The SRX8-GT is an all-new 1/8 scale Nitro powered On-road racing car
introduced for the GT class. The SRX8-GT shares many high performance
parts from the successful SRX8 platform. In addition to the details
carried over from the SRX8 platform, we have introduced many new, design
concepts to push the SRX8-GT well into the future as well as set its
self apart from all competition.
Totally New Radio Box
This new SRX8-GT definitely received some love. The radio box has been
completely re-designed to allow for a slimmer footprint, easier access
to the servos and an updated sleek and clean appearance. This radio box
design allowed us to have a lot of new advancements for this car, which
included, as seen above a new updated center diff assembly and super
easy to adjust braking mechanism. The flush mounted transponder and
carbon fiber decals, set this thing apart from anything you have seen
before. The box fits a typical life or lipo 2000 or 2300 stick receiver
pack. You can use either the small transponder adapter and or you can
use the older larger size transponders with no problems. The receiver
opening is spacious so no need to worry about room for your wires, or
whether your receiver is new or older style.
The front and rear gear differentials are fully sealed, adjustable and
light weight. The diffs viscous nature can be adjusted to each track
condition by changing the viscosity of the silicone oil used to fill it.
The ring gear is 44t, while the pinion is 13t, giving you the optimal
gearing for the GT class
The front and rear suspension arms, both feature arm plates that can be
added, removed or swapped out for Carbon fiber. This feature can be used
for a host of reasons, which can include looks and or performance.
Depending on your grip level and track surface, you can adjust the
stiffness of the SRX8-GT’s arms. Generally stiffer arms have a more
linear feel but can reduce grip. This happens by forcing the shock to do
more work. A softer arm can increase grip by reducing the shocks
importance, but can also give the car a less direct feeling. All of
these adjustments can have a huge impact on your lap time and results.
This GT has been given a real treat. The 2 speed shaft was upgraded to
properly accept the SL8 2 speed assembly. Carried over from the 9xx
projects, this 2-speed was an absolute must have for our new GT. Its
lightweight, finer pitch gears increased acceleration, reliability and
lap time. We simply could not imagine a GT without it. 1st gear is a
63t, while second gear is a 58t, all included in the kit.
The Front steering spindle, made from 7075-T6 is black anodized with
silver machined edges. This part is a carryover part from the SRX8. It
also includes a rubber CVD boot to keep the driveshaft greased, to
minimize wear. The steering spindle also accepts 5 different Ackermann
plates. 0,1,2,3,4. Generally 0 is the easiest steering while 4 is more
aggressive. You can fine tune your GT’s steering to fit your driving
needs. All plates can be easily identified by the notch marks in the
side of the plate.
