IGT8E 2019 1/8th electric GT kit

Building on the IFMAR World and multi-time National Championship winning IGT8 platform comes the IGT8E 2019 electric GT kit. New features include an updated front shock tower made of carbon fibre that provides improved steering and increased corner speed while the rear tower design stayed the same as with the 2017 version, however an optional shock tower and extension combo is available if more rear traction is required. New for 2019 is also a super lightweight aluminium rear bulkhead that provides better gear support and heat dissipation. It utilises 5x16x5 bearings for reliability while the bevel gear received an additional E-clip for security and easier maintenance. The centre of the chassis houses a new low-profile battery mount that lowers the battery pack by 10mm while offering a super low weight and a sliding-design motor mount ensures quick and easy, yet reliable gear mesh adjustment. The rear differential utilises a machined aluminium case for smooth differential action, stiffer satellite gear support and heat dissipation. Also part of the 2019 package is a laydown steering servo mount radio tray whose design allows to add a 40mm fan unit for motor cooling purposes. On the suspension side of things the 2019 variant comes with updated FF and RR brackets with the front mount allowing for zero degree of suspension pin inclination while the rear mount reduced the toe by half a degree.
