Hot Bodies D8T Tessmann Edition

With a focus on performance, reliability and speed, the D8T Tessmann Edition Competition Truggy is a kit designed to do one thing: win. Champion driver Ty Tessmann worked closely with HB designer Torrance Deguzman to refine and develop the already successful D8T, creating the ultimate off-roader for serious racers.

Virtually every component has been upgraded, and during this time Ty has racked up impressive victories with his D8T at prestigious events such as The Dirt Nitro Challenge and the Pro-Line Dual. This is the same machine Ty Tessmann uses to dominate race tracks around the world, and now any aspiring driver can own this high-performance truggy with the winning pedigree!

Hello, my name is Sylvain Lafrance and I am the man behind I have bought my first hobby grade RC in the early 90s. With years, what that started as a simple hobby, quickly became a strong passion. I am so much passionate about R/C that I have created in 2006 to share my experiences with R/C products that I use for racing and bashing. Follow me !
