Team Energy has developed an all new 1/8 scale racing chassis. This machine is built burly to handle tough terrain while its suspension and controls handle like a precision guided missile. This is a ready to run buggy that you can take to jumps for big thrills or take it to a track for top level racing competition. The G8X gas powered buggy has everything that a basher or racer would want packed into an amazing radio controlled racing vehicle.
The Team Energy G8X has a long list of performance parts, making for the best and lightest buggy on the scene. To start off, the G8X has a full 3mm thick 6061 hard anodized aluminum chassis. The new narrower chassis and side-guards shed weight compared to other buggies while allowing optimized weight distribution of the electronics mounting for improved overall handling.
The G8X also has fresh designed suspension arms featuring centerline shock mounts and an optimized anti-roll bar position. The new suspension arms were designed to work with the aluminum low center of gravity shock towers to improve and optimize the suspension geometry, making the G8X more plush and forgiving in rougher terrain. 16mm Big Bore aluminum and threaded oil filled shocks also help the buggy achieve maximum control over any terrain.
The drive train is also beefed up metal differentials and thick axle cups. Thick drive axles reach out to the wheel hubs with CVD joints in the front and traditional dog-bone style setup in the rear. There are no bushings on this vehicle, every rotating piece is treated with high quality sealed ball bearings for low drag and maximum rolling and rotating efficiency. Thick chassis braces mounted in strategic high leverage points ensure your hard jumps and landings do not warp or bend the chassis.
At both ends of the buggy, the G8X has everything you'd expect from an all-out competition kit, including thick anodized aluminum steering link with ackerman adjustment, adjustable roll center, thick adjustable turnbuckle links, aligned king pin and universal joint pivots, sway bars front and rear, steel adjustable turnbuckles, and adjustable shock mounting positions. There are tons of adjustment that can allow you to tune this buggy any way you want it handle. The factory settings are awesome straight out of the box for a wide range of running situations.
The SH .21 engine has proven reliable after many years of service and that is why it has been chosen for this racing platform. High revving with excellent fuel economy gives this buggy the edge over its competition. Developing a great engine takes time and is achieved through continuous testing and research. This SH .21 is the pinnacle of performance, reliability, and efficiency.
All of the latest Team Energy kits are now fitted with a comfortable and feature-packed Dimension GT3X 2.4GHz radio system for supreme control and confidence. The radio features a pistol-grip design with 3 channel functionality, easy carry handle, fold-down antenna, end point adjustments, servo reversing, steering and throttle dual rates, steering and throttle exponential adjustments, and even channel mixing. It's also extremely lightweight due to it requiring only four AA batteries. The radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically and changes channels if there is any interference. You'll have professional-level control in one easy ready to run package.
The Team Energy G8X is a seriously awesome package. Elevate your buggy game to the next level with the new G8X ready to run kit, and drive what the winners drive!
