It is something they are testing now and sounds like may be out soon. Something Adam likes for loose tracks or blown out conditions to soften the bottom end punch of an electric car to make it feel more like a nitro. Not something I want but I am an electric guy so...... Each there own. Adam knows what he is doing.

I am all most tempted to get a nitro chassis and conversion for mine.
The e-buggy may be a little siffer. I was developed for indoor running as well as outdoor. There are always trade offs for running in different conditions for the stiffness of a chassis. The e-buggy has proven to work well indoor as well as Phend winning the national title with it outdoor on a slick track.

As I understand it, the only difference between the E and nitro tower is some additional holes in the E tower.

If Adam Drake does not use these new holes in the E tower, then there would be no difference between using the E or nitro tower.

I guess?

Hes roughly in the 4 hole of an e tower.

How the 8ight e 3.0on indoor clay and outdoor loamy ? What does this buggy do well and what does it lack if anything at all? How does this compare to tekno and mugen? Trying to make my mind up? No local 1/8 parts at the tracks I run. but 8 -12 buggy out every week.

I like mine 10x more than I liked my eb48. It is much more stable. It is easy to achieve a locked rear end while still having plenty of steering....

The Nitro tower works with different camber link options. They are interchangeable.

This is quite the opposite of what I'm trying to achieve.. cos I'm an electric driver and just recently decided to get a 3.0 nitro buggy, I'm trying so hard to set it up like my 3.0e. For me the biggest thing I miss (apart from the more direct/responsive feel) is the drag brake.

my 2c;
I don't see myself ever needing a clutch of any sort on the 3.0e, adjusting punch or even just adjusting the way you throttle up seems like a better option to me.

Theres a lower hole drilled out just like his nitro car here. It lines up roughly with the 1 hole on the ebuggy tower.

You can set your nitro brakes were the rear brakes actually just start to rub not lock but where they will be engaged when you get off the throttle and slow the car like drag brakes do. You can adjust with your turnbuckle linkage.
