Team Losi Racing has released the 8IGHT-XE 1/8-scale electric buggy kit which features an array of performance and handling enhancements. Featuring a wide chassis and redesigned suspension geometry, this competition kit should provide plenty of speed on the track.
Along with the previously-mentioned updates, the 8IGHT-XE also includes a lightweight aluminum motor mount, adjustable caster blocks, and an improved steering rack.
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)
- Steering servo
- Battery and battery charger
- Polycarbonate paint
