1/8 Hobao rallycross car

I think a few at Mendip have bought the BSR Basher. It's ready to run for 200, just need to get some batteries.


Not sure how they compare to the Hobao. They usually re-brand an existing car, for instance my BSR 4WD is a Team C. I think the 1/8th maybe a Team C GT8LE according to below.

Theres a big thread here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2397364

There's a few with the BSR at Mendip now, cars is solid as a rock, and is basically a road going Team C buggy so no problem with spares at all. Springs are a little on the hard side but Hobo springs are softer and fit ok ..

Most have gone for the Hyper GT .. which is a rolling chassis and needs electrics but they're cheap and the car is a good performer.

Best price is from John at RC Octane, Mendips local shop - http://rcoctane.co.uk/index.php?route=common/home

He doesn't have them listed on the website yet, but they're going for 175 as a roller .. give him a call !!!

My BSR basher painted up with the Protoform PFRX bodyshell ready for tomorrow :thumbsup:


Danosborne6661 20-06-2016 09:37 AM

Ace meeting with the rallycrossers yesterday :thumbsup:

Also good to see so many new people with cars! The cars were really good in the rain, wasn't too hard to get them sideways :woot: For anyone that may be interested in running a car, I've seen some really cheap 8th electric buggies on ebay! All you would need is body mounts, a shell and a set of tyres and you'd be good to go.

For anyone running the BSR basher, I had mine going really well yesterday.

- Shocks - 50wt all round, kit Hobao GTB springs all round (part numbers H90077, H90078), shocks all led down on the towers
- Diff oil - Front 20,000, rear 10,000
- Bodyshell Protoform PFRX
- GRP Revo S4 tyres

Other than that, kit!

Were you running the BSR Basher 2s or 3s as looking at the Stock spec it says 2s just wondering just in case i get one.

The brilliant GRP S4 wheel/tyre combo that we use are now available at a great price from RCOctane ...

Doesn't look like they're listed on the website yet but give John a ring and he'll sort out !!!


VanRoy 13-07-2016 06:35 PM

Hi all before I go and order a BSR has anyone got a 8th Rally car for sale .... also apart from a Lipo and wheels and tyres is there anything else i need ???

Dombrasky 13-07-2016 08:39 PM

19 or 20 tooth pinion..mod 1 for a 5mm shaft

VanRoy 13-07-2016 09:30 PM

Many thanks. Is it in my interest to change shock oils etc ??

Dombrasky 13-07-2016 10:56 PM

setup and shock oils you can alter to taste later ...I did mine as there was some shocks that had air, or not much oil in them
