Capricorn C803EP 1/8th electric on-road kit

Following a first teaser image, Capricorn have fully unveiled their C803EP 1/8th electric on-road kit. Based off of the successful C803 nitro car, the electric-powered variant features an updated radio tray design to accommodate dual LiPo shorty batteries to comply with the latest EFRA rules, while the 1-piece motor mount allows for easy gear mesh adjustment and the use of motors with both M3 or M4 screw mounting pattern. On addition the motor mount utilises a carbon fibre motor fan mount for 40mm units to keeping the motor temperatures down. The side belt tensioner also received an update to work with the new motor mount and the single speed transmission makes use of nitro 2nd gear gears in the 56T to 58T range as well as 23T to 25T pinions. Capricorn recommends 2600kV brushless motors although been slightly slower 2100vK motors can be used.
