Features

Extended Chassis with Tuned Flex Technology (TFT)		2.0

Extended Chassis with Tuned Flex Technology (TFT) 2.0

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 chassis has been extended an additional 14mm, offering added stability and handling across all track conditions. This increased stability gives the 8IGHT-T 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


Precision Steering Geometry and Servo Saver

Precision Steering Geometry and Servo Saver

Improving on the 8IGHT-T's 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 pressed-steel bushing in the Ackermann brace for more freedom in the range of motion.


Extended-Length Front and Rear Arms

Extended-Length Front and Rear Arms

All suspension arms on the 8IGHT-T 2.0 have been extended a full 15mm for a wider, more stable base that maintains outstanding handling over any terrain. The extended width also allows for more stable entry into and exit from the corners, cutting valuable seconds off your lap times. Zero-Offset wheels were designed to keep the overall width within race guidelines while still offering incredible handling improvement.


Updated Suspension Geometry and Longer 
		Rear Shocks

Updated Suspension Geometry and Longer Rear Shocks

The suspension on the 8IGHT-T 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. The updated suspension includes the use of 20mm longer rear shocks, extending the amount of suspension travel for increased handling capabilities on even the roughest of tracks.


Heavy-Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

Heavy-Duty Dogbones and Outdrives

With the increased horsepower demands of 1/8-scale truggy racing, Team Losi Racing reengineered the dogbones and outdrives of the 8IGHT-T 2.0 to stand up to the abuse. These heavy-duty components have been designed to withstand the power and abuse associated with serious off-road competition.


Heavy-Duty Front and Rear 
		Brake Disks

Heavy-Duty Front and Rear Brake Disks

For balanced braking, Team Losi Racing designed 30mm front and 33mm rear heavy-duty brake discs that greatly improve brake feel and cooling. The heavy-duty design and construction ensures that you can accelerate further into corners before having to brake, allowing for faster lap times and quicker exits from the corner.


Lightened Shock Towers

Lightened Shock Towers

The alloy shock towers on the 8IGHT-T 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 better on- track performance without sacrificing handling or strength.


Sure-Close Fuel Tank Closure

Sure-Close™ Fuel Tank Closure

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 or affecting performance.


50T Center Spur Gear

50T Center Spur Gear

Utilizing results from worldwide competitions, the 8IGHT-T 2.0 includes a 50T center spur gear designed to provide the perfect gear ratio for truggy racing. Combined with the numerous advancements and updates to the vehicle overall, the result is an even more dominant performance on any track and in any conditions.


Revised Radio Tray Design

Revised Radio Tray Design

The radio tray on the 8IGHT-T 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.


Body

Body

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 features an updated body design that increases air flow to the engine cooling head for improved engine performance.


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.
