Thunder Tiger KT8 1/8 RTR Go Kart

Apr 06, 2011 2 Comments by

Thunder Tiger proudly releases the newly designed KT8 Kart. This 1/8 scale kart is packed with awesome features like a gear differential for stability, a sealed gearbox, an easy-change battery tray and standard micro-sized electronics. On-track handling is managed without any springs and shocks but rather by a tuned flex chassis and suspension mounts – just like the full-size racing karts. The realistic nylon-injected bodywork features a nose fairing, separate side-pods, a steering wheel and a driver’s seat to go along with the light-weight driver figure. Slick rubber tires coupled with high density foam inserts mounted on scale appearance wheels offer excellent gripping power.

  • Awesome Finish – 1/8 scale replica of a competition go kart factory-applied body graphics and pre-painted driver figure. Four additional body decals included for replacement.
  • Rear-biased CG – A rear biased center of gravity allows stable handling even on unprepared track surfaces.
  • Real Karting Feel – Rear-mounted motor with rear wheel drive system provides exceptional acceleration, top speed and awesome cornering.
  • Durable Parts – Front fairing and side pods are made of durable, flexible nylon-injected material designed to withstand hard impacts.
  • High-Grip Tires – Equipped with scale slick rubber tires featuring high density foam inserts for great traction. Tread wear indicators let you know when it’s time for new tires.
  • Easy Maintenance – The kart features a low number of parts allowing for simple operation and easy maintenance.
