Nitro and Electric Ready
All of the parts needed to run either nitro or electric are included in one box.
Rear Adjustable Hubs
The rear hubs on the 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 have an updated pin location as well as are now height adjustable in more increments for fine-tuning and maximum rear grip
Square Insert Pills and Narrower Rear Pivots
All pivot mounts have been updated to use square pills to offer more tunability. The rear pivots are now narrowed to improve the front to rear roll of the car and provide more rear grip in all situations and better-balanced front to rear.
7075 3mm Aluminium Chassis
The chassis is new to the 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 and is made from 7075 3mm thick aluminium and hard anodized for the best wear possible. The chassis is also milled out deeper to allow for more flex and the lightest 1/8 chassis to date.
Center Diff Setup
The center diff mount is a new moulded composite piece offering more rigidity and the new integrated mount for the throttle servo is lighter. The E buggy side will be handled using an updated center diff setup from the 8XT.
The brake cams have been updated and the brakes are now freer and provide better and more consistent braking force and feel.
Front and Rear Shock Tower
The rear shock tower works with the new rear gearbox and pivots. The front shock tower is shorter to decrease the front chassis roll as well as lower the CG. Both have been lightened, new camber link mounting positions, as well as shock mounting positions to provide the tunability and durability racers, are looking for.
Better Diff Access
The front and rear diff case have been altered to allow easier access to the differentials without removing the bulkheads from the vehicle. The rear diff case has been updated to allow for the new C and D pivot blocks.
Cab-Forward Style Body
A cab-forward design helps with overall downforce, which improves steering and overall stability. The body comes precut for ease of mounting.
The 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 spindles have been updated to use 3mm screws for the steering arm for increased reliability.
Front and Rear Universals
The 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 includes universals for the front and rear which are shorter and lighter which makes the car smoother in existing turns and aids in the flow in bumpy track conditions.
Aluminium Wheel Hexes
The wheel hexes in the 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 have been optimized for use with this updated platform. They are hard-anodized aluminium for durability and weight savings.
The steering servo has been moved in and forward to provide a better balance to the car. For the E version, the updated steering servo mount has an integrated ESC mount to get the ESC forward in the car.
The steering rack allows more Ackerman adjustments and an improved servo saver to eliminate bellcrank bind during high loads. Also, the rear mounting points moved in and back allowing the drag link to sway back for a more linear steering feel.
8IGHT-X/E 2.0 uses the wing mount from the 8IGHT-X Truggy that offers different heights and positions for ultimate traction control.
The 8IGHT-X shocks are optimized and lightened to decrease the center of gravity and lower the weight of the car and will include 3.5mm shock shafts. The shock pistons have been altered to allow more blow-by to aid in bump handling.
Insert/Truss Suspension Arms
Long front and rear arms provide great bump handling and stability. The arms are stronger using a truss-style base as well as upper stiffener plates to adjust flex for full tuning abilities. Bushings are used for the inner hinge pin area to provide a worry-free, smooth function at all times.
All three gear differentials now include V2 HD diff cases with composite pin holders, V2 O rings, lightened sun gears, and F/R high traction outdrives. Which provides more grip and a consistent feel throughout the entire run along with quicker acceleration and longer run times.
The 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 next-generation suspension geometry has further been updated making a car that is fast, nimble, and even easier to drive. This includes a myriad of updates including, a wider front pivot with less scrub radius, narrower rear pivot, and updated hub offset, longer suspension arms, and more suspension mounting locations.
Adjustable Caster Blocks
17.5 deg caster blocks are included that allow the height of the spindle to be adjusted up and down for high-speed stability.
Sway Bar System
The sway bar system has collars that eliminate side to side play to provide a more consistent suspension package.
Chassis Side Guards
The chassis side guards have been updated to allow for more room as well as moved back 3mm to provide for tire expansion. The E-Buggy side now has the battery tray moulded into the side guard for a lower center of gravity and lighter weight.
Bleeder Shock Caps
Machined aluminium shock caps with threaded bleeder holes for easy and consistent bleeding of oil. Bladders and Emulsion seals are included for tuning to your track conditions and driving style.
