VSR 8IGHT-X 10mm wing shim

See: VSR Products

Coming from VSR and made for the TLR 8IGHT-X is a 10mm wing shim. The addition of the 10mm wing shim elevates the rear wing of the ‘X’, creating more downforce and stability at high speeds, on large jumps as well as bumpy tracks. It was developed with TLR team driver Jason Frank, who had this to say about the effects of the VSR shim:

“The VSR wing shim helped generate more grip and stability from the rear of the car and without a doubt is must have on a bumpy and low bite track.”

The 10mm 3D printed shim comes with 2 metric screws to replace the stock ones.

TLR 8IGHT X-E E-buggy kit

Team Losi Racing have introduced the new 8IGHT X-E E-buggy kit. Based on the 8IGHT-X Nitro Buggy, the X-E features a more traditional ‘wide’ style chassis that increases stability, balance and gives the buggy a more neutral feel. This also allows for the component’s to be spread out instead of cramped together as with a narrow style chassis making maintenance a breeze. To create an easier to drive, more consistent 4wd feel to the 8IGHT-XE, the entire driveline has been redesigned to create a reduced driveline angle on both the front and rear drive shafts. This not only creates an equalized driveline but also reduces wear on key driveline components.
