Features

Hard Anodized Chassis with Tuned Flex Technology (TFT) 2.0

The 8IGHT 2.0 chassis offers added stability and handling across all track conditions. This increased stability gives the 8IGHT 2.0 the ability to carry more speed into and out of corners, and to glide across washboard sections with ease. Tuned Flex Technology also provides significant handling gains by responding precisely to changes in terrain without sacrificing balance and grip handling improvement.

Racing Suspension Geometry

The suspension on the 8IGHT 2.0 features numerous shock mounting locations for several options in adjusting the suspension setup. The front carrier also features two camber link positions while the rear has four, allowing for even greater customization to varying track conditions.

Racing Suspension Geometry

Heavy Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

With the increased horsepower demands of 1/8-scale truggy racing, Team Losi Racing reengineered the dogbones and outdrives of the 8IGHT 2.0 to stand up to the abuse. These heavy-duty components have been designed to withstand the power and abuse associated with serious off-road competition.

Heavy Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

Lightweight Aluminum Shock Towers

The alloy shock towers on the 8IGHT 2.0 are strengthened and lightened at the same time. By optimizing the design for rigidity, Team Losi Racing engineers were able to reduce the weight for better on-track performance without sacrificing handling or strength.

Sure-Close Fuel Tank Closure

Every second counts on race day, and fast fuel fills are crucial to getting back in the race. With a new, Sure-Close fuel tank design, the tank lid is designed for automatic, positive closure each time, preventing air from getting in the fuel system or affecting performance.

Sure-Close Fuel Tank Closure

2 Sets of racing wheels included

The 8IGHT2.0 Kit includes two sets of wheels without the tires so you can choose the tire, tread pattern and compound that best suits your racing needs.

The 1/8-scale 8IGHT 2.0 4WD Buggy Kit features over thirty revisions and improvements to the revolutionary 8IGHT buggy chassis. The 8IGHT 2.0 Buggy proved to be the fastest buggy in qualifying by taking Top Qualifying honors at the 2008 IFMAR 1/8 Buggy World Championships.

The chassis on the 8IGHT 2.0 has been extended an additional 2mm to provide increased stability and speed. The chassis’ Tuned Flex Technology provides significant handling gains by responding precisely to changes in the terrain without sacrificing balance and grip. Steel chassis droop stops have also been added to ensure consistent down stop settings.

The 8IGHT 2.0 includes updated steering geometry which features a servo saver with increased consistency. Additional gains in steering precision were made by incorporating a pressed-steel bushing in the Ackerman brace, which reduces friction over the entire range of motion. The suspension on the 8IGHT 2.0 allows for customization with numerous shock mounting locations, two camber link positions on the front carrier and four on the rear.

A revised radio tray on the 8IGHT 2.0 optimizes the position of the servos, while increasing response time and reducing stress on the throttle servo. The Sure-Close fuel tank ensures positive closure and prevents air from entering the fuel system.

The 8IGHT 2.0 features high-quality 7075 aluminum shock towers that reduce weight for improved on-track performance without sacrificing handling or strength. The dogbones and outdrives of the 8IGHT 2.0 feature improved steel materials to withstand the abuse of competitive racing. The rear hub design incorporates an updated inner camber link, a revised shock tower and simplified camber locations and the durability of 3.5mm outer rear hinge pins.

The rear gear box on the 8IGHT 2.0 has the capability to shim the rear ring gear from the pinion to ensure ultra free drivetrain. Also included on the  8IGHT 2.0 is a left-side keyed insert to improve durability.
