Adjustable Caster BlocksThe 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 SealsThe 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.
Ball Bearing ActuatorsThe revised throttle actuator now uses bearings to further improve throttle and brake response. It also features a new brace that prevents flexing.
Large Bearing Spindles and HubsFront spindles and rear hubs have been revised to accept a larger 8 x 16 x 5 outer bearing for increased durability.
TLR04003 1/8th 8IGHT 4.0 Nitro Buggy Kit
The story of the 8IGHT platform is the story of a champion - one that encompasses multiple ROAR national titles in addition to major wins on the international stage. The 8IGHT 4.0 buggy builds on this championship-winning heritage with updates to the suspension geometry and drivetrain layout that make it both easier to drive and 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 during brutal, hour-long mains.
Optimised Drivetrain Layout
The engine has been repositioned to reduce front driveshaft angle so more power makes it to the front wheels.
Ball Bearing Actuators
The revised throttle actuator now uses bearings to further improve throttle and brake response. It also features a new brace that prevents flexing during heavy braking.
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.
Revised Chassis Side Guards
The chassis side guards have been updated for a better fit. They also feature indentations for the Velcro body strips.
Large-Footprint Engine Mount
In addition to its new position, the engine mount has been designed with a larger footprint that substantially reduces chassis flex and fatigue underneath the engine when racing on high-grip tracks.
