Losi revolutionized 1/8-scale buggy racing with the 8IGHT, the
first genuinely new design in more than a decade. Now they’ve
done the same for ready-to-run drivers with the 8IGHT RTR. Starting
with the same innovative ultra-narrow chassis and drivetrain
layout, the 8IGHT RTR packs authoritative power and handling right
of the box.
Team Losi’s 427 engine and tuned exhaust come
pre-installed, along with Spektrum’s crystal-free DX2 radio
system for unmatched control. The centrally mounted motor, oversized
shocks, thick aluminum chassis, and numerous other ingenious
features yield both performance and durability. When it comes
to the combination
of features and race-inspired performance in a ready-to-run buggy,
no one comes close to the 8IGHT RTR from Team Losi.

The oversized, 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.
Designed for easy maintenance and
cleanup, the 8IGHT RTR features a one-piece removable radio tray.
Simply remove a few screws and take the whole radio tray out for
routine maintenance or cleaning.
The adjustable Ackerman steering
rack provides better turn-in and precise control as well as additional
tuning options to help you drive comfortably at speed on a broad
range of conditions.
Front and rear differential housings
are sealed against the elements, protecting each diff from foreign
matter. The tight tolerance diff gears take better advantage of the
viscous effect for superior traction and acceleration.
The captured hinge pin system eliminates
the need for retaining clips. The combination of the aluminum alloy
pin brace and the molded retainer cover keep precise alignment and
free movement for consistent handling and smooth suspension response.
