IGT8 B8 2021 1/8th nitro buggy

Following a first teaser image back in June, IGT8 have officially unveiled their new B8 2021 1/8th scale nitro buggy. The kit includes several updates such as redesigned front and rear 7075 aluminium shock towers that sport a completely new geometry optimised for the new suspension layout. In addition the rear shock stay features high and low rear wing mounting positions. A 2-piece engine mount comes as standard with a new 3-piece engine mount being available as an option to improve stability and make for quicker engine release. The centre bulkhead design allows to remove the centre diff without having to touch, disassemble or readjust the brake setting for much quicker maintenance and setup. The updated front C-hub is of a revolutionary design that allows to adjust the caster angle in a six degrees to 22 degrees range by simply swapping out inserts. The hub is CNC-machined from high-quality aluminium with the inserts being machined from Delrin for a precise fitting and long durability. Additionally the castor block is fitted with two different roll centre positions.

IGT8 988E drag assisted one-way

Available now from IGT8 and made for the Serpent 988E 1/8th scale electric car is the DAO drag assisted one-way set. The system works with silicone oil to increase the internal friction that slows down the motion of the front wheels when being off throttle. This effect will improve braking, steering at corner entry and it will also help with more consistency and faster lap times. The set includes the needed one-way pulley and it only fits the electric-powered 988E kit.
