Default New HotBodies 4WD buggy

Looks like this is the new entry level/basher/fun version of the D4

Is it just front wheel drive, or does it have a bendy rear prop to go over the stick pack?

if you look through the hole in the rear upper deck it looks like part of a CV, so they could have done something like the durango. i dont know if you guys where being sarcastic with the comments or not. if you where disregard what i just said

i hope they do what they did with the cyclone and relese it as a sport kit and a RTR. i would rather have a kit over a RTR.

sarcastic? no I genuinely can't figure out how they have done it - it doesn't look like the spur is high enough but maybe it is.

Maybe the rear drive is a belt and they have managed to get the belt to squeeze through gaps you wouldn't have thought possible, like this un-named Tamiya driver.

or maybe there is a gear coming off the spur and one off the front of the rear diff and the rear propshaft sits higher than usual?

It looks like a smaller shaft at an angle because there's a shaft sandwiched between two rear top decks

Hi,

it's like the TRF501 and the Durga.
Here it's the HB D4 and the new buggy.

Greetings
Mathieu

The spur does seem to be significantly higher than on the proper D4.

On the original car you only get about 5mm of the spur sitting above the top deck, but on this the centre of the spur is almost in line with the top deck.
