Keeping with the trend of competition-focused buggy bodies, the lid that’s included with the TLR 8IGHT-XE kit utilizes a cab-forward design. This design choice helps increase front downforce while reducing drag and improving airflow.

As with most other R/C kits, this model requires a few items to complete the build.

  • Radio system (transmitter and receiver)
  • ESC
  • Motor
  • Steering servo
