustments during maintenance
The Hot Bodies D8T Scale Truggy Race Kit starts with a brand new extended chassis machined from solid 4mm thick 7075 aluminum, with 10 degrees of front kick-up. The chassis plate has angled sides for extreme stiffness front-to-rear, giving you a more solid platform for race tuning.

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.

In addition to keeping the car pointed in the right direction, the suspension has to keep the tires on the ground as much as possible, so that the power from the engine is transformed into traction on the ground. This is the job that the Hot Bodies D8T’s suspension must cope with, and we know it's up to the task. It's been refined over months of extreme testing in pure racing conditions, to make it the best possible performer on the track!

16mm Big Bore shocks with threaded shock bodies are used to keep the tires on the ground and you in complete control. The shocks are connected to extra-long solid suspension arms to let you go right over bumps and ruts in the racing surface with the same already-legendary stability of the World Champion D8 buggy!

The Hot Bodies Inverse Steering Block Design and aligned king pin and universal joint pivots combine to give you total confidence on the track and a superb driving feel. A full range of suspension adjustments are possible with the total racing design: adjustable roll centre, thick turnbuckle links, sway bars, steel turnbuckles and Hot Bodies’ unique counter-rotating shock mount screws.

Getting the power from the engine to the tires is a job that any good race truck must be able to perform properly. Getting as much power as possible with a minimum of loss or drag is just as important as keeping the tires in contact with the ground, which the Hot Bodies D8T suspension does with superb ease. The Hot Bodies D8T Scale Truggy Race Kit features every detail you'd expect to see in a top-level competition truggy, and more!

The Hot Bodies D8T uses extra heavy-duty spiral-cut 'worm gear' differentials to get the power from the driveshafts to the wheels. Six steel universal dogbones are used for the centre driveshafts and at each corner to get the power from the middle differentuial to front and rear differentials, and also from the differentials to the wheels. The dual fiber disc brakes can be adjusted separately front and rear using the unique linkage that brings the adjustment linkage of both brakes above the middle block deck.

The 150cc fuel tank is large enough to keep you running longer than most others, so you don't have to stop for fuel as often. A complete set of rubber-sealed ball bearings keeps everything spinning smoothly through the nastiest muck. 17mm hex adapters are used to allow any truggy wheels to fit, and new Hot Bodies tall truggy wheels are included in the kit.

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.

HB D8T June 23, 2010
Reviewer: Joseph Roach from APO, AP United States  
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.
