CARBON FIBER ARM STIFFENERS
FOR THE LOSI 8
NEW FROM INFINITY BY X FACTORY

 
 
Great news for all drivers who have struggled with the super-soft control arms on any model of the Losi 8, gas or electric! These great new carbon-fiber arm stiffeners from Infinity by X Factory take out all the flex while adding strength.


You saw the initial prototypes on one car during practice at the recent World Championships in Italy, where substantial performance improvement was noted. Chief Engineer Paul Sinclair has re-worked the design, adding strength and stronger fasteners, and recent testing has gone perfectly.

Here's what you get: four stiffeners (one for each arm), all necessary bolts and nuts, correct size drill bit for the 2.5mm screws and instruction sheet (not pictured).

Make your Losi 8 handle as the car was designed to do, make it much more predictable, and lower your lap times -- all with the new Infinity CF arm stiffeners by X Factory. Part # I202, CF arm stiffeners for the Losi 8, will be available before the month is out at fine hobby stores and on the X Factory web site.

Enlarge this picture for top view of installed stiffeners. Not all of the screws have nuts to maintain clearance.

Stiffeners are carefully machined to fit snuggly with curved sections of the arms.

Notice how the pockets cut into the stiffeners allow them to fit snugly against the curved portions of the arms.
