This is a replacement Hot Bodies Ve8 Main Chassis, and is intended for use with the Hot Bodies Ve8 1/8 buggy.
NOTE: This is the most current version of the Ve8 chassis. The updated chassis has material added to the side of the chassis tub, so the sides of the chassis are beveled to the inside to increase the strength and rigidity.
This product was added to our catalog on September 29, 2009.
In response to the other review: I did receive the updated version.
Amainhobbies states that this is the "updated" chassis. This was not true, in my case. I received the old version of the chassis. The original version of the chassis is flawed. If you get this one, it will definitely fail at some point. My first chassis on the kit, cracked in two places. I got a replacement from HPI, for free, but they sent me non-updated one. Sure enough, after two races, cracks started forming in the same exact spots. I decided to stay with it and see how long it could go. After about 7 months of racing the cracks grew worse and the entire chassis began warping. BTW, I am a very smooth driver and don't crash a whole lot. I decided to give their "updated" chassis a try. Unfortunately, Amain sent me an original chassis and not the one they advertise on the site. So be warned, you may or may not get what you expect. It's sort of a cr@pshoot. I'm done playing Russian Roulette with this thing. I'm going to look for other options.
