Capricorn C801 EL 1/8th on-road car
Capricorn released first renderings of their forthcoming LAB C801 based 1/8th electric on-road car. The car makes use of many of the nitro variant’s features such as the aluminium chassis, the 3-belt drivetrain and the suspension components. New for the electric car are the aluminium motor mount and the carbon fibre upper plate that allows the use of three 2S Shorty LiPo battery packs to run the car in 6S configuration. The batteries are held in place by a carbon fibre quick release strap with the speed controller being located atop the motor. Capricorn use a 2000kv motor to power the car that is meant to have an all up weight of around 2500g and that will become available by November.
