  • Hard Anodized Chassis: The hard anodized aluminum chassis provides the perfect platform for this 1/8 thoroughbred electric buggy. Strong, super-durable and machined to incorporate precision hardware mounting holes, the DEX408v2 will perform consistently.
  • 16mm Big Bore Shocks: 16mm big bore shocks are at the heart of the DEX408v2's ability to handle the most extreme track conditions. Combining rugged anodized aluminum construction with silky smooth shock shafts and a dual tapered piston assembly, the DEX408v2 will soak up the jumps and lay down the traction.

Incorporating a wide range of updated rear shock and rear camber link adjustments, your DEX408v2 can be perfectly tuned as the racing conditions change.
  • Tapered Angled Hole Pistons: The unique tapered, angled hole shock pistons will give your DEX408v2 super smooth suspension action and the ability to fine tune the handling characteristics with a simple change of shock oil.
  • Lighter Diff Gears: Lighter composite diff gear parts will assist in transferring the brushless power efficiently while reducing rotating mass of the the differential assemblies.
  • Updated Drivetrain Geometry: The DEX408v2 now benefits from revised drivetrain geometry that includes a straighter rear diff output assembly for increased driveshaft efficiency and reduced friction. Combine this with the already race proven ultra smooth internal diff gears and you can be certain that the DEX408v2 is designed to be as smooth as it is fast.
  • Redesigned Dual Position Rear Hubs: The dual position rear hub carriers give the option of creating different rear end handling characteristics in seconds. Position one will provide higher traction during cornering, with position two providing a more progressive cornering action on surfaces with high traction.
  • Redesigned Rear Suspension Arms: The rear suspension arms not only give the DEX408v2 amazing bump handling characteristics, they also form the basis of a redesigned rear end geometry with an ultra low rear diff and adjustable rear roll center settings for improved weight transfer in low traction environments.
  • Shock Adjustment Nuts: Aluminum shock adjustment nuts allow for precise ride-height and shock pre-load settings in seconds.
  • Multiple Link Adjustments: Multiple front and rear camber link adjustments, combined with upper and lower shock absorber settings, provide you with a buggy that can be 'dialed' into any track in minutes.
  • Hook & Loop Battery Straps: Your battery packs get a snug and secure fit with custom hook & loop straps. The DEX408v2 will easily accommodate ROAR legal cells with the flexibility of increasing your power capacity and battery size as you get faster on the track.

Been the owner of a rc8.2e, mugen mbx6 and 7, kyosho MP9 and this car is the best I have had. Went together like a dream, very clear instructions and the quality of parts are very good (spares are one if the cheapest too) Can't complain as this car has it all build quality, durability (of the MP9) and fully customisable to any track. This car make me look like a champ, jumps like a dream!!!

You can't go wrong...)
