New from HB Racing is the RGT8-E 1/8 scale 4WD electric GT Class race car.
Already a winner on the racetrack, a pre-production RGT8-E driven by HB Team Driver Rosario Giaimo took pole position and the A-Main win in the 1/8 Electric GT class at the 2018 European Championships. The RGT8-E is based on the race-proven features of the RGT8, and adds the blistering speed of electric power.
The RGT8-E has a fully adjustable battery mounting system that can handle a wide variety of battery configurations. When using Shorty packs, multiple mounting points allow you to easily move the weight bias fore/aft to help tune the balance of the car. The batteries are held in place securely, and mounted directly on the chassis for the lowest CG possible. A two-piece CNC milled aluminum motor mount keeps the motor securely in place, and allows motor changes without having to readjust the gear mesh.
