ARC R8.1E 1/8th electric on-road kit

Coming soon from ARC is their new R8.1E 1/8th scale electric on-road car kit. It is based on the successful R8.0E platform with some new features such as a redesigned front bulkhead that now utilises an adjustable belt tension so the driver can adjust both the front and middle belt tension easily. The rear bulkhead adapts an all-new design similar to the nitro version and the new anti-roll bar gives more rear end traction and stability.

The transmission remains a 3-belt design and perfectly positions through the centre of the chassis, helping to centralise both the battery and motor location. It also comes with CVD drive shafts and light aluminium wheel axles on both front and rear sides for optimised performance. Also part of the package is an all-new rear suspension block. The R8.1E moves both the rear arms and shock tower to a more centred position with the longer arms increasing the traction and stability of the car. The car was developed and tested under the new 1/8th On-Road Racing Modified class rules and ARC recommend to use a 2800kv motor and dual 2S LiPo batteries.
