Losi's 8IGHT-E 4-Wheel Drive RTR Buggy

By: Tim Gluth

Losi has introduced a new 1/8-scale buggy for you performance-fiends. The new 8IGHT-E RTR is a 4WD, electric ready-to-run RTR, competition buggy that’s built for speed. With electronics capable of handling 4S LiPo power, this looks to be an impressive option for those looking to up their racing game.

This RTR model includes waterproof/water-resistant electronics, a complete 2.4GHz radio system, and is powered by a 2500kv brushless motor (Dynamite Fuze). All of these components are mounted to a lightweight and durable aluminum chassis plate.
