8ight 3.0

TLR04000 1/8 Nitro 4WD 8IGHT 3.0 Buggy Kit

There’s no harsher environment for an R/C race-car than in 1:8 Nitro Rallycross. Hour-long mains, numerous bump-ups and some of the toughest, bumpiest and unforgiving tracks take their toll on inferior equipment. Above almost everything, reliability, durability and consistency are traits that Rallycross Racers relate with and to. There’s never been a greater exponent of the adage “To finish first, first you have to finish” and that’s why the Team Losi Racing 8ight platform has been one of the most universally acclaimed and revered 1:8 off-road cars since its inception some seven years ago.

Through excellence in design and R/C race-car understanding, the original 8ight became an instant hit when it was first announced. It became the new benchmark for the modern breed of 1:8 Nitro Rallycross cars. The ante was upped and the 8ight changed the previous status quo. Refinements along the way led to the 2.0 and the 2.0 EU platforms as the Team Losi Racing engineers continued to improve the 8ight as an overall racing platform. The competition edged closer but each time, the Team Losi Racing engineers and racing drivers took the 8ight to improved and new levels of performance.

Now that latest incarnation of the platform is here. The Team Losi Racing 8ight 3.0 has been honed and tuned to provide new found levels of drivability, consistency and performance with only one thing in mind- to make you faster as a driver. The Team Losi Racing team of engineers, designers and racers have looked critically at the 2.0 platform and tuned it in areas to make it more forgiving to drive, more consistent through the bumps, more tractable on acceleration and overall more stable without having to sacrifice any of the legendary reliability, robustness or that all important factor, Speed.

To have a consistent package throughout the duration of an intense A-main, when fractions all add up to make the difference, you need a car that can deliver without fuss and without trouble, leaving you to concentrate on what you need to do as a driver and just drive it. And don’t worry, you can drive the 8ight 3.0 to within an inch of it’s life, thanks to features like the 5mm turnbuckles or the hard-as-nails TiCN coated shock and suspension shafts. Revised, larger diameter shocks adorn each corner of the 8ight 3.0 and come complete with machined pistons, guides and bushings for the ultimate in consistency in performance and accuracy of build. Suspension geometry changes may appear subtle at first glance but they improve the 8ight 3.0’s stability when powering through rough sections of the track or when having to coast, off-throttle to pick the best line through the inevitable carnage that often ensues come finals time.
