Webbing added between inner mounting tabs to ensure hinge pin fitment. Mold updated to increase strength. Suspension arms have been designed to accept stiffener plates that will allow racers to tune the flex of the suspension. The Elite kit will include both molded plates and carbon plates.

The front and rear diff case have been altered to allow easier access to the differentials without removing the bulkheads from the vehicle. The front diff case has been updated to allow better fitment of the front arms while the rear case has been updated to increase the strength of the area holding the shock tower.

 

Optimized Shocks
Optimized Shocks

The 8IGHT XE ELITE shocks are optimized and lightened to decrease the center of gravity and lower the weight of the car as well as offer the use of both 3.5mm and 4.0mm shock shafts.

 

Cab Forward Style Body

A cab forward design helps with overall down force, which improves steering and overall stability. Cut lines have been updated for ease of installation and changing of settings.

 

Equalized Driveline

Larger Pinion Bearing
Larger Pinion Bearing

The pinion bearing size inside the front and rear gear boxes has been increased for added durability.
