TLR04006 8IGHT-T E Electric Truggy Kit

When developing the 8IGHT-T E 3.0, the Team set out to create an electric platform that was every bit as dominant as its nitro-powered sibling. But instead of simply converting the nitro chassis, they reexamined everything and came up with a new chassis layout and suspension setup specifically for electric power.

Aluminium Chassis Designed for Electric Power
Rather than adapt the existing 8IGHT-T™ 3.0 nitro chassis, the Team engineered an all-new chassis that has been widened and balanced specifically for electric power. It is milled from lightweight, 4mm 7075-T6 aluminium and has been hard anodised for maximum durability.

Special Updates and Tuning Options
The chassis gives racers multiple ESC and battery mounting locations. This makes it possible to easily relocate components when tuning the vehicle’s balance for varying track conditions. Specific suspension components such as springs, shock pistons and sway bars have also been updated to better complement electric power systems.

The 8IGHT-T E 3.0 gives you the ability to position the battery forward or backwards on the chassis to give you the optimum weight bias in the car

Battery Configuration 2

Large-Bore 16mm Shocks and Tapered Springs
The large volume shocks are easier to tune and remain more consistent during temperature change. They feature tapered springs that provide greater clearance while reducing the chance of spring cup ejection during extreme impacts. Machined pistons are included for greater precision and increased performance.

CNC Shock Towers
The front and rear shock towers are machined from 4mm 7075-T6 aluminium and hard anodised for maximum durability.

Adjustable Pivots
The kit includes hard anodised adjustable front pivots and low roll centre rear pivots with adjustable bushings.

Optional Parts Included
Many of the parts included with this kit are popular upgrades that will give you everything you need to build a Team spec truggy right out of the box. This includes lightweight outdrives, adjustable hinge pin braces, an aluminium servo saver top, aluminium rear bearing inserts and more.

Electric Version Body and Adjustable Rear Wing
The body shares many of the same lines with the nitro version body but extends the rear stabilisation fin so that it meets the rear of the cab. The adjustable rear wing includes a .250 and .500 inch spacer that lets you move the wing back for extra stability on high-speed tracks.

Everything, from the layout of the  chassis plate to the suspension components, has been tailored  for electric power
