8IGHT-E RTR, AVC: 1/8 Electric 4WD Buggy

At a Glance

When it comes to RC buggies, the Losi® 8IGHT™ platform reigns supreme. Ever since this buggy was let loose it has distinguished itself from the pack by consistently taking the podium. With its low center of gravity, improved chassis design and 4WD capabilities, the 8IGHT buggy gradually left the constraints of the racetrack and held its own among backyard bashers thanks to its durable build and impressive handling. Now, with the 8IGHT-E™ RTR Brushless, you can experience the same heritage and competition leveling characteristics that made this buggy a champion. This version of the 8IGHT-E buggy combines the same 2014 ROAR national championship design characteristics with AVC™ (Active Vehicle Control™) technology from Spektrum&trade. Together the 8IGHT-E RTR and AVC™ technology deliver a rock solid driving experience with insane speed and precision all without the need for you to solder, build or paint. Whether you want to establish your dominance on the track or just bash harder, the 8IGHT-E™ RTR buggy will keep you driving at full potential.
