RC Network: Hot Bodies D413 – Unboxing


The Hot Bodies D413 is part of the revolution of 4WD Buggies. It’s 1:10 size screams 1:8 roots and with the engineering of Torrance DeGuzman and at the control of Ty Tessman, this buggy will be at the front of any competition.

What makes it so revolutionary? 3 fluid filled, geared differentials, triangulated shock towers, monocoque a arms and infinitely adjustable to start. Then add a flip/flop battery design to accept either shorty pack Lipos or saddle packs and a cool formula one influenced 4 piece body and you have a great project!

Here’s where I got mine and some info from Hot Bodies:…

The HB D413 is the long-awaited successor to the D4 buggy that took the off-road racing world by storm just a few short years ago. Now, with off-road electric racing gaining more and more popularity by the month, we’re ready to formally introduce you to the D413!

The HB D413 first turned a wheel at the 2013 ROAR Nationals in the hands of Ty Tessmann, one of the fastest racers on the planet and lead test driver for all of the off-road HB projects. Ty stole the show at the World’s Warm-Up, winning both the 2WD and 4WD classes, and when he showed up at the ROAR Nationals at the same track just a few months later with the D413 in hand, it was all systems GO! and no one could stop him from taking another ROAR Nationals victory – this time in electric!

Designed over the course of just one year by star RC designer Torrance Deguzman, the D413 is designed for adaptability, durability, and win-ability! With the D413, drivers can choose the best battery layout for their driving style and the track surface, and its extreme toughness means you can hoon the car around the track and not have to worry about overdriving the car to the point of breaking. The D413 can dish out the punishment, AND take it just as well.
