LRP Updates iX8 for 1/8-Scale Vehicles

1/8-scale vehicles place a lot of demands on electric equipped vehicles and LRP is staying one step ahead by releasing a new version of their successful iX8. This new iX8 V2 brushless speed control is specifically designed for 1/8-scale applications and has new hardware components and new v2.6 Team firmware. Testing has shown that these improvements reduce overall heat and provide more consistent performance along with improved brake control that is helped by the new BR2 brake setting. There is also new Initial Drive settings for faster off-the-line acceleration. We’re hoping to get our hands on one soon and do some of our own testing.
