Chassis

A moulded carbon plastic chassis provides a rigid and lightweight platform. The front and rear plates of the chassis are replaceable for quick inexpensive chassis maintenance.

The Ve8's motor is way up front, keeping the weight as close to center as possible.

A sealed receiver box keeps the electronics in a safe environment and away from dirt and debris.

Optional mechanical brake function is included with all the necessary components and mounts to get you stopped in a hurry. Not only does this give you added tuning ability with brake bias (not possible with motor brake) but it also keep your motor and speedo cooler which might come in handy when your throwin' down some serious lap times!

As with all HB kits, the weight is super low. The lower your weight is, the harder you can push your corner speed!

Suspension

World Championship proven steering geometry provides the car with quick responsive steering without jeopardizing strength. Once again drawing on our D8 knowledge, our super-sized shock package is the largest in its class allowing the Ve8 to withstand the largest of jumps and bumps.

CNC-machined suspension mounts hold the hinge pins in place without e-clips anywhere. The captured hinge pin design makes maintenance easy!

Drivetrain

The Ve8 uses extra heavy-duty spiral-cut diffs to get the power from the driveshafts to the wheels. Six steel universal dogbones are used for the center driveshafts and at each corner to get the power from the middle diff to front and rear diffs, and also from the diffs to the wheels. The optional 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.

Elle n'a rien de nouveau cette auto...

Ca fait plus d'un an qu'elle est sortie.

Elle est distribuée par Avio&Tiger qui importe HPI/Hotbodies en France.

C'est un très bon châssis, dérivé du D8 Hotbodies, dont il reprend les trains avant et arrière, ainsi que la transmission.

Le comportement sur la piste est vraiment bon (j'en ai eu un pendant quelques courses) et l'auto est très équilibrée.

Ces deux gros problèmes sont une place limité pour l'accus (tous ne passe pas sur l'auto) et pour le moteur.

Mais aussi un support moteur pas terrible (qui peut être remplacé maintenant par un option nettement mieux et dans le style de ce qui se fait sur les autres TT 1/8e Brushless).

Personnellement, j'ai changé pour un HPI Vorza (tiré lui aussi du D8) pour ces deux problèmes.
