TLR unveils new 8IGHT-E Clutch System

TLR Clutch

See: TLR
TLR has just unveiled their new 8IGHT-E Clutch system. The 8IGHT-E Clutch system provides instant power while increasing traction and decreasing the load on the drive-train. The slip system of the clutch allows improved throttle modulation on bumpy tracks as it will slip under a heavy or abrupt load allowing the vehicle to remain stable. The clutch system also allows for full brake usage without the need for mechanical brakes due to the preloaded clutch shoes. The 8IGHT-E clutch system is a direct fit on the 8IGHT-E 2.0, 8IGHT-E 3.0 and 8IGHT-E T 3.0.

Key Features

  • Converts electric 1/8-scale buggies and trucks to a nitro-style clutch system
  • Provides smoother throttle response, especially on bumpy tracks
  • Direct fit on the 8IGHT-E 2.0, 8IGHT-E 3.0 and 8IGHT-E T 3.0
