The HB Racing RGT8 European Champion 1/8 GT Nitro On-Road Combo combines the RGT8 Chassis with the Orion CRF 5-Port V4 .21 1/8 GT engine and EFRA 2149 tuned pipe to provide you with the tools you need to win. Based on the World Champion D815 buggy, the RGT8 is highly adjustable for a variety of track conditions - with race-proven durability and performance.

The Race DNA from the D815 means the RGT8 is race ready and super strong. High performance 2 speed transmission, lightweight gears, rubber CVD boots, steel turnbuckles, machined engine mount and a 3mm 7075 chassis are included as standard. The suspension features 16mm big bore threaded coilover shock absorbers and sti monocoque suspension arms, front and rear sway bars, hinge pin inserts for easy toe and anti-squat settings, updated adjustment of the rear camber link locations plus machined aluminum caster blocks, steering blocks and rear uprights.

Great kit awesome deal with the engine and pipe.

The only problem I had is there is no manual for the engine, fuel or glow plug suggestions can anyone help? Also diff parts are different than the D817 0R D815 because it is 2 speed and amain doesn't carry spares. The center rear dog bone is also different and hard to find. Amain please stock parts and update parts compatibility.
