Nitro and Electric parts included

All of the items to run either nitro or electric included in one box.

Improved Suspension Geometry

The 8IGHT-XT Next Gen suspension geometry has been completely revamped making a truck that is fast, nimble, and easy to drive. This includes a myriad of updates including wider front pivot with less scrub radius, narrower rear pivot, longer front and rear arms, and updated hub offset.

Flex Tune Suspension Arms

All new suspension arms have been designed to accept stiffener plates that will allow racers to tune the flex of the suspension. The kit will include molded plates with optional carbon fiber plates available separately.

Wider 3mm Chassis

Chassis width has been increased to aid in stability and give the truggy a more neutral feel as well as equalized side to side for equal torsional flex and thinned down to 3mm for weight savings.

Larger Pinion Bearing

The internal pinion bearing size in the front and rear has been increased for added durability.

Cab Forward Style Body

Cab forward design helps with overall down force, which improves steering and overall stability.

Chassis Side Guards

New chassis side guards that have an improved fit onto the chassis.

Large Footprint Nitro Engine Mount

Lightweight large footprint engine mount that reduces flex underneath the engine to eliminate chassis fatigue on high traction race surfaces for nitro.

One Piece Electric Motor Mount

One piece aluminum motor mount that is easy to adjust pinion sizing for electric motors.

Adjustable Caster Blocks

17.5 deg caster blocks that allow the height of the spindle to be adjusted.

Bleeder Shock Caps

Machined aluminum shock caps with threaded bleeder holes for easy and consistent bleeding of oil.

Balanced Chassis

The weight has been moved forward in the chassis to provide a better driving balance to the vehicle and less parts needed to carry.

Ackerman Adjustable Steering Rack

Redesigned steering rack which will allow more ackerman adjustments and an improved servo saver to eliminate bellcrank bind during high loads.

Machined Aluminum Shock Towers

Redesigned machined 7075-T6 aluminum shock towers with updated camber link holes.

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.

Sway Bar System

New sway bar system that has adjustable length links to allow better equalization of each side of sway bar as well as collars that keep the sway bars centered.

Equalized driveline

The center drive shaft angles have been modified so they are equal front to rear allowing for a more 4wd feel to the vehicle.

Updated Radio Tray

An updated radio tray now puts the throttle servo near the engine to eliminate additional linkage. The updated radio tray will ensure the throttle servo is rigidly mounted to avoid any flex by floating the servo off of the center differential.

Optimized Shocks

The 8IGHT-X shocks are optimized and lightened to decrease the center of gravity and lower the weight of the car.

Ball Bearing Throttle and Brake Actuator

The throttle and brake actuator uses ball bearings in order to give a super smooth feel on the throttle.

Large Bearing Spindles and Carriers

All four corners of the vehicle have been updated to use large ball bearings and the same bearings.

Shorter Wheelbase

The wheelbase has been shortened to aid in grip as well as provide more agile handling.

LiPo/Li-Ion Compatible Battery Box

The battery box has been designed so that you can now fit either common LiPo receiver packs or Li-Ion receiver packs.
