Off-Road Racing Fun!
Are you looking to step up from entry-level
buggies like the HPI Brama 10B, but don't know where to look? Have
you been thinking about racing in off-road electric classes and
don't want to spend a fortune, but you don't need the latest bright
and shiny Worlds-spec racer? If you answered 'yes' to either of
these questions, the HPI Cyber 10B is the kit for you! The Cyber
10B is an all-new chassis that combines proven racing performance
with a low kit price. You get the know-how of decades of racing
experience from the Hot Bodies racing team, proven World
Championship racing design from the Hot Bodies D4
and loads of off-road fun in a
convenient build-it-yourself kit at a price much lower than any top
If you've already had a play with the HPI Brama 10B or other RTR
beginner kits designed for off-road bashing, you know how much fun
blasting through puddles, mud and leaves can be. The Cyber 10B is
totally ready to take on the roughest obstacle course and keep
coming back for more dirt action! With its full-time 4WD power,
fully sealed shaft drive and long suspension arms, the Cyber 10B
can take on the worst conditions you can find, whether it's your
back garden, an open field or even a local RC racing track - it's
ready for anything! Because the Brama uses standard RC components
such as motor, speedo, battery and radio, you can even install the
electronics from a Brama right in the Cyber 10B...and when you're
ready for more speed, it's easy to drop in a faster motor, more
powerful speedo or longer-life batteries including the latest
brushless technology for the ultimate power!
The Cyber 10B is ready for the track, as well - just like you'd
expect, considering its heritage and background! The suspension and
drivetrain design is taken almost exactly from the Hot Bodies D4
World Championship Edition, which accomplished a stunning milestone
by easily making it into the A Finals at its first-ever IFMAR World
Championship event! For the best control, durability and
efficiency, the Cyber 10B uses a fully sealed shaft drive train
with super-smooth diffs front and rear. The motor is mounted
longitudinally with a transverse-mounted battery pack for fantastic
weight distribution. Bellcrank steering provides precise pinpoint
steering input and the suspension design is taken directly from the
Hot Bodies D4 racing buggy. In short, the Cyber 10B is locked,
loaded and ready to rumble!
The pinnacle of electric off-road racing
has always been 4WD buggies, and now HPI makes it easier than ever
to jump right into this exciting world of fast speeds and amazing
manoveurability! The Cyber 10B draws from the vast experience of
the premiere Hot Bodies racing team to produce a sport-level
electric 4WD off-road racing kit that is unparalleled in
performance, ability, spec and potential! With the Cyber 10B at
your control, you'll have total confidence on the track!

Check out all the amazing features of the
Cyber 10B below!
The Cyber 10B is more than just 'inspired' by the IFMAR Worlds A
Finalist Hot Bodies D4 - it uses many of the same parts and fits
several of the standard D4 parts! What this means is that the Cyber
10B gives you top-level racing performance at a great price. From
shop to track, you can be racing for a fraction of the cost of many
of today's racing buggies!
The Cyber 10B is equipped with composite shocks that are exact
replicas of the shocks that equip the Hot Bodies D4 - they're just
made in precisely moulded plastic instead of more costly aluminium.
They are perfectly suited for the job and work just as well as the
aluminium version, they're just not as flashy! With a threaded body
you can quickly adjust the ride height front and rear, and even set
your tweak for racing! The shocks on the Cyber 10B are a
bottom-cartidge style, designed just like more expensive racing
shocks and are ready to take to any track in the world.
Arms & Hubs from
As you assemble the Cyber 10B, you may notice that many of the
parts look similar to the Worlds A Finalist D4 racing buggy -
that's because the Cyber 10B uses many of the same
suspension parts as the D4 right out of the box!
suspension arms and steering knuckles are taken straight off the D4
and used on the Cyber in combination with similar suspension
geometry, making this a fantastic race car!
With a full complement of stainless steel suspension pins, the
Cyber 10B is durable enough to take on big-air jumps, track
barriers and the rigors of hardcore racing right away. The inner
hinge pins are held in place by individual suspension mounts
attached to the chassis, not the gearboxes. This keeps the
suspension doing its job properly, and makes replacing any parts a
simple process. There are also no e-clips used anywhere in the
Wide Range of
The suspension of the Cyber 10B allows you to make nearly any
adjustment you need to get it dialled in to any surface. Durable
steel turnbuckles are easily adjusted to change front and rear
camber and front toe settings, and a selection of camber link
locations let you alter roll centre for minute but important race
tuning options! Multiple shock locations allow you to make big
adjustments to the car, with 3 upper and 2 lower mount locations at
both the front and rear. The composite shocks will also fit the
full range of Hot Bodies D4 option springs!
Taken directly from the Hot Bodies D4, the ultra-smooth steering
features a super-strong bellcrank design with an adjustable
cam-style, spring-loaded servo saver. Ackerman settings can be
easily changed if you desire, but the steering is set up out of the
box to be perfectly suited for most drivers on nearly any track.
The steering arms turn on ball bearings for the ultimate in
The Cyber 10B features a full-time 4WD shaft drivetrain - the
racing standard for the top level of electric off-road racing. From
the fully sealed spur & pinion gear to the ball diffs and steel
axles, you can be sure the Cyber 10B is up for racing action with
powerful motors and plenty of juice! Read on to find out more about
this amazing spec buggy!
The story of the drivetrain starts with the extremely strong and
rugged motor mount. Made from three pieces of tough cast aluminium,
the motor mount consists of an eccentric cam that is bolted to the
motor, then an upper & lower mount that the cam rotates within.
Loosening the upper mount lets you rotate the motor to get precise
alignment and gear mesh for a truly smooth and efficient
To protect the drivetrain from rocks, dirt and other objects found
in the back gardens and race tracks where it will be run, the Cyber
10B uses a shaft drivetrain to deliver power from the motor to the
wheels. Shaft drive is a highly efficient and secure method of
getting power where it's needed, and to make sure the power always
goes where it's needed, HPI designers have fully enclosed every
element of the drivetrain. Right next to the aluminium motor mount
is a translucent gear cover that you can easily detach to observe
the gear alignment - snap it back on and the spur and pinion gears
are sealed away from the elements!
The central spur gear assembly sends the power to the centre
driveshafts, which spin precisely aligned bevel gears inside
enclosed gearboxes front and rear. From start to finish, there's no
way to get damaging sand, pebbles or anything else into the
drivetrain, which means less gear replacement and more time spent
on the track!
Complete Set of
Everything on the Cyber 10B, from the spur gear to the wheel axles,
spins on highly efficient ball bearings. This provides the most top
speed and longest runtime possible from the equipment you install,
making sure you get the most out of your motor and battery!
Really upping the stakes for anyone interested in possibly racing
their Cyber 10B are a pair of ball differentials, which provide
limited-slip mechanics for super-smooth cornering action! The ball
diffs are independently adjustable to fine-tune the handling in the
curves, and are fully rebuildable for racing maintenance.
The Cyber 10B has drivetrain routing over the battery - the rear
diff input shaft is angled up to allow the rear centre driveshaft
to travel just over the battery. This allows the fitting of several
different types of batteries: stick, side-by-side and even
hard-case Li-Po! Batteries are held in place with a secure plastic
strap and two height-adjustable body clips. There's even wire
routing options for the different battery types, whether you are
using stick packs with wires that come out the end of the pack, or
Li-Po packs that use fitted plugs!
There are already several Hot Bodies D4 options available that will
fit right into the Cyber 10B to make it ideal for racing, including
the adjustable slipper clutch that acts like a traction control
system, universal dogbones that increase efficiency, and a front
one-way that gives you loads of extra steering. These will fit
right in to speed up the Cyber 10B!
Steel Dogbones &
To keep the Cyber 10B running strong, it's fully equipped with
strong steel dogbones and diff outdrives, making it durable enough
to take the toughest punishment on the track, or anywhere you plan
to run it!
Plug in any
The Cyber 10B can take any standard RC electronics, including Li-Po
battery packs and brushless motors! Standard stick packs will fit
the chassis as well, as well as standard brushed motors, so you can
find a huge variety of great power units to give your Cyber 10B the
grunt it needs! You can also fit any of today's electronic speed
controllers and receivers, as well as any standard 1/10th scale
steering servo, whether it's the normal long length or the newer
If you're moving to the Cyber 10B from the HPI Brama RTR 4WD buggy,
all of the Brama electronics will drop right in, saving you plenty!
Then, when you're ready to upgrade it's an easy job!
Add Upgrades as
Because the Cyber 10B is a build-it-yourself kit, you can leave it
stock until you're ready to add racing upgrades, or you can add the
options as you build the kit - it's your choice! Many of the
standard parts from the Hot Bodies D4 will bolt right on to give
you additional tuning and durability, including the swaybars,
shocks, universals, front one-way, adjustable slipper and wheels.
Adding the aluminium-body threaded shocks increase the crash
resistance of the Cyber 10B and increase the tuning potential if
you're a racer - plus they look amazing!
Any brand of 4WD front and 2WD/4WD rear wheels will fit, which
means any 4WD buggy tyres will fit also, giving you a massive
selection of tyres to perfect the grip for any type of terrain you
want to race or have fun on.
