Losi 1/8 8IGHT-XTE 4WD Sensored Brushless Racing Truggy RTR Overview

The pinnacle of outdoor RC car competition is 1/8 scale off-road racing. The tracks often stretch over 20,000 square feet, challenging each driver’s abilities with numerous turns, washboard sections, and off-camber corners. Multiple elevation changes send the cars leaping more than 30 feet as they sprint for a place on the podium.

If you’re eager to experience 1/8 scale off-road racing thrills for yourself, you’ll need a vehicle that’s adaptable to track conditions and to your own driving style. It should have a combination of race-proven features that will give you a head start toward the win — the right shock package, the best tire compound and tread, and differentials tuned to put maximum power to the ground. It should be the 1/8 scale Losi 8IGHT-XTE 4WD Racing Truggy.

With generous track width and massive, 5.5 inch tires, 1/8 scale truggies can easily speed over rough terrain without slowing to avoid mishaps. They’re incredibly fast and they’re tough enough to survive long racing mains on the world’s largest outdoor tracks.

The Losi 8IGHT-XTE 4WD Racing Truggy fits that description to a “T”. Based on the back-to-back ROAR National Champion TLR 8IGHT-X platform, it’s loaded with engineering that’s proven to win races. Standard features include a race-legal brushless power system and chassis specs with a full metal driveline and competition-caliber Spektrum S665 metal gear steering servo. If that’s not enough to get your opponents’ attention, the truggy’s Pro-Line Racing OE-Spec Axis 8IGHT-XTE body, Blockade tires, and Velocity wheels are the exact same race-proven designs used to compete around the world.

The Losi 8IGHT-XTE delivers a winning value, too. To start racing with a 1/8 scale truggy that’s this well-equipped, you’d normally have to buy a kit, assembly tools, and completion parts — spending as much as $1600 total or more — and then also invest the time needed to put it all together. You can race the 8IGHT-XTE as soon as you finish its paint-to-complete, cab-forward body in your favorite colors and install your choice of charged 4S LiPo battery. Keep a second charged battery on hand and you can be in and out of the pits in an instant, enjoying performance that’s as aggressive as a nitro truggy but with electric power’s simplicity.

World-class TLR option parts are directly compatible with the 8IGHT-XTE. As your skills grow, you can upgrade your truggy into an indomitable racing machine. If you’re a fan of real auto racing, joining 1/8 scale RC racing with the 8IGHT-XTE will teach you about suspension dynamics and other subjects that make a difference in full-scale competition.

The RC racing hobby is ultimately about more than winning. It’s about being part of a team, going to events, trading set-ups, and cheering each other on from the pits. To get there, start here — with the Losi 8IGHT-XTE 4WD. The fully assembled, ready-to-run 1/8 scale racing truggy comes with a Spektrum DX3 radio and requires only a 4S LiPo battery and compatible charger.
