This is the Team Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 4WD Truggy Kit. Returning to its roots, Team Losi Racing is now offering the 8ight 2.0 vehicles in kit form for die hard racing enthusiasts, or those who simply prefer to build their vehicle. This kit includes the same components as the roller version, with the exception of tires. They do however, include two complete sets of wheels!

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit is built on an extended-length Tuned Flex Technology (TFT) 2.0 chassis (14mm longer) which offers added stability and handling across all track conditions. This increased stability gives the 8IGHT-T Kit the ability to carry more speed into and out of corners, and to glide across washboard sections with ease. Tuned Flex Technology also provides significant handling gains by responding precisely to changes in terrain without sacrificing balance and grip.

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit includes updated steering geometry which features a servo saver with increased consistency. Additional gains in steering precision were made by incorporating a pressed-steel bushing in the Ackerman brace, which reduces friction over the entire range of motion. With the increased horsepower demands of 1/8-scale truggy racing, Team Losi Racing re-engineered the dogbones and outdrives of the 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit to stand up to the abuse associated with serious off-road competition.

For balanced braking, Team Losi Racing designed 30mm front and 33mm rear heavy-duty brake discs that greatly improve brake feel and cooling. The heavy-duty design and construction ensures that you can accelerate further into corners before having to brake, allowing for faster lap times and quicker exits from the corner.

The alloy shock towers on the 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit have been strengthened and lightened for better on-track performance without sacrificing handling or strength. The suspension on the 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit features numerous shock mounting locations for several options in adjusting the suspension setup. The front carrier also features two camber link positions while the rear has four, allowing for even greater customization to varying track conditions. The updated suspension includes the use of 15mm longer front shocks and 20mm longer rear shocks, extending the amount of suspension travel for increased handling capabilities on even the roughest of tracks.

Utilizing results from worldwide competitions, the 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit includes a 50T center spur gear designed to provide the perfect gear ratio for truggy racing. Combined with the numerous advancements and updates to the vehicle overall, the result is an even more dominant performance on any track and in any condition.

A revised radio tray on the 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit optimizes the position of the servos, while increasing response time and reducing stress on the throttle servo. This design also allows for increased precision from the throttle servo while reducing weight. The sure-close fuel tank ensures automatic, positive closure and prevents air from entering the fuel system.

All suspension arms on the 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit have been extended a full 15mm for a wider, more stable base that maintains outstanding handling over any terrain. The extended width also allows for more stable entry into and exit from the corners, cutting valuable seconds off your lap times. Zero-Offset wheels were designed to keep the overall width within race guidelines while still offering incredible handling improvement. The 8IGHT-T 2.0 Kit also features an updated body design that increases air flow to the engine cooling head for improved engine performance.

Team Losi Racing 8IGHT-T 2.0 4WD Competition Nitro Truggy Kit
I've been running this kit for almost a year now and I've fallen in love with it! I use to be a die hard mugen junkie but that has been changed! I have to say this is the best truggy on the market at the moment. In a year of racing 2-3 times a month ive only broken 2 front a arms and a shock! Mine is powered by a OS .21 speed gen 1 with Hitech servos and an m11 at master control. At 600 it's almost a steal I feel it's worth so much more!
