Losi has this 1/8-scale buggy thing down pat. They’ve managed to TQ and win just about every major race out there with the 8IGHT-platform, but what about those out there on a tighter budget? Losi is here to answer the call yet again with the 810. Influenced by the 8IGHT buggy and TEN-T truggy, the 810 provides exceptional performance at a reduced price.
We had the chance to visit the Losi offices and spend some time with Ryan Dunford, lead developer of the 810. Ryan has been the force behind bringing the 810 to life and provides an inside look at the details that went into designing this new platform. We picked Ryan’s brain to see what brought the 810 into being, some basic tuning and setup tips and more.

• Oversized 12mm anodized, threaded shocks
• Digital servo for precise, powerful steering control
• Large capacity 82cc fuel tank for longer run times
• Losi 3.4cc performance engine with slide valve carburetor
• Sway bars included for better control and handling
• Spektrum SR300 receiver with 2.4GHz DSM technology
