8ight-T 4.0

TLR04005 8IGHT-T 4.0 Nitro Truggy Kit

The suspension and drivetrain refinements engineered into the 8IGHT-T 4.0 truggy are inspired by a single purpose – giving racers of all experience levels a nitro truggy that is easy to drive fast, whatever the track conditions. Other updates, like the large-footprint engine mount and molded drivetrain boots, improve durability. It all adds up to a faster, tougher truggy that can take on the best the competition has to offer, right out of the box.

Adjustable Caster Blocks


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

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.

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 universals and centre drivetrain dog bones increase U- joint life by holding lubrication in and keeping dirt out.

Revised Chassis Side Guards
The chassis side guards have been updated for a better fit.

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