RC-Monster XT8 2009 Spec Brushless Chassis Conversion

Mar 04, 2010 No Comments by

New from RC-Monster:

Black, hard anodized 7075 cnc machined aluminum chassis. 5 piece cnc machined aluminum motor mount and center diff assembly. Full conversion features factory looks, with better than factory performance! Engineered to utilize nearly all stock/factory replacement parts for easy maintenance and track side parts availability. Direct drive motor mount system keeps you “connected” to the vehicle like electric racing should be. Motor mount design allows traction aiding chassis flex without disrupting gear mesh – no extra braces or extra weight. Compatible with our Patent Pending “Slipperential” center diff for the ultimate in control and durabilty.

Features:

  • Optimized weight distibution – Motor and center diff relocated to allow all components to mount as close as possible to the chassis centerline – near perfect left/right weight balance produces consistent and predictable handling. Compatible with nearly any battery. 48mm x 168mm low cg battery box allows even large batteries to fit under the body.
  • Light weight – All parts optimized for strength, while minimizing weight. Lightest full chassis kit on the market provides maximum durability, runtime and handling prowess. Easily achieve 15+ minute runtimes without a weight disadvantage.
  • Low Cg – Chassis pocketed under motor to allow lowest possible CG – far superior to nitro equipped vehicles or “stock chassis” conversions.
  • Clean layout – no extra chassis holes or extra components. Chassis layout allows organized components. No extra components and no extra holes. Integrated mud guards keep the chassis clean.
  • Direct drive – like electric should be. Stay connected to your drive train – this is the most efficient drive scenario for electric power. Power delivery can be tuned on your radio and esc. Motor braking is consistent, tunable and puts energy back into the battery pack. No extra rotating weight, extra components or complexity of mechancial brakes. Less parts to fail or tune. Low weight, optimum acceleration and control. Motor is coupled to the center diff, allowing the chassis to flex as intended without affecting gear mesh or accelerating gear wear.
  • Factory fit and finish – assembled kit looks factory made. High quality components cnc machined in the good old USA.
  • Easy center Diff Access – custom 5 piece cnc machined aluminum center diff and motor mount assembly allow access to center diff without removing the entire center assembly or motor. All aluminum “boxed” center assembly maintains maximum rigidity and convenience.

Includes:

  • 3.2mm 7075 cnc machined hard anodized black chassis with built in features for direct mounting of Tekin RX8 Esc, and castle MMM ESC (Traxxas ERevo hold-down required).
  • 5 piece custom cnc machined aluminum Motor Mount and center diff assembly
  • Custom center brace/diff riser
  • Custom battery tray fits most battery packs and allows wire routing under pack for clean installation
  • Single servo mount with integrated rx plate and transponder mount
  • Hardened steel Mod1 pinion

Price: $189.99
