1/8th On-road Vehicles ARC R8.3E 1/8th Electric On-road car kit juin 3, 2021 by Chris 2 Comments ARC have introduced their new R8.3E 1/8th On-road Electric competition car kit. The R8.3E comes with a 5mm carbon fiber chassis offering reduced weight and excellent flex characteristics in order to deliver superior mechanical grip. The transmission keeps a 3-belt drive system through the center of the chassis. The belts and pulleys are the same specifications as the R8.3 1/8th Nitro On-road car. The integrated 3-piece upper deck connects the front bulkhead to the rear along with a fan mount for cooling the motor. The upper deck design complements the main chassis to provide optimized flex, but at the same time, reduces the likelihood of the belt flipping over the pulley. The new motor mount and a new internal ratio of 2.4 allow a wider gear ratio tuning window on the R8.3E from 4.75 to 5.85. Batteries sit either side of the drive system close to the centerline of the chassis to improve weight distribution and lower the chassis roll. The R8.3E features new longer rear shocks that are 3mm longer than the previous shocks. This allows the shocks to be moved closer to the centerline for improved handling characteristics. Further improvements have been made to improve smoothness and sealing to deliver a more consistent rebound.
