New from Losi:

Losi’s 1/8-scale 8IGHT 2.0 Ready-to-Run Nitro Buggy makes it easier than ever for nearly anyone to experience the excitement of driving a 1/8-scale buggy or get into off-road 1/8-scale competitive racing. Designed with the entry-level racer in mind, the 8IGHT 2.0 RTR is completely assembled and ready-to-run with the chassis, wheels, tires and electronics already installed.

The installed Losi 350 engine provides an optimum amount of power for the 8IGHT 2.0 RTR buggy, whether dominating a race or just bashing in the backyard. This potent .21-sized performance engine is specifically built for 1/8-scale off-road buggies and legal for sanctioned racing worldwide. A tuned pipe is also included for outstanding performance from the first time the engine is fired up.

The included Spektrum DX3S 3-Channel sport radio system with 2.4GHz DSM technology lets 8IGHT 2.0 RTR drivers and racers experience the next level in precise control, while offering the added benefit of integrated telemetry. The addition of integrated telemetry gives any user real time information such as head temperature, speed in mph/rpm and voltage information. Plus, Spektrum’s exclusive 2.4GHz DSM technology provides an interference-free signal so you can run your 8IGHT 2.0 RTR anywhere without worry.

The 8IGHT 2.0 RTR features an extended-length chassis for unmatched performance and stability, which will be appreciated by novice and experienced users alike. Heavy-duty silicone filled differential cases in the front, rear and center of the vehicle help to increase the driveline durability. A Sure-Close fuel tank ensures positive, automatic closure after every fill-up, and the pull-handle tank lid makes fill-ups on the go even faster. The 8IGHT 2.0 RTR also features large, race inspired heavy-duty brake disks, which will consistently slow down the buggy when needed, even after accelerating to full speed.

In addition to its long list of performance-driven features, the 8IGHT 2.0 RTR also offers bashers and racers great looks. The 4mm thick chassis, shock towers, wheel hexes and wheel nuts have been anodized blue for a stylish, custom look. The pre-painted and fully decorated body offers a race-inspired scheme designed to match the blue anodized chassis.

The 8IGHT 2.0 RTR includes a Starter Box for simple starting time after time. Anodized blue to match the chassis of the 8IGHT 2.0 RTR, the starter box not only looks good but is designed with a powerful 775-sized motor to crank over the 350 Engine time after time with minimal effort.
