The ultra narrow drivetrain layout positions the brushless motor in the center of the chassis for quicker response, sharper handling, and a plush ride.
The 1/8-scale Xcelorin Sensorless 2100 Kv Brushless Motor requires virtually no maintenance, while offering unmatched efficiency and speed. Additionally, the Electronic Speed Control (ESC) offers tons of programming options, including adjustable throttle limits, selectable user profiles, and much more using the Quick Programming Card (QPC).
The front and rear shock towers are machined from premium aircraft aluminum alloy, and each shock tower is strategically lightened for optimized performance without sacrificing durability.
The oversized, precision machined aluminum shock bodies are hard anodized for smooth operation and wear resistance. Threaded shock collars offer easy yet precise adjustment of pre-load and ride height, and strength and durability are added with the extra large 4mm diameter Titanium Nitride shock shafts.
Both the front and rear differentials and housings are sealed against the elements, protecting each diff from foreign matter that can affect performance and durability. The tight tolerance diff gears take better advantage of the viscous effect for superior traction and acceleration.
The 8IGHT-E is outfitted with Losi's XBT 1/8 Buggy Tires, the same tires used on the 8IGHT. These tires feature the proven, traditional Losi "X" pattern design for superior traction, excellent rough-track handling and a comfortable feel.
The steering system on the 8IGHT-E Race Roller is designed to prevent uncontrolled direction changes due to bump-steer. The adjustable Ackerman steering rack provides improved turn-in and precise control as well as additional tuning options to help you easily drive at speed on a broad range of conditions.
