Starting with the basis of the World Champion D8 buggy, and improving even on the Vice World Champion Hara Edition, the D812 improves the D8 in every way. Monocoque suspension arms allow you to tune the suspension setup for extra flex, more stiffness or even added weights for a completely new feel to your driving. For faster acceleration and quicker in-air pitch control, the drivetrain gears are lighter. New CVD boots retain grease and keep out dirt that can sandblast your drive axles. Aluminium drive axles, caster blocks and rear hubs improve on the already legendary durability of the D8.

The D812 also features the same ease of maintenance and setup that racers have come to love, such as a one-piece radio tray for easy cleaning, and a single CNC engine mount so you can 'set and forget' your gear mesh!

The D812 is completely updated with the latest input from HB team drivers - from the front to rear, the car is fully optimized for top-level racing!

The D812 chassis is constructed from tough and lightweight aluminium, and is designed to be narrow with all of its components sitting as low as possible. The narrowness and low CG allows for the best handling properites, which when combined with World-class suspension design, gives the HB racing team the unfair advantage on the track.

A one-piece radio tray makes maintenance easy and quick, and the one-piece engine mount helps even more by allowing you to remove and re-insert the engine without having to re-set the gear mesh time after time.

The D812 sticks with the suspension design that brought the HB racing team its second World Championship in 2008, followed up with a Vice World Champion position in 2010. A sturdy C-hub style front suspension handles things up front, with aluminium uprights, graphite steering knuckle arms and steel turnbuckles. Aluminium uprights and steel turnbuckles take care of getting the power to the ground at the rear end.

The shocks are the World Champion HB Big Bore shocks, which feature an oil-filled, coil-over design, aluminium bodies with threaded bodies and threaded top and bottom caps. Giving you extra tuning capabilities and controlling the chassis roll at each end of the car are conventional wire sway bars.
