Stock chassis conversion kit for popular Hot Bodies D8 buggy and D8T Truggy. Kit includes cnc machined motor mount, single servo/rx box with integrated antenna mount and battery/ESC tray. All items bolt directly onto stock chassis - no modifications required.
Also fits HPI Vorza
All parts cnc machined for perfect "factory" fit and finish
Retains use of stock chassis, mud guards etc. - simple, effective, bolt-on conversion with factory look, fit, finish and quality.
Custom servo/rx box allows access to motor pinion without modifying the motor shaft or stock rx box. Directly replaces stock piece - no modifications.
Integrated battery/ESC tray cnc machined from 1 1/4 pound block of plastic for precision fit. Finished tray weighs only 3 ounces, includes accommodations for most or all 1/8 ESC on the market currently, with matching bolt pattern to allow Tekin RX8 and Castle MMM(with Traxxas esc mount - #5626) to bolt directly to tray. CNC Milled underside allows ESC wires to be routed under tray, resulting in a super clean, easy to remove and easy to service installation. Battery tray allows most available packs to be used - 51.5mm x 160mm inner tray dimensions.
Entire electronics can be removed from chassis kit by simply removing 12-14 screws(depending on if motor or entire center diff/motor are removed) - nothing needs to be unplugged, unsoldered or adjusted. Unique feature allows quick and easy cleaning and maintenance with no adjustments necessary - entire center section including the servo, esc, motor and center diff can be removed or installed in under 2 minutes.
All components promote super low Cg for optimum handling. Weight balance optimized with the stock chassis configuration for predictable and responsive handling characteristics.
Light weight components - entire kit weighs only 6oz and replaces over 12oz of original components(excluding brake servo and rx battery!).
Slipperential (Patent Pending), pinion and optional components and/or electronics shown are available separately but not included with kit - requires Hot Bodies D8 Buggy or D8T truggy kit for conversion.
