The new RX8 2023!
All-new chassis with narrowed front suspension pivots increases stability & traction
More chassis cutouts create greater flex in desired locations
Additional chassis cutouts improve engine cooling
Hard composite suspension arms combined with the improved central chassis flex keeps the suspension geometry stable while the flex is transferred through chassis and radio plate to maintain traction.
Narrower front suspension holders for improved geometry
Longer lower suspension arm shock mounting holders compensate for the narrower suspension holders to maintain the ideal shock absorber geometry
Lower down-stop mounting holders without the eccentric geometry make the car easier to set suspension down-stops
All-new front aluminum bulkheads with a lowered design
New front upper clamps feature integrated upper shock mounting positions, eliminating the need for a separate front shock tower
Innovative front upper shock mounting directly on the upper clamps adjusted via shims provide more flex on front suspension
New front upper bulkhead brace for easy flex adjustments. More stability with the brace installed, more traction and steering when the brace is removed
Lightweight front upper arm holder design
Ultra-compact and super lightweight receiver box moves the weight lower and closer to the center of the chassis
Radio plate with new servo holders moves the throttle servo more rearwards with a more central location for the receiver box
Shorter servo saver stand with key lock design
Fuel tube holders allows to be mounted directly on the radio plate for a clean look
New aluminum rear radio tray holders are super lightweight and reinforced in critical areas to eliminate breakage, using fixed radio tray mounting for improved stiffness
Rear suspension holders are mounted to the chassis with 2 larger screws instead of 4 smaller screws for more security
Simplified aluminum 2-speed shaft holders eliminate unnecessary braces to make the chassis more flexible, while the wider positioning provide improved support for the 2 speed shaft
Pulley bushings are optimized for the fixed position of the pulleys on the 2-speed shaft
New rear aluminum bulkheads have a 2mm front/rear wheelbase adjustment for easy traction tuning depending on the track conditions. Front position more traction, rear position more stability.
Rear suspension holders and milled pockets in the chassis plate reduce the lowest pin position by 1mm to generate more traction when needed
Anti-roll bar bearing bushings front and rear for different thickness of anti-roll bars
New anti-roll bar wire shape to match the new bearing bushings
Full ventilated brake disk included in the kit
2-speed shaft adapter for rear belt pulley uses longer pins for increased reliability
Lightweight one-way carrier for reduced rotating weight
New guide pins provide smooth movement of the brake pads
Return spring shims improve efficiency of the brake pads by preventing spring lock and maintaining free brake movement
New 9mm wider rear PUR belt for increased reliability and lifespan
Front lower bumper with new body mount positions to fit all the different racing bodies
The aluminum front body posts with eccentric mounting that allows frontward or rearward mounting positions
Longer front lower pivot balls account for the narrower front suspension pivot to maintain necessary width adjustments
Graphite rear upper arm holders with more clearance above the rear belt
Sold as car kit.
Engine, muffler, electronic, tires and body are not included.
