A great truggy starts with a great buggy. The 8IGHT-T™ 3.0 truggy benefits from the same engineering and expertise that made the 8IGHT™ 3.0 buggy a ROAR National Champion. Everything from the suspension geometry to the body and wing design has been refined so it is easier for racers of all skill levels to drive faster and lower lap times. Superb handling, combined with the ability to handle the most powerful engines and toughest tracks, make the 8IGHT-T 3.0 truggy a true contender for the world stage.

Features

Improved Suspension Geometry

The suspension geometry is refined to give racers of all skill levels a neutral handling truggy that is easy to drive fast. 15-degree, non-inclined caster blocks raise the spindle, allowing the vehicle to soak up bumps with less dog bone plunge. Redesigned front arms improve front wheel clearance and increase steering throw. Camber and shock locations on the shock towers are optimized for quick and easy tuning.

Improved Suspension Geometry

Large-Bore 16mm Shocks with Tapered Springs

The large bore shocks are easier to tune and include machined pistons and shock bushings for greater precision. The tapered shock springs provide more spring-to-arm clearance and a progressive rate that keeps the ride plush over rough sections of track while still providing plenty of bottoming resistance for landing large jumps. Larger volume bladders with improved durability are also included.

8IGHT-T 3.0 Body And Wing

The body is a refined version of the revolutionary 8IGHT-T 2.0 truggy's cab forward body. It's complemented by a new rear wing with larger side plates that improves air flow and provides greater down force. An optional wickerbill system is included so you can fine tune stability for different track conditions.

Center Dogbone Drive System

Front- and rear-center dogbones eliminate the friction of a CV coupler and reduce the bind caused as the front center CV coupler wears.

Center Dogbone Drive System

Optional Parts Included

The kit comes with an impressive collection of optional parts that includes lightweight outdrives, a lightweight spur gear, adjustable hinge pin braces, a hard-anodized flywheel, an aluminum servo saver top, aluminum rear bearing inserts and more.

Optional Parts Included

Gen III Radio Tray

The Gen III Radio tray provides better weight distribution and helps prolong servo life with molded index points that improve linkage alignment. A ball bearing-mounted throttle tri-horn keeps engine response smooth and precise. The switch location has been moved for easier access and the metal J-nut that secures the battery box reduces wear on the radio tray from chassis flex.

Gen III Radio Tray

New Designed Ring And Pinon Gear

Newly designed 12T pinion and 47T ring gears for the front and rear greatly improve gear mesh and tooth engagement. The transmission cases are also made from a stiffer material for more consistent gear mesh under load, and paired with the new gears, there are no issues with gear skipping or excess wear.
