The motors include a special plastic part that optionally covers the solder tabs and that acts as a guide for the sensor wire if needed.

LRP S8NXR 1/8 Buggy

LRPGerman company LRP introduce the new S8NXR 1/8th off-road buggy, updated Blast models, a new speed controller and charger and many more. Starting with the S8NXR buggy, the vehicle is designed from the ground up in-house and shared virtually no part with the current S8 line of buggies. The car features the usual 1/8th buggy ingredients such as aluminium chassis, big bore shock absorbers, fibre brake discs and highly adjustable suspension but also a versatile radio tray with enclosed receiver and battery box as well as an adjustable front mounted carbon fibre RX battery holder that can hold hump-style NiXX and LiPo battery packs. The buggy on show is a prototype but according to LRP the release is not too far away.
