ARC R8S 1/8 Electric Stock Class Pan Car


ARC have released a first rendering of the forthcoming R8S 1/8 Electric Stock Class Pan Car. The R8S uses the same body shell and tyres like the existing 1/8 on-road chassis platform. His new and innovate design makes R8S to be able to use different Li-Po batteries such as 2S stick style packs, or 2S shorty style packs. This configuration allows to install battery packs horizontally flat in order to lower the center of gravity, or vertically in the center of the chassis. The chassis can also accept a 4S pack thus five different battery configuration can be use in the R8S. The different battery layouts provide different weight distribution options to achieve the best performance. With the none-independent suspension design, the R8S provides easy maintenance and yet still retains many flex joints that allow fine tuning for different track conditions and handling. The R8S will be available in August.
