Quick Overview

1/8th scale off road nitro has been a popular class for years. Hobbyists like to tinker, tune, and have a blast! DHK understands this, which is why they took their highly popular 1/8th brushless Optimus and transplanted a nitro powered engine and polished exhaust system instead of the electric power system.

 DHK Optimus GP 1/8th RTR Nitro 4WD Buggy

1/8th-scale off-road nitro has been a popular class for years. Hobbyists like to tinker, tune, and have a blast! DHK understands this, which is why they took their highly- popular 1/8th brushless Optimus and installed a nitro-powered engine and polished exhaust system instead of the electric power system. Introducing DHK's Optimus GP 1/8th RTR Nitro 4WD buggy. The Optimus GP is a ready-to-run package including a powerful 3.5cc pullstart engine, 150cc capacity fuel tank, and a 2.4G radio that offers interference-free operation!

The Optimus GP has taken some of the race features of other 1/8 nitro-powered buggies and incorporated them into a high-performance buggy without the high cost. A 3.5cc engine with pull starter is the heart of this buggy. Easy to start, easy to tune, and with the included aluminum clutch system, drivers can be assured to have trouble-free operation. With the addition of the over-sized 150cc fuel tank, the Optimus GP is capable of running longer than other buggies in its class!

DHK understands that cars need to be durable and perform well. With an aluminum chassis and upper chassis braces, the Optimus GP is not likely to fold or bend a chassis where the competition would. Aluminum oil-filled coil-over shocks, completely adjustable turnbuckles, oil-filled differentials, and aluminum clutch shoes make the Optimus GP great for bashing, having fun, or going to your local track to test the jumps. Using front and rear universals with a complete bearing-supported drive-train, the Optimus GP's engine provides a smooth power transfer to the wheels, tank after tank. Simply add a glow starter, some AA batteries, and car-based model engine fuel - and let the fun begin!
