Expect a bunch of project trucks to be built around this bad boy! Click for discussion and a link to more pics.
Team Losi’s Travis Amezcua TQ’d the RC Pro Series East Race this past weekend with the still-in-development Losi Eight. The win also went to the Eight, but not with Travis behind the wheel; Adam drake took that honor. Reliable sources not affiliated with Team Losi said the buggy was unbelievable at the Farm 2 in North Carolina, which will host the ROAR 1/8-scale Nationals in July. Will it be the Eight’s first Nats win?
Yannick Aigon, TQ driver at the most recent IFMAR 1/8 Off-Road World Championship, has joined RB Products in the R&D department. Yannick will also drive the XRAY XB8 in France to strengthen the XRAY French team. XRAY will work very hard on further improvement and development, and with world class top drivers like Aigon and other running XRAY, it will certainly help to speed up the evolution of the car.
