The 8IGHT 4.0 buggy builds on this championship-winning heritage with updates to the suspension geometry and drivetrain layout that make it both easier to drive and tougher to beat. With new suspension geometry, this will make it easier for drivers of all experience levels to turn faster lap times with fewer mistakes, particularly during brutal, hour-long mains.
The engine has been repositioned to reduce front driveshaft angle so more power makes it to the front wheels. This buggy’s throttle actuator now uses bearings to further improve throttle and brake response. It also features a new brace that prevents flexing during heavy braking.

It also features a new brace that prevents flexing during heavy braking. Front spindles and rear hubs have been revised to accept a larger 8 x 16 x 5 outer bearing for increased durability. The chassis side guards have been updated for a better fit. They also feature indentations for the Velcro body strips. In addition to its new position, the engine mount has been designed with a larger footprint that substantially reduces chassis flex and fatigue underneath the engine when racing on high-grip tracks.
