Following an extensive design, development and testing program, ARC is proud to bring you the new R8.3 1/8th competition on-road nitro chassis kit. The ARC R8.3 features:

1.All-new internal gear ratio; R8.3 FDR is 2.4, improves acceleration that works better for small to medium size track, with the peak of top speed remain same as R8.2.

2.All-new chassis – Front end flex is adjustable by chassis cover, when installed the front chassis stiffens, increasing steering response and avoid over-steering in high traction condition, the new battery plate also come with flex slot to increase chassis flex and stability.

3.All-new upper deck and front bulkheads; New front bulkheads allows easier maintenance for front one-way axle and belt. New upper deck design connects the front upper arm and creates overall chassis flexibility more evenly, making handling less sensitive with track condition changes.

4.All-new shocks; New shocks design improves traction, with 2 soft o’ring inside shock membrane helps maintaining shock rebound. Rear shock extended 3mm and with 2 pieces o’ring at bottom makes the shocks performance more consistent.

5.All-new 2-speed shoe; New design with hard composite formula, the new 2-speed shoes make the 2-speed shifting time more consistent and precise.

6.All-new steering blocks; New front steering block improve handling especially in high traction, uses larger 12 x 21 ball bearing with center axle, the optional backward offset axle insert provides more on-power steering, useful tuning parts especially in low traction track.
