Xray release XT8’22E 1/8th truggy

Xray have released full details on their new XT8E’22 1/8th electric truggy platform. Sharing most of its updates with the recently announced XT8’22, it features a new chassis plate with wider rear section for increased stability as well as mounting provisions for a graphite brace for additional flex adjustment and chassis weight mounting locations for easier balancing. New front and rear arms sport a stronger, reinforced design that minimises flex in high temperatures for better handling and steering. Stronger and longer conical servo saver spring has an improved adjustment range while an all-new servo saver with chassis locked posts for more secure installation. A new lower front shock tower has improved geometry for increased corner speed and stability while shorter shock absorbers work together with the new tower geometry for improved handling. A new E concept allows for two different layout alternatives the first with rear motor position with a single battery position on the left, or front motor position using saddle pack batteries in the rear. The kit includes two graphite servo holders, one for each motor/battery configuration and a 2-piece battery holder for saddle pack layout improves balance and lowers vehicle CG. The standard battery holder is moulded from new harder material for reduced flex, while there is a compact electronics mount for speedo and receiver when using the saddle pack battery configuration.
