Looks even more impressive now that we can see underneath, and looks like they've beaten JQ to be the first manufacturer to put a centre diff back into an electric 1/10 buggy.

Pity tho that the interviewer doesn't realise that centre diffs in 4wd buggies were quite common back in the 80's

No slipper clutch? Smooth throttle finger then.

Slippers on a 4WD I'd say would mainly be for protecting the drivetrain, the forward traction is plentyful, and I'm not sure you notice a much smoother power output on a 4WD unless you'd put something the likes of a Losi Hydra Drive on there? (After all 4WDs are both driven agressively and built to do so by nature).

So if HB is confident about the strength of their drivetrain and electric motors, plus the capability to keep parts cool (particularly motor), why not?

Didnt have to be, the performance the car delivered spoke for itself.

Default god knows

Hot bodies/HPI always show pictures then spend an age getting a kit out. At least they tend to stay out for awhile though

I doubt it will work on very high grip astro as it will eat the drivetrain then the motor and then bang the designer said it works on 1/8th buggies but they have a clutch and the motors on electric 1/8th are alot bigger and stronger
Just add a slipper hb

It also works on SC trucks (such as the DESC410), right? If so, I don't see the problem.

That said, it doesn't necessarily mean I think it's a wise choice to remove it. This car will really miss a slipper on low-bite (dusty) clay, even more so because it's shaft, not belt drive. However, I do like it that they've put a center diff in, it's about time someone did that with a 1/10 buggy again, I can imagine it will make a 4WD much smoother!

Intriguing buggy to say the least!! I have a TRF201 and 501X beefed up to 511 standards, looking for a new 4WD and this could be it (I'm a Tamiya guy but the 502 seems outdated by the D413 [gear diffs/center diff etc]) since I run on hard clay/dirt tracks only. Don't wanna switch from TRF blue yet but this buggy is hot (no pun intented). I'm just a little worried about sourcing parts here in the Valley.

The DESC410 has a slipper clutch as well as a centre differential - best of both words... but, you are correct in saying that the car will miss having a slipper on a low grip bumpy track. It seems odd to me to go to the trouble in adding a much-needed centre diff to a modern 4wd then do away with the slipper.

On another forum the designer has said with a centre diff you dont need a slipper clutch- this is simply wrong and poor engineering. They fulfill totally different functions. Still, its better than nothing and in many other respects this looks like a very impressive buggy

I checked the page again, and I can't understand why I have always overlooked that so far!

They've probably got the durability worries covered. Despite that, I can imagine we'll see a slipper for this car sooner or later: If it's not to protect the drivetrain for less skilled drivers (much like Xray's XB4 couldn't always handle what club drivers did to it), it will be because not all drivers have the same throttle control skills as Ty Tessmann (and are all over the place when the grip's not there)
