Default Ofna buggy8e

Picked up an old school OFNA Buggy8E for the collection. Body is banged up. Anyone know what bodies will fit this well? Cant find an actual body for it on Ebay.

OFNA was a distributor, not an OEM... the most common brands of 1/8 buggies they sold were from OEM's like HongNor, HoBao, Himoto and HPI. If you post some pics of the buggy we might be able to help identify the OEM or you can browse those OEM's yourself to see which one you have.

Good Luck!

Got the photo, unfortunately I can't see anything under the body to get any clues what it is... I need a closeup of the steering rack design and front hubs with the wheels removed, there should be enough unique identifiers there to see what you've got

From what I'm seeing so far, I'm betting on HongNor or HoBao, definitely not Himoto or HPI

Here's a Hong Nor Ultra LX2


This is the HoBao Hyper VS2



Notice that HoBao has pivot balls and HongNor has C-Hubs, that will be the dead giveaway which brand you have, but as far as which model will be a little trickier

Not a close up to see the front hubs, but some more clues around the radio tray and steering rack here:
