Key Features
Durable 4mm hard-anodized 7075 T-6 aluminum chassis
Improved suspension geometry
Variable motor and center differential angles
Dual battery and ESC locations
Large-bearing spindles and hubs
15 caster blocks with adjustable spindle height
Aluminum shock caps with threaded bleeder holes
Molded driveshaft and dog bone boots
Aluminum shock towers with updated camber link and shock location holes
Cab-forward body

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.

Revised Suspension Geometry
New suspension geometry makes it easier for drivers of all experience levels to turn faster lap times with fewer mistakes, particularly when harnessing the power of a high-output brushless motor system.

Variable Motor and Center Differential Angles
Two different center plates for the bottom of the chassis are included. The stock center plate puts the motor and differential directly in line with the chassis. The optional center plate rotates the motor and differential 4.4 degrees, creating equal angles between the front-center and rear-center dog bones. This provides more balanced power to the front and rear of the car under acceleration.

Two Battery and ESC Locations
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.

Large Bearing Spindles and Hubs
Front spindles and rear hubs have been revised to accept a larger 8 x 16 x 5 outer bearing for increased durability.

Adjustable Caster Blocks
The adjustable, 15-degree caster blocks make it possible to tune dog bone plunge by changing the height of the spindle.

New Bleeder Shock Caps and Seals
The new bleeder shock caps and internal seals allow for easier rebuilds while using an emulsion shock setup. New bushings that press into the shock cap further improve durability.

Driveshaft and Dog Bone Boots
Molded rubber boots on the CVAs and center drivetrain dog bones increase U- joint life by holding lubrication in and keeping dirt out.

Redesigned Shock Towers
The machined aluminum shock towers have new camber link and shock location holes that give racers more tuning options for changing track conditions.

Cab-Forward Body
The cab-forward body moves aerodynamic pressure further forward on the car, which improves steering.

I bought a juicepax racelite battery off the bay last year. I was laughed at in 17.5 buggy till I started winning alot.The quality of that battery alone convinced me that the quality is definitely there. All my 1/10th are fixed with hobbystar systems and soon batteries. Love the prices for the quality! I deal with John B, excellent guy. I also bought a charger and gonna stock up for motorama. Gonna brag the crap out of rcjuice and hobbystar. Love the name and the products! Not sure why Im tryin to sell you on it, you already know lol

I wonder what that triangle is for? Seems to be under the Diff? or maybe between the diff and motor mount?

it is part of the system used to angle the motor/diff mount. There are two plates with the screw holes slightly off to the allow the screws to seat correctly in the two diff angle options.
