there is a video about the new system on the LRP site...
"LRP S8 BXe – First video of the new 1/8 electric buggy!
Take a sneak peek at the prototype LRP S8 BXe Team live in action. The video is available for download from the LRP-Homepage!
The S8 BXe was first presented to the public two weeks ago at the Nuremberg Toy Fair. Particular features include the compact construction, the high-end components and the incomparable power off the line.
Two features of the S8 BXe stand out further than the others: The VECTOR 8 X12 motor and the SPX8 speed control.
The new VECTOR 8 X12 is based on the incredibly successful Vector X12 which caused a stir at the last IFMAR Touring World Championships with its incredible power and performance. This motor is the born winner – incorporating the completely new and revolutionary XTEC X12 Technology! This powerhouse is kept in check by the SPX8. This is going to be the combo to beat!
