New from HB Racing is the E819 electric 1/8 buggy. The E819 takes all of the improved features introduced on the 2019 DNC E-Buggy champion E817 V2, and adds a host of new features designed to make it faster and more durable. A new chassis adds 2mm to the wheelbase for improved handling and jumping. Revised rear hub carrier graphite plates and thin hex hubs enhance track performance. The E819 drivetrain features a heavy duty machined & lightened steel spur, 43/13 front and rear differentials, and a revised 36mm rear center dogbone. Now topping the E819 kit is the popular JConcepts Silencer S15 clear body. All of the new parts are backwards compatible with the E817 and E817 V2 buggies, and the E819 is compatible with most HB spare parts and option parts. The new E819 follows the HB Racing concept... constant evolution to stay at the front of the pack.
Carried over from the D817 V2 are steel Universal Joints that are favored by our Team Drivers for improved performance on bumpy tracks, hard anodized machined aluminum 17.5° front caster blocks that have been strengthened for improved durability, and our narrow rear shock tower that has been a favorite of our Team Drivers for its more useful range of adjustment. Revised rear shock length is optimized for the new rear shock tower. New aluminum front linkage geometry spacers replace the plastic spacers for improved bumpsteer geometry, more precise adjustment, less flex, and we revised the screw lengths to accommodate the new spacers.
The E819 has been updated with a new +2mm 7075 aircraft aluminum chassis, and a new 36mm center rear drive shaft for a perfect fit with the new chassis. Standard equipment includes the race-proven HB 4WD system with high strength steel center drive shafts, 43/13 differentials with tough sintered gears, precision machined steel input gears, a heavy duty spur gear, and our popular thin hex hubs. We carried over the two-piece CNC milled aluminum motor mount that keeps the motor securely in place, and allows motor changes without having to readjust the gear mesh. To decrease drivetrain rotating weight the steel spur gear is lightened, as are the diff outdrives and center inputs.
The E819 suspension features the unique HB Racing monocoque suspension arms that allow fine tuning of the stiffness of the front and rear arms to suit track conditions and driving styles. Racers can adjust the grip and feeling of the arms using optional stiff arms and carbon plates to increase the torsional stiffness of the suspension arms, which gives the car a more forgiving feeling at the limit, especially on high-speed and high-traction corners. Increased clearance ball end links are included for extended suspension travel without binding, and updated body mounts.
HB Racing big bore threaded coilover shock absorbers help soak up extreme bumps, jumps. And the suspension includes front and rear machined hard anodized aluminum shock towers, adjustable turnbuckles, front and rear sway bars, hinge pin inserts for easy toe and anti-squat settings, machined aluminum caster blocks, steering blocks, and new rear uprights with improved geometry.
The E819 steering system is built for durability and easy adjustment. It features an aluminum servo saver arm and clamping servo saver adjustment nut, steel turnbuckles, aluminum drag link, highly adjustable Ackerman geometry using steering knuckle plates, and CNC machined hard anodized aluminum steering blocks.
The E819 has a fully adjustable battery mounting system that can handle a wide variety of battery configurations. When using Shorty packs, multiple mounting points allow you to easily move the weight bias fore/aft to help tune the balance of the car. The batteries are held in place securely, and mounted directly on the chassis for the lowest CG possible.
Topping the E819 is a clear JConcepts S-15 buggy body and a durable HB molded nylon. Our popular one-piece High Wing Mount is standard equipment, which raises the wing 10mm higher than the low wing mount, putting the wing in less turbulent air flow which helps produce more downforce.
The new E819 takes the best features of the standard E817 V2 and adds the latest new features. The result is an electric 1/8 buggy from HB Racing with legendary durability and race-winning speed.
Complete E819 instruction manual and decal sheet included.
The E819 accepts standard 1/8 buggy wheels and tires, motors, batteries, and radio equipment.
Optional arm mounts, stiffer suspension arms, steering blocks, caster blocks, steering arms, rear hub carrier arms, sway bars, and shock springs are available to tune the E819 to any track or driving style. Spare parts and option parts are shared with most of our 1/8 nitro and electric buggies, so they're readily available at hobby shops around the world.
