When developing the 8IGHT-T E 3.0, the Team set out to create an
electric platform that was every bit as dominant as its nitro-powered
sibling. But instead of simply converting the nitro chassis, they
reexamined everything and came up with a new chassis layout and
suspension setup specifically for electric power.
Aluminum Chassis Designed
for Electric Power
Rather than adapt the existing 8IGHT-T™ 3.0 nitro chassis,
the Team engineered an all-new chassis that has been widened and
balanced specifically for electric power. It is milled from
lightweight, 4mm 7075-T6 aluminum and has been hard anodized for
Special Updates and
The chassis gives racers multiple ESC and battery mounting locations.
This makes it possible to easily relocate components when tuning the
vehicle’s balance for varying track conditions. Specific
suspension components such as springs, shock pistons and sway bars have
also been updated to better complement electric power systems.
Large-Bore 16mm Shocks
and Tapered Springs
The large volume shocks are easier to tune and remain more consistent
during temperature change. They feature tapered springs that provide
greater clearance while reducing the chance of spring cup ejection
during extreme impacts. Machined pistons are included for greater
precision and increased performance.
CNC Shock Towers
The front and rear shock towers are machined from 4mm 7075-T6 aluminum
and hard anodized for maximum durability.
The kit includes hard anodized adjustable front pivots and low roll
center rear pivots with adjustable bushings.
Optional Parts Included
Many of the parts included with this kit are popular upgrades that will
give you everything you need to build a Team spec truggy right out of
the box. This includes lightweight outdrives, adjustable hinge pin
braces, an aluminum servo saver top, aluminum rear bearing inserts and
Electric Version Body and
Adjustable Rear Wing
The body shares many of the same lines with the nitro version body but
extends the rear stabilization fin so that it meets the rear of the
cab. The adjustable rear wing includes a .250 and .500 inch spacer that
lets you move the wing back for extra stability on high-speed tracks.
