Aluminum RC8T Extended Chassis w/Skid Plates & Driveshaft by M2C Racing
This product was added to our catalog on July 28, 2015.
This is an optional M2C Racing Aluminum Chassis with included Skid Plates, intended for use with the Team Associated RC8T 1/8 Nitro Truggy.
This chassis is made using 1/8 inch (3.25mm) thick 7075 aircraft grade aluminum materials and clear anodized. Use of this material greatly increases the overall life of the chassis.
This chassis also features a weight forward design to help with forward bite and turn-in characteristics. To achieve this, the chassis was slightly stretched out, making the Mugen MBX7T drive shaft necessary, but it is included with this package. Some other parts are required to finish the installation (see Needed To Complete below).
To further add tuneability, this chassis features extra 3mm countersunk holes in the back, just in front of the rear diff, to allow the installation of optional M2C chassis weights. These weights will help provide more traction if needed.
Other features include tapered milled out clutchbell area to help prevent striking during extreme flex and chamfered leading edge on the chassis to help prevent drag.
Replaceable Skid Plates
This chassis features unique skid plates that mount flush on the underside of the chassis. As normal wear happens, the replaceable skid plates will wear and can be replaced as needed, leaving the chassis fresher longer, making this chassis suitable for tracks with high wear characteristics. Additionally, since the skid plates mount flush with the underside of the chassis, they will not effect droop settings or scrub speed on landings.
