Features

New Rear Hub Design

New Rear Hub Design

The 8IGHT 2.0 features a new rear hub design that incorporates a new inner camber link, a revised shock tower with simplified camber locations and the durability of 3.5mm outer rear hinge pins.


New Chassis with Tuned Flex Technology (TFT)

New Chassis with Tuned Flex Technology (TFT)

The 8IGHT 2.0 chassis has been extended an additional 2mm, offering added stability and handling across all track conditions. This offers the 8IGHT 2.0 the ability to carry more speed into and out of corners, and to glide across washboard sections with ease. Tuned Flex Technology also provides significant handling gains by responding precisely to changes in terrain without sacrificing balance and grip. Team Losi Racing has also added laser etched lines to ensure perfect motor alignment


Revised Radio Tray Design

Revised Radio Tray Design

The radio tray on the 8IGHT 2.0 has been revised and reengineered to optimize the position of the servos, increasing response and reducing stress on the throttle servo at the same time. This design allows for increased precision from the throttle servo without added weight.


Precision Steering Geometry and Servo Saver

Precision Steering Geometry and Servo Saver

Improving on the 8IGHTs original steering design was a difficult task, but the engineers at Team Losi Racing have managed to increase the consistency of the servo savers operation by further tweaking the steering geometry. Additional gains in steering precision were made by incorporating a new, pressed-steel bushing in the Ackermann brace for reducing friction over the entire range of motion.


Sure-Close Fuel Tank

Sure-Close Fuel Tank

Every second counts on race day, and fast fuel fills are crucial to getting back in the race. With a new, sure-close fuel tank design, the tank lid is designed for automatic, positive closure each time, preventing air from getting in the fuel system and affecting performance.


Lightened Shock Towers

Lightened Shock Towers

The high-quality 7075 aluminum shock towers on the 8IGHT 2.0 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 improved on-track performance without sacrificing handling or strength.


Heavy Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

Heavy Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

With the increased horsepower demands of 1/8-scale buggy racing, Team Losi used improved steel materials on the dogbones and outdrives of the 8IGHT 2.0 to stand up to the abuse. These heavy-duty components have been designed to withstand the punishment associated with serious off-road competition.


Updated Suspension Geometry

Updated Suspension Geometry

The suspension on the 8IGHT 2.0 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.


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.
