Adam Drake And Dakotah Phend Limited Edition Losi Mini 8IGHT

Jul 25, 2013 No Comments by

Losi is no stranger to the world of off-road minis – it was their 1/18-scale replica of the XXX-T called the “Mini-T” that can be credited with the wave of shrunken versions of larger cars and trucks that swept the industry. A couple of years ago Losi released the Mini 8IGHT, a 1/14-scale version of their venerable buggy platform, as a complete RTR with full-time 4WD and long travel suspension (for its size) that was equally capable of tackling backyard obstacles and even the local off-road track.

Now they’ve released two-limited edition Mini 8IGHT RTR buggies commemorating the recent success of Adam Drake and Dakotah Phend at the 2013 ROAR Fuel Off-Road Nationals. Both versions include a Dynamite 4500Kv brushless motor and waterproof ESC, plus a Spektrum DX2L radio and 7.2v 1100mAh NiMH battery pack. But the coolest part are the replica bodies using Phend’s and Drake’s well known paint schemes. Here is the full press release from Losi.


Based upon the ROAR-Championship-winning 8IGHT™ buggy, this brushless-powered prodigy is the ultimate mini buggy. Its 1/14-scale size allows it to handle tougher terrain while mastering the outrageous power and speed from the brushless system. Better still, the Mini 8IGHT comes with everything you need to get started, including transmitter, rechargeable NiMH battery pack and charger. Experience the thrill of driving a Mini 8IGHT today.
