Rc8t4e Electric 1/8 Off Road Team Kit...
RC8T4e Electric 1/8 Off Roadway Team Set

1:8 scale off roadway racing is among the pastime's most difficult disciplines; it requires a high standard and demands attention to information. The most recent advancement to come from Associated Electrics' Location 51 is developed to push borders of efficiency and build upon the number of awards collected by the RC8 series. (See the listing of notable wins in Manuals & Setups.)

RC8T4e Team Set Includes

4 battery configurations to select from:

Two twos shorty "saddle pack" LiPo batteries for lowest CG and exceptional weight predisposition

Two twos complete size "saddle pack" LiPo batteries for using capacity batteries

One fours shorty LiPo battery for streamlined setup and more centralized weight predisposition

One fours complete size LiPo battery for streamlined setup and capability to use your existing batteries

Ingenious front-end geometry with lowered kingpin disposition steering obstructs places the wheel pivot in the center of the front tire for increased stability and consistent steering through the entire steering toss

Paired with a new wider upper suspension arm pivot

Gearboxes specify to front and back:

Front gearbox features a 3.5deg. likely pinion equipment angle to correct the alignment of the center driveshaft for increased drivetrain performance and lowered phasing and vibration

Rear gearbox features a 0deg. pinion equipment angle and center installed rear chassis brace install

Both gearboxes feature bigger bearing sizes over RC8B3. Switching to a 6x13x5mm flanged bearing (from a 6x12x4mm non-flanged) leads to longer life of bearings and ring and pinion gears

Decreased hardware on anti-roll bar cap for easy assembly and maintenance

Increased strength in common locations of part fatigue; particularly around the pinion equipment and external cap bearing fitment

Upgraded front upper suspension arm design

An included molded hinge pin bushing to decrease slop and boost suspension dynamics

Rear wing install has adjustable wing angle shims, considerable strength improvements, an aerodynamic shape, and extra clearance for shock position adjustment

Two wing height options are readily available to tune the rear downforce

3 wing angle positions: 0, -2, and -4 deg.

The enhanced design likewise secures the wing installing nuts so that they will not spin in the install

The four wing install screws into the rear tower access from the rear end of the buggy for streamlined maintenance

Rear wing has more vertical fins for increased straight-line stability, a taller rear wickerbill height for increased downforce, increased strength in different locations to decrease bending fatigue, and dimples on the behind as a design template for cutout holes

Two wing buttons are included for additional tuning options: the first is a standard one-piece flat button and the second is a vertical supporting fin for even more straight-line stability

Rear chassis brace has numerous design functions and flex options:

Rear brace is installed centrally to the gearbox, which minimizes material fatigue, centralizes shear forces, and improves the life of rear end drivetrain parts

Has three different chassis flex options using two chassis hole installing locations

Use both screws (most rigid)

Use one screw, long location

Use one screw, short location (most versatile)

The upper brace joint has two flex tuning options at the gearbox

With included molded inserts that avoid twisting and only enable flex along the centerline pivot of the brace

With optional turnbuckle ball for flex in more degrees of liberty

Detachable insert to personalize the amount of flex in the brace

+1mm offset rear hub features a balanced left and ideal common design with axle height inserts for adjustable roll center tuning

The standard bearing size utilized is an 8x16x5mm flanged however the hub will still accept 15x21x4mm bearing for CVA axle tuning options

Two-piece securing motor mounts produce protected installing and allows for installing of a 30 mm motor fan

The equipment mesh is adjusted from the bottom of the chassis, just like RC8T4

+2 mm taller front shock tower design with upgraded suspension geometry and body install positions for all styles of truck bodies

Run a single focused body post install for "bruggy" type bodies

Run two offset body post mounts for standard "truggy" type bodies

Run an included leading plate installed body post for bodies utilizing "buggy" front end installing points

Longer shock shafts and shock rod ends

35.5mm front and 44.5 mm rear shock shafts

0 mm, +2 mm, and +4 mm shock rod ends are included for tuning droop and up-travel for different shock positions

Other Functions

Steering bellcranks with top-mounted steering rack for extra clearance around gearbox assembly

Aluminum steering rack developed around the upgraded front end geometry is lightweight and durable

Steering bellcrank nuts are longer to decrease drag from the steering rack under flex

Upgraded steering servo linkage features a new strong threaded ball and steel screw joint

A and B blue aluminum suspension arm mounts are formed to interlock with the RC8B4 chassis

RC8T4e particular 7075 aluminum difficult anodized chassis functions updates to strengthen the front and rear droop tab locations and an increased width along kick up location

Upper suspension arm link install is substantially wider than RC8B3 series, offering the needed geometry for the brand-new lowered KPI steering blocks

Front chassis brace is the very same length as the "short" version from RC8B3 for perfect front end flex

Spring cups and shock rod end design has a locking screw to keep the cups in location during a crash and has actually enhanced material; the very same hard material as our 1:10 rod ends

Front shock bushings are 1.5mm longer than RC8B3 shock mounts

Rear shock bushings are 4mm longer than RC8B3 shock mounts

Big size, Low-Profile SHCS are utilized throughout the truck to replace a standard screw/washer system

Exhaust hanger install and spring

Carbon fiber radio tray brace for repositioned steering servo

152mm rear center and RC8B4e 104 mm dog bones (utilized on the front) with 14mm pins on are now standard devices for increased drivetrain performance

Rod ends have actually enhanced thread engagement, slotted location for easy turnbuckle wrench access, and are made from a same durable material as our 1:10 rod ends

CVA axle has a "stub" design with retainer sleeve to catch pin and utilizes two 8x16x5mm flanged bearings (the like the RC8B3 universal axle setup)
