This is the Hot Bodies D8T "Tessmann Edition" 1/8 Off Road Competition Truggy Kit. Ty Tessmann and his D8T have been the combo to beat at tracks around the world. The standard D8T was already well suited for most drivers on most tracks, but Ty wanted more. With the help of 'Team Tessmann' (dad Gord and mother Leann), Ty has steadily refined the platform, turning it into a truck that has better traction, is faster and more durable than the standard D8T. With a huge number of racing tweaks and personal touches, Ty has made the D8T his own. Now, the Tessman Edition D8T can be yours.
