This is the Team Losi Racing 8IGHT-E 3.0 1/8 Scale 4WD Electric Competition Buggy Kit. The 8IGHT-E platform has drivers around the world on the top of the podium, and the 8IGHT-E 3.0 buggy is engineered to continue that winning tradition. Its lightweight, aluminum chassis has been specifically designed for electric power with a motor and battery layout that lowers the center of gravity. This makes it easier to drive fast, corner hard and lower lap times all of which makes life much harder for your competition.

In-Depth Features:

  • Aluminum Chassis Optimized for Electric Power: The lightweight, 4mm 7075-T6 Aluminum chassis has been hard anodized for maximum durability. Its layout has been specifically engineered for electric power with motor and battery placement that lowers the center of gravity and makes it easier to drive fast.
  • Updated Suspension Geometry: Revised front spindles and spindle carriers reduce dogbone plunge into the outdrive and deliver more consistent handling on all track surfaces. The spindle carriers have 15 degrees of caster for better bump handling and smoother steering response. Front and rear shock towers have simplified camber locations for quick and easy tuning.
  • Large-Bore 16mm Shocks with Tapered Springs: The large volume shocks are easier to tune and feature tapered springs that provide greater clearance while reducing the chance of spring cup ejection during extreme impacts. Machined pistons are included for greater precision and increased performance.
  • Adjustable Front and Rear Aluminum Pivots with Inserts: These aluminum pivots come with inserts that let you make adjustments in 1.2 degree increments to front kick, rear toe-in and anti-squat settings.
  • Front and Rear Center Dogbones: The use of front and rear center dog bones eliminate the friction of a CV coupler. The front center dog bone will significantly reduce the binding that would occur as a front center CV coupler wore out.
  • 5mm Turnbuckles: The added durability of 5mm turnbuckles is great for any track, particularly high speed European circuits.
  • Updated Body and Wing Design: The body and wing have been reshaped to deliver even more downforce when cornering fast and flying down the straights.
  • Two Sets of TLR Wheels: The kit includes two sets of wheels (one yellow, one white) that have been specially designed for the 8IGHT-E 3.0 buggy. Tires and inserts are sold separately.
  • Titanium Shock Shafts and Hinge Pins with Carbonitride Coating: This special coating substantially reduces shock shaft and hinge pin wear while adding a little extra smoothness to the suspension package at the same time.
  • Updated Droop Screw System: The large, button head droop screw has enough surface area to rest against the chassis without galling it.
  • Updated Mud Guards and Servo Mount: The mud guards have been updated to fit the symmetrical chassis design. The servo mount has also been firmed up for better steering.

  • 4mm, hard-anodized aluminum chassis designed for electric power
  • Hard-anodized aluminum motor mount
  • Performance battery mounting system with secure straps
  • Updated radio tray design
  • Motor wire stay for cleaner, safer installation

Scary Good! Easy to drive fast and very durable. You can't go wrong with this kit.

Building this buggy at the moment and let me tell you this is a top of the line kit. I'm a tool and die maker for a living and I know high quality materials when I see them. Even the chassie has been milled on a cnc machine which isn't cheap to do! Another important part of the 3.0e is the fact it has been designed as an electric kit. There is no cut out in the chassie for the spur gear starter and the battery is now mounted on the chassie for lower cg. The kit is more money than most others but remember, you get what you pay for...

Love it. got it the day it came and built it right away. such a easy build and wow what a great buggy. I heard its takes after the scte 2.0 which I can now see why they say that. I have yet to run it as it is my indoor buggy for this winter on Indoor tracks only, but my buddy brought his out to the race last week and TQ the heck out of it. he said he couldnt tell a change in any of the other losi buggys, going from 1.0 to 2.0 to the 30 nitro. that he couldnt really tell any diff in the way an feel they drive, but this 3.0E changed all that and is a whole diff, BETTER car. cant wait to get mine off the road out front and on some dirt

Had this buggy for a month now the best quality ever I mean bullet proof. This car is very durable, and with tekin engine and esc very fast, awesome handling when setup right. Just can't say enough how much I love this car. Raced about 6 races still going strong probably practice 2-4 times a week still haven't had anything go wrong. Everyone who drives this car says they love how it feels. Great product Losi probably be purchasing nitro 3.0 or maybe even another 3.0 E.
