Features

Xcelorin Brushless Power System

Xcelorin Brushless Power System

The 1/8-scale Xcelorin 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).


Ultra Narrow Drivetrain Layout

Ultra Narrow Drivetrain Layout

The revolutionary ultra narrow drivetrain layout positions the brushless motor in the center of the chassis for quicker response, sharper handling, and a plush ride.


Oversized Shocks and Machined Premium Shock Towers

Oversized Shocks and Machined Premium Shock Towers

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. 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.


Sealed Differentials & Housings

Sealed Differentials & Housings

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.


Pre-glued XBT Tires and Dish Racing Wheels

Pre-glued XBT Tires and Dish Racing Wheels

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.


Zero Bump-Steer Design with Adjustable Ackerman Steering Rack

Zero Bump-Steer Design with Adjustable Ackerman Steering Rack

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.


XCELORIN

Xcelorin: Performance Brushless Systems

The 1/8-scale Xcelorin Sensorless Motors and Electronic Speed Control will convert any 8IGHT-based race or RTR vehicle into an electric vehicle. Converting your existing 8IGHT vehicle to electric power is easy with the following 8IGHT Electric Conversion Products.

1/8 Sensorless Electronic Speed Control

1/8 Sensorless Electronic Speed Control

The fully programmable, high-output ESC can handle a 3-5-cell LiPo battery pack, and offers precise throttle and braking control. Additionally, the ESC offers tons of programming options, including adjustable throttle limits, selectable user profiles, and much more using the Quick Programming Card.


Quick Programming Card

Quick Programming Card

The Quick Programming Card includes three pre-programmed profiles for easy adjustments to the ESC without the need for a computer. The included, simple-to-use software interface allows for unlimited profile settings and tuning options.


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.
