ARC have introduced the new R8.1E 1/8th scale electric on-road car kit. The R8.1E is based on the successful R8.0E platform with some new features such as a new front bulkhead with an adjustable belt tension so the driver can adjust both the front and middle belt tension easily. The rear bulkhead adopts an all-new design similar to the R8.1 nitro version and the new anti-roll bar gives more rear end traction and stability. The adjustable rear axle remains se same and it is easy to adjust the rear beld tension.
The R8.1E features also a new rear suspension block. By moving both rear arms and shock tower to the center prosition., it increases the traction and stability of the car. The transmission remains a 3-belt design and perfectly positions through the centre of the chassis, it helps to centralise both the battery and motor location. The R8.1E also comes with CVD drive shafts and light aluminium wheel axles on both front and rear sides for optimised performance. ARC recommend to use a 2800kv motor and two 2S LiPo batteries.
