Pro Level Race Ready

The 8IGHT-XE ELITE now includes the option parts our elite level race team utilizes to win races around the world, thus making for a vehicle that is high level competition ready right out of the box.

New Aluminium Motor Mount

Lightweight and durable motor mount that aids in heat dissipation and is easy to adjust for quick gearing changes. The motor is now mounted to the chassis rather than hanging off the centre diff for added durability.

Equalised Driveline

The centre drive shaft angles have been modified so they are equal front to rear allowing for a more 4WD feel to the vehicle.

Improved Suspension Geometry

The 8IGHT XE ELITE suspension geometry has been completely revamped making a car that is fast, nimble, and easy to drive. This includes a myriad of updates including longer front and rear arms, wider front pivot with less scrub radius, narrower rear pivot, and updated hub offset.

Shock Tower

The 8IGHT XE ELITE now includes black anodized machined 7075-T6 aluminum shock towers with updated camber link holes previously included with the 8XE.

Lightweight Battery Mounting System

The 8IGHT XE ELITE features a newly designed battery mounting system that not only saves weight, but it also makes battery installation and removal quick and easy.

7075 3mm Aluminium Chassis

A new ELITE chassis that moves weight forward and decreases wheelbase is included to give the car more overall grip. Chassis width has been increased from the 4.0 to X to aid in stability and give the buggy a more neutral feel.
