New 1:8 Nitro On Road R8 from HB

New from HB (Hot Bodies) is the R8, 1:8 scale, Nitro On Road Car.

Making its premiere at the 2013-2014 IFMAR World Championships in Japan, the HB R8 surprised the RC world with a well-deserved appearance in the Final, before it even had an official name. The R8 is the first car from HB to enter the extremely competitive class of 1/8th Nitro Track racing – commonly known as the “Formula One of RC” because of the speed and complexity of the cars. With a 5mm thick 7075-series aircraft aluminum chassis and bulkheads built for fast settings changes, a 2-piece steering knuckle design and more precision machined alloy throughout the car, the HB R8 is purpose-built from the ground up to be competitive right from the start.
