“The 8IGHT-E 3.0 buggy introduced a completely redesigned chassis specifically engineered for electric power. The 8IGHT-E 4.0 buggy builds on this proven platform with updates to the suspension geometry and drivetrain layout that make it easier to drive and even tougher to beat.
New suspension geometry makes it easier for drivers of all experience levels to turn faster lap times with fewer mistakes, particularly during brutal, hour-long mains.
Two different centre plates for the bottom of the chassis are included. The stock centre plate puts the motor and differential directly in line with the chassis. The optional centre plate rotates the motor and differential 4.4 degrees, creating equal angles between the front-centre and rear-centre dog bones. This provides more balanced power to the front and rear of the car under acceleration.
The chassis offers two locations for the battery and ESC. With the battery in the forward location and the ESC in the rear of the car, the vehicle has more forward weight bias which improves stability on high-speed tracks. Moving the ESC forward and the battery to the rear mounting location provides a rear weight bias that increases corner speed and makes handling more agile.
Front spindles and rear hubs have been revised to accept a larger 8 x 16 x 5 outer bearing for increased durability.
