Features

Heavy -Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

Heavy -Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

With the increased demands of 1/8-scale buggy racing, Team Losi Racing reengineered the Dogbones and Outdrives of the 8IGHT-E 2.0 Race Roller to stand up to the abuse. These heavy-duty components have been designed to withstand the abuse associated with serious off-road competition.


Lightened Shock Towers

Lightened Shock Towers

The alloy front and rear shock towers on the 8IGHT-E 2.0 Race Roller have been 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 strength.


Hard-Anodized Aluminum Motor Mount

Hard-Anodized Aluminum Motor Mount

Built to stand up to the intense torque offered by the Xcelorin brushless motor, the motor mount in the 8IGHT-E 2.0 Race Roller is constructed from hard-anodized aluminum. This heavy-duty, lightweight design guarantees proper gear and pinion alignment every time the motor is adjusted or reinstalled.


Tuned Flex Technology (TFT) Chassis

Tuned Flex Technology (TFT) Chassis

Extended 2mm from the original, the 8IGHT-E 2.0 Race Roller chassis design offers added stability and handling, the ability to carry more speed into and out of corners, and glide across washboard sections. Tuned Flex Technology provides significant handling gains by responding precisely to changes in terrain without sacrificing balance and grip.


Updated Suspension Geometry

Updated Suspension Geometry

The suspension on the 8IGHT-E 2.0 Race Roller 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.


Precision Steering Geometry and Servo Saver

Precision Steering Geometry and Servo Saver

The engineers at Team Losi Racing have managed to increase the consistency of the servo saver's operation by further tweaking the steering geometry. Additional gains in steering precision were made by incorporating a new, pressed-steel bushing in the Ackerman brace for more freedom of motion.


Heavy-Duty Battery Tray with Secure Straps

Heavy -Duty Battery Tray with Secure Straps

The battery tray on the 8IGHT-E 2.0 Race Roller has been designed to place battery packs in an optimal position for proper balance and center of gravity. The tray accommodates 3S, 4S and 5S LiPo battery packs, all held securely in place with hook and loop straps that help protect your investment.


Included Tuning Parts

Included Tuning Parts

Additional tuning parts that would otherwise be expensive options are included in the package. A complete selection of front and rear sway bars, as well as optional spring sets and an alternative Ackerman steering rack give you a range of tuning tools never seen in a competition package before. A comprehensive setup sheet and tuning guide help you use these and all tuning parts for the best results.


XCELORIN

Xcelorin Brushless Motor and Electronic Speed Control

Xcelorin Brushless Motor and Electronic Speed Control

Losi's Xcelorin electronics offer cutting edge performance for intense electric RC excitement, as well as nearly maintenance-free operation. By installing an Xcelorin 2100Kv brushless motor and electronic speed control combo right at the factory, Team Losi Racing can offer power and speed that is specifically tuned to the 8IGHT-E 2.0's innovative design. The instantaneous throttle response and acceleration are unmatched by nitro powerplants, and the speed control is capable of handling 3, 4 and 5-cell LiPo packs.


Quick Programming Card

Quick Programming Card

The installed Xcelorin speed control can also be further customized with the Quick Programming Card, which allows you to quickly and easily adjust key settings for the speed control without the need of a laptop or computer whether trackside or just out having fun.

SMARTDIFF


SmartDiff - The Ultimate Drop-In Hop Up

Losi engineers have designed a patent pending differential that knows exactly how to respond to track conditions and throttle input, offering the ultimate combination of precise steering and immediate acceleration when entering and exiting corners and turns.

  • Off Throttle Action When entering a corner off the throttle, the SmartDiff automatically opens, allowing the gears to rotate freely for improved off-power steering precision.
  • Off Throttle Action When power is applied, the SmartDiff's adjustable ramp plates lock on to the gear shafts for increased acceleration out of corners.
