The HB D216 is a pure bred race machine that could revolutionize 2WD off-road racing with its unique features and extreme durability. Sharing the triangulated shock towers, 12mm Big Bore V2 shocks and other details with the multiple ROAR Champion D413, the D216 is much more than a D413 with the front transmission removed. Featuring a triple slipper clutch, adjustable 2-piece caster blocks, mid-motor 3-gear transmission, combined with multiple servo, wing and battery positions.
The narrow carbon fiber chassis allows both transversal or longitudinal battery positions, and the mid-motor-only design provides nimble handling with maximum steering and rear traction. The carbon fiber battery strap and its orange anodized aluminum brace add additional stiffness to the rear of the chassis. The distinct mid-mounted transmission encloses a 3-gear transmission for the most efficient drivetrain possible, with an externally adjustable, large diameter triple slipper clutch. The high volume gear differential is easy to remove from the transmission case for tuning, and can be replaced with an optional ball diff if needed.
The ESC is mounted to the side of the transmission case which helps eliminate the weight of excessive wiring and allows plenty of air flow to keep the ESC cool. The suspension design is an evolution of the D413, with triangulated shock tower mounts, minimalist carbon fiber shock towers, and aluminum camber link plates being some of the obvious design features of the suspension. The biggest single feature, however, are the 2-piece adjustable caster blocks, which allow you to quickly adapt the car to different driving conditions without needing to install different parts. Another innovation is the hinge boss design that sandwiches the hinge pin box between the two halves of the strong and lightweight monococque suspension arms, to make the car super durable and highly adjustable.
