Full Racing Spec
The SSX 8X is the most advanced ⅛ scale nitro on-road race car for the EP (Electric Powered) class. It has been designed to totally dominate the race track with innovative features and proven racing components. With a selection of the latest state of the art design and testing processes combined with the highest quality parts, it’s ready to race and win right out of the box! The SSX 8X is ready for the top step of the podium!Designed by racers for racers!
Aerospace Grade graphite
The strength of the SSX 8X starts with extra-thick plates of aerospace grade prepreg carbon sheets, from the main chassis to the upper deck pieces and suspension parts. Only the best woven graphite is suitable for this high-end racing car! Multiple layers of carbon fibres are laid between extra-strong resin coatings forming the ideal material with which to construct a race car. Team Corally racing engineers have designed the carbon plates in the best ways possible to merge with the aluminium bulkheads and braces to make the SSX 8X stiff where it needs to be stiff, and flex where it needs to flex - giving you the ideal amount of traction right when you want it on the track!
Extra-Strong Aluminium Braces
Thick billet blocks of extremely strong aluminium are CNC machined to form the braces and bulkheads that critical parts of the SSX 8X will bolt to. Together with the aerospace grade prepreg carbon fibre, these form the majority of the car to create a super-stiff cage of space-age materials that protects critical electronic components while creating a stiff chassis for the suspension components to work with.
Laydown Battery Box
The dual battery layout of the SSX 8X allows the battery boxes to fully lay down to give a LCG (Low Centre of Gravity), giving you the best handling properties possible. With the heaviest components of the car mounted as low as possible in the chassis, the SSX 8X already has an advantage over the competition! The chassis can fit dual 2X ‘shorty’ type batteries, dual standard length 2S batteries or dual standard length 4S batteries for maximum racing power.Optimised LCG for the best handling!
The SSX 8X is packed full of innovative features that make it easy to tune and fun to race! A 2-finger carry handle makes it extra-convenient to transport the car from pit to track, a floating motor fan keeps the powerplant extra-cool in all conditions, the secure transponder mount makes sure your laps get counted, and a handy cable management system make sure the SSX 8X is the easiest to race electric ⅛ on-road chassis! These are all in addition to standard features like quick-change axles and super-tough chassis parts designed to live at maximum speed!Intelligent Features Designed for racers!
One look at the front suspension will reveal possibly the most unique thing about the SSX 8X: there are no shock dampers on the car! A simple system of upper and lower carbon graphite plates form the suspension arms, providing all the flex necessary for the front suspension. There are no shocks to rebuild or service, and no oils, springs or ride height settings, making the car super-easy to work with!Innovative suspension design!
Pivot Ball Front End
Taking a proven and extra-durable suspension system from ⅛ on-road nitro racers, the SSX 8X ball system to adjust the front camber and track width is super-strong and quick to access. Simply fit a hex wrench between the spokes of the wheel to access either the top or bottom adjustment screw for fast camber adjustments so you can get on the track quickly. The plastic housing bolts to the carbon fibre suspension arms with 4 steel screws for ultra-secure fitting and maximum durability.Super tough front end
Simple Caster Tuning
The SSX 8X front upper suspension arm, consisting of the woven carbon graphite plate, is simple to adjust for more or less front caster. Simply unbolt the upper arm from the aluminium bulkhead and move the upper mount forward or backwards to change the caster!
Red callout: Easy adjust caste
Extra-Stiff Rear End
The rear suspension of the SSX 8X uses the chassis twist of the super-thick woven graphite battery plate to control the flex at the back of the chassis. A high-density rubber bushing is attached to the front of the battery plate, and the rear is bolted to the chassis just in front of the motor. This unique setup means there are no shocks whatsoever, and the rear suspension is perfectly tuned to high-traction, high-power racing. The aluminium bulkheads and graphite plates surrounding the motor and axle provide a super-rigid setup that puts all of the motor power straight to the rear axle, which is bolted directly to the rear wheels.Pan car style rear suspension
Direct steering system
The steering system of the SSX 8X couldn’t be simpler: a low-profile servo fitted directly to the steering arms using thick turnbuckles. An extra-durable servo saver is used to protect the servo gears during crashes, and allows adjustment of the steering angles.Super precise steering
No Bump Steer or Tweak
Mounted to the suspension subassembly rather than the chassis, the servo is kept completely clear of the chassis to eliminate bump steer and tweak, making sure that nothing can affect the front tyres except the steering servo and the suspension components.Low CG Servo Mounting
Turnbuckle Steering Arms
Thick steel turnbuckles connect the SSX 8X front wheels to the servo, and are easily adjusted with a Team Corally 5.5mm turnbuckle wrench. Extra-strong ball ends connect the turnbuckles to the ball ends on the servo saver and steering knuckle for increased survivability in case of a crash.
Versatile Motor Mount
The SSX 8X rear pod will accept a wide range of gearing options, plus a huge variety of competition brushless motors such as the Velox 805 so you can simply bolt in your motor and be ready to race as quickly as possible. Easy access to the pod lets you access wires and solder points without removing any other components.
Rear Axle Bearing Inserts
The aluminium bulkheads on the rear pod of the SSX 8X use plastic inserts to help protect the axle and bulkheads from damage and excess wear. The plastic inserts protect the bulkheads and bearings, and can be replaced very easily as a wear item.
32DP Spur Gear
The SSX 8X rear axle uses standard 32DP spur and pinion options to give you a huge range of gearing possibilities. With a finer pitch than other ⅛ nitro cars, you have a wide set of options when it comes to choosing the ideal gearing for each race track you visit, plus the smaller size means the gears are less likely to strike the ground or tyre in tight corners, plus the motor is closer to the axle, increasing efficiency and maximising the weight balance of the car. The pinions fit standard 5mm motor shafts to fit all commonly available ⅛ scale brushless motors.Standard size gears for easy tuning
Front One-Way Bearings
The front axle of the SSX 8X is fitted with the strongest, race-proven one-way bearings for maximum efficiency and durability. You’ll get the same driving experience from the SSX 8X as you would from a nitro-powered ⅛ scale on-road racer, making the transition from nitro to electric as easy as possible!Strong One-Way Bearings
The thick front driveshafts are extra-durable, machined from high-strength steel and designed to last! Super-tough outdrives lead from each side of the front one-way bearing, with extra-thick steel dogbones feeding into the long steel quick-release axles. A polished steel pin and red-anodised, spring-loaded retainer keeps the wheels securely in place until they need changing.
Powerful Belt Drive
The belt connecting the SSX 8X rear axle to the front wheels features extra-strong construction such as super-tough teeth and Kevlar reinforcement for maximum drivetrain efficiency, minimal drag and extra-long life. Ball bearing-equipped belt tensioners front and rear allow you to adjust the belt to extend its life as it stretches.Easily Adjustable Belt Tension

Sturdy Body Mounts
With universal style body mounts front and rear, the SSX 8X can fit bodies from a range of manufacturers, allowing you to experiment with quickly swapping bodies for various tracks and driving styles. The front mounts are lightweight, hollow aluminium and mounted to an extra-thick woven graphite plate which is angled to match the nose angle of most racing bodies. The rear mounts are made of the same materials, and transmit 100% of the rear downforce directly to the rear tyres.Graphite & aluminium body mounts
Wide Front Bumper
The extra-durable SSX 8X front bumper fits securely to the front of the graphite main chassis, providing protection to the body, front suspension and chassis in the case of crashes. Moulded from thick yet flexible plastic, it has enough ‘give’ to bend during impacts yet stays stiff during normal racing. The wide and flat underside also helps suck the front end of the car down to the ground for maximum downforce when combined with a GTP or LMP style racing body.Maximum protection
