Race-Proven Durability
Race-Proven Durability

In addition to its 4mm T-6 aluminum chassis plate, the 8IGHT Nitro buggy uses a Gen III radio tray that prolongs steering and throttle servo life with features like ball-bearing linkages and more accurate linkage alignment. It has been designed to resist wear and tear from chassis flex, too.

 

Brute Power
Brute Power

A powerful Dynamite .21 nitro engine gives you all the grunt you need to be a front runner, right out of the box. It is equipped with a convenient pull-start so you don't have to buy a starter box to get racing right away.

 

Metal-Gear Drivetrain and Sealed Differentials
Metal-Gear Drivetrain and Sealed Differentials

A metal-gear transmission and sealed differentials give the buggy all the durability it needs for long mains and rough conditions.

 

Center and Rear Dogbones
Center and Rear Dogbones

These eliminate the friction of a CV coupler and improve bump handling in the rear of the car.

 

Pre-Set Suspension Geometry
Pre-Set Suspension Geometry

The suspension geometry is pre-set from the factory to match that used by professional team drivers so you can hit the track with confidence. And because it uses fixed-length turnbuckles and steering arms, you know it will remain consistent race to race.
