Video Overview

 

Nitro and Electric Ready 

Nitro and Electric Ready

All of the parts needed to run either nitro or electric are included in one box.

 

Rear Adjustable Hubs 

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 

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 Aluminum Chassis 

7075 3mm Aluminum Chassis

The chassis is new to the 8IGHT-X/E 2.0 and is made from 7075 3mm thick aluminum 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 

Center Diff Setup

The center diff mount is a new molded 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.

 

Brake Setup 

Brake Setup

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 

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 

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 

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.

 

Front Spindles 

Front Spindles

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 

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.

 

Aluminum Wheel Hexes 

Aluminum 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 aluminum for durability and weight savings.

 

Radio Tray 

Radio Tray

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.

 

Steering Rack 

Steering Rack

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.

 

Wing Mount 

Wing Mount

8IGHT-X/E 2.0 uses the wing mount from the 8IGHT-X Truggy that offers different heights and positions for ultimate traction control.

 

Optimized Shocks 

Optimized Shocks

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 

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.

 

Gear Differential 

Gear Differential

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.

 

Suspension Geometry 

Suspension Geometry

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.
