Straight from Nuremberg

The Nuremberg Toy Fair brought us plenty of new releases, and the all new Losi 1/8 8IGHT-E 4.0 4WD Kit was at the top of the list in the surface department. The 8IGHT-E 4.0 builds on existing design by updating the shock geometry and drivetrain layout, making it easier to drive.

Here's what Losi has to say about the all new 8IGHT-E 4.0: Two different center plates for the bottom of the chassis are included. The stock center plate puts the motor and differential directly in line with the chassis. The optional center plate rotates the motor and differential 4.4 degrees, creating equal angles between the front-center and rear-center dog bones. This provides more balanced power to the front and rear of the car under acceleration.

The chassis offers two locations for the battery and ESC. With the battery in the forward location and the ESC in the rear of the car, the vehicle has more forward weight bias which improves stability on high-speed tracks. Moving the ESC forward and the battery to the rear mounting location provides a rear weight bias that increases corner speed and makes handling more agile.
