RC8B4e Team Kit Features:   Chassis layout featuring two different shorty-style only battery  configurations. Both configurations include a centrally mounted center  differential and in-line center dogbones for superior drivetrain  efficiency and equalized chassis balance. -Configuration 1: Two 2s shorty "saddle pack" for lowest CG and            exceptional weight bias -Configuration 2: One 4s shorty for simplified setup and more      centralized weight bias over a traditional full length 4s battery.   Innovative front-end geometry with reduced kingpin inclination steering  blocks places the wheel pivot in the center of the front tire for  increased stability and consistent steering through the entire steering  throw -Paired with a new wider upper suspension arm pivot   Front upper suspension arm design -Designed to accommodate a wide range of flex and stiffness options. -Optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex and stiffness and will fit on the top or bottom of the arm. -Includes a molded "wing" insert for increased front-end downforce. -Uses a replaceable molded hinge pin bushing to reduce slop and increase suspension dynamics   Front lower suspension arm design -Designed to accommodate a wide range of flex and stiffness options.  -Optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex and  stiffness -One-piece anti-roll bar link mounts in-line with the anti-roll bar with a BHCS instead of a shock pin for simplified assembly -Optional inserts mount to the top or bottom face of the arm – racers choice!   Rear suspension arm design -Designed to be of optimal flex and stiffness with no insert. However,  optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex -Optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex and stiffness and will fit on the top or bottom of the arm -Angled one-piece anti-roll bar link is mounted in-line with the  anti-roll bar with a BHCS instead of a shock pin for simplified assembly   Rear wing mount has adjustable wing angle shims, significant strength  improvements, an aerodynamic shape, and extra clearance for shock  position adjustment -Two wing height options are available to tune the rear downforce -Three wing angle positions: 0, -2, and -4 degrees -The improved design also secures the wing mounting nuts so that they will not spin in the mount -The four wing mount screws into the rear tower access from the rear end of the buggy for simplified maintenance   Rear wing has more vertical fins for increased straight-line stability, a  taller rear wickerbill height for increased downforce, increased  strength in various areas to reduce bending fatigue, and dimples on the  backside as a template for cutout holes -Two wing buttons are included for additional tuning options: the first  is a traditional one-piece flat button and the second is a vertical  stabilizing fin for even more straight-line stability   Rear chassis brace has several design features and flex options -Rear brace is mounted centrally to the gearbox, which reduces material  fatigue, centralizes shear forces, and improves the life of rear end  drivetrain parts -Has three different chassis flex options using two chassis hole mounting locations 1. Use both screws (most rigid). 2. Use one screw, long location. 3. Use one screw, short location (most flexible) -The upper brace joint has two flex tuning options at the gearbox 1. With included molded inserts that prevent twisting and only allow flex along the centerline pivot of the brace 2. With optional turnbuckle ball for flex in more degrees of freedom Removable insert to customize the amount of flex in the brace   More features: Two-piece clamping motor mounts make for secure mounting and allows for  mounting of a 30mm motor fanThe gear mesh is adjusted from the bottom of  the chassis, just like on RC8B4   Battery trays with battery stops built in for easy battery position adjustments   Oversized hook and loop straps for simplified and secure battery mounting   ESC tray with protective shield has two chassis mounting positions – one for each chassis configuration   Receiver box with built in servo mounts has integrated cable routing and increased volume for fitting larger receivers   Wire routing clips included for clean wiring of batteries and motor sensor wire   Side guards have integrated wire routing clips and are over 1 inch narrower than RC8B3.2e   RC8B4e specific 7075 aluminum hard anodized chassis features updates to  strengthen the front and rear droop tab areas, an increased width along  kick up area, and accommodations for the electric specific layout.   Includes the RC8B3.2 splitting center bulkhead with a new RC8B4e specific center top plate   RC8B4e specific front top plate has been updated to fit the new steering geometry and an offset RC8B4 front chassis brace   Steering bellcranks with top-mounted steering rack for extra clearance around gearbox assembly   Aluminum steering rack designed around the updated front end geometry is lightweight and durable   Steering bellcrank nuts are longer to reduce drag from the steering rack under flex   Updated steering servo linkage features a new heavy duty threaded ball and steel screw joint   A and B blue aluminum suspension arm mounts are shaped to interlock with the RC8B4 chassis   7075 aluminum hard anodized chassis features updates to strengthen the  front and rear droop tab areas and an increased width along kick up area   Uupper suspension arm link mount is significantly wider than RC8B3  series, providing the required geometry for the new reduced KPI steering  blocks   Front shock tower has strength improvements and allows for the upper  suspension arm insert to be mounted from front side via a recessed  pocket, without disassembly of the tower from the gearbox   RC8B4e specific carbon fiber front top plate with offset front chassis brace   Front chassis brace is the same length as the “short” version from RC8B3 for ideal front end flex   Front body post is recessed into the front top plate and the reversible design is easy to mount   Spring cups and shock rod end design has a locking screw to keep the  cups in place during a crash and has improved material; the same tough  material as our 1/10 rod ends   Front shock bushings are 1.5mm longer than RC8B3 shock mounts   Rear shock bushings are 4mm longer than RC8B3 shock mounts   Large diameter, Low-Profile SHCS are used throughout the buggy to replace a traditional screw/washer system.   Two-piece rear body post features a rubber grommet to allow some flex to extend the life of the body   Rod ends have improved thread engagement, slotted area for easy  turnbuckle wrench access, and are made from a same durable material as  our 1:10 rod ends   Longer 5x44mm rear camber link   +1mm offset rear hub features a symmetrical left and right common design  with axle height inserts for adjustable roll center tuning. The  standard bearing size used is an 8x16x5mm flanged but the hub will still  accept 15x21x4mm bearing for CVA axle tuning options   CVA axle has a "stub" design with retainer sleeve to capture pin and  uses two 8x16x5mm flanged bearings (the same as the RC8B3 universal axle  setup)   93mm CVA bones used on all four corners of the buggy   93.5mm front and 104mm rear center dog bones with 14mm pins on are now standard equipment for increased drivetrain efficiency   Rear shock tower features two built in wing height positions; the RC8B4  "low" is the same height as the RC8B3 "high" and RC8B4 features an  additional +5mm height option by adjusting the wing mount adapters, all  easily accessed from the rear end of the buggy   Standard wheel hex sizes include a "+0" mm front and rear   Standard anti-roll bar sizes include a 2.2mm front and 2.4mm rear bar   RC8B4e Gamma body styled by Area 51 engineers for superb aerodynamics,  superior handling, and unmatched beauty. Includes three different style  of gearbox noses: a traditional nose cone, a mid-height wing, and  tall-height wing.   RC8B4e Team Kit Legacy Features:   -V3 differentials with 42T ring and 12T pinion gears for improved gear ratios -Includes new updates to HTC sun and planet gears with removed pocketing  to extend diff life and improve gear mesh and remain more consistent  over long runs. -+2 degree steering block arms -16mm shocks equipped with blue front (8.75 coil) and new green rear  (11.25 coil) springs, 'stiff' style shock bladder, combination  bleeder/emulsion caps, and blue aluminum threaded collars. -RC8B3.2 narrow C and D arm mounts           Specifications: Length, with wing: 486mm (19.13") Width: 304.5mm (11.99") Wheelbase: 321.5-329mm Final Drive Ratio: 12.38:1
