The 1/8-scale 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR Nitro Truggy is designed with the entry-level driver in mind, and comes completely assembled and ready-to-run with the wheels, tires, engine, and electronics already installed on the chassis.

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR includes a Losi 454 engine which provides the optimal amount of power for dominating a race or just bashing in the backyard. This potent .28-sized performance engine, specifically built for 1/8-scale off-road vehicles, offers great styling and a color anodized cooling head. A tuned pipe is also included for outstanding performance from the first time the engine is fired up.

Spektrum’s DX3S 3-Channel sport radio system with 2.4 GHz DSM technology lets 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR drivers and racers experience the next level in precise control, while offering the added benefit of integrated telemetry. The integrated telemetry provides real-time information such as head temperature, speed in MPH and voltage information on the transmitter’s large LCD display. Plus, the included high-capacity 1400mAh NiMH receiver battery ensures multiple runs between charges and plenty of power for the on-board electronic components.

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR also offers performance driven features such as an extended-length chassis, race-length shocks, lengthened suspension arms and zero-offset wheels for increased stability and outstanding handling over any terrain. Heavy-duty silicone fluid-filled differential cases in the front, center and rear of the 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR help to increase driveline durability for RTR bashing and entry-level racing. The 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR also features large, race inspired heavy-duty brake discs which are proven to reliably slow down the truggy when needed, even after accelerating to full speed.

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR’s 4mm thick chassis, shock towers, wheel hexes and wheel nuts have all been anodized red for a stylish custom look. The race-inspired body comes pre-painted and decorated, and offers a functional design that increases air flow to the engine cooling head for improved overall engine performance.

The 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR also INCLUDES a Starter Box for simple, reliable starting. Anodized red to match the 8IGHT-T 2.0 RTR’s chassis, the starter box not only looks good but is designed with a powerful 775-sized motor to crank over the 454 engine time after time with minimal effort.

Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 1/8 4WD RTR Truggy (w/DX3S Radio, Telemetry Installed & Starter
Very good car! I bought new bigger servo's to put in, but really haven't had any problems yet, so figured I'd wait till there was one. Handling is awesome! Been in a few pile ups and haven't broken anything yet. I put a couple Nicad 4500's in the starter box, that I typically use for my Slash, and so far it is bullet proof with no problems starting the vehicle. Motor sounds a little rough, but no signs of failure, just noisy. No shock problems as stated by others either. My telemetry temperature is spot on and has been since I started it for the first time. I measure with my laser pointer vs. where it ties into the reader wire contact on the motor and they are always 1-3 degrees within eachother. Long story short, nothing but smiles from this Losi fan! I'd recomend this car to anyone. The handling is almost like cheating! GREAT JOB LOSI!!!!!!

Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 1/8 4WD RTR Truggy (w/DX3S Radio, Telemetry Installed & Starter
Let me start by saying it is a great truggy and I am a big Losi fan! The starter box totally sucks... it came broken, the solder was off on one of the motor leads. Next, it barely works for the 2.0 and the thing burned up after only a few starts (thank god for my OFNA box). There were a handful of things broken out of the box, shock ends, brake parts. As always Amain took care of it ASAP! If you buy this truggy plan on buying servos, 10 laps steering, 15 laps throttle servo both toast. $170 worth of HItec servos later this thing is awesome, the engine has plenty of power, handles like a dream, very forgiving for us crappy drivers out there. Definitely a great truggy, if I did it again I would probably buy the Roller version.

For what you get for your money it is a good deal. Engine broke in nice and has tons of power. I am going to put turbo button and a Losi RE-11 pipe on this weekend and run some 30% nitro and she how she runs. Radio is great. I have only had two problems. In the first five minutes the shock ends both came off of the rear shocks, but that was an easy fix. The steering servo went out on my second day out with the Truggy. It was to weak anyway so I changed it over to Hitec HS-5645MG and it has been tearing up Thunder Alley almost every sunday. Overall I am very happy with Losi where else can you receive $1,300.00 dollars of stuff for a little over $700.00 bucks.

Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 1/8 4WD RTR Truggy (w/DX3S Radio, Telemetry Installed & Starter
I bought mind second hand. .... and have NEVER had a problem with it. And I hadn't driven nitro in 12+yrs!!! My motor is strong and holds a tune with no problems. But I baby my motors so that could be it. Upgrades are cheap and easy to come by.

The servos do leave something to be desired tho but I had more of a problem with reaction time and vagueness of postion with the throttle servo. Replaced with Savox 1257tg.
Replaced the steering with a Jr propo unit. Great set up.

Anyways is a great truggy to get started withand it really upgrades when you're ready. Now at this price, it's even better.

Best "out of the box"/entry level truggy to start in racing, with everything you need, and very tought, and bullet proof. Been racing for a year now, and broke nothing. Engine little hard to brake in, and thirsty,but with heat method it was easy. Just chuck out servo's and replace with Savox, and do the head conversion with RE-11 pipe. Also replace shock caps with alum. ones.The truggy is super fast, and screams down the straight.Never had any other problems as mentioned. I now also have the race roller, and I don't regret starting with the RTR.Great product LOSI.

Yo compre mi losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 1/8 4WD Truggy luego de esperar hacerlo por dos años. Estoy realmente feliz . el motor fue realmente facil prenderlo el control remoto responde de maravilla. valio la pena la espera...
Me gustaria que las instrucciones del carro y el control remoto las imprimieran en español seria mucho mejor para la cantidad de latinos que nos gustan los carros a control remoto...

Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 1/8 4WD RTR Truggy (w/DX3S Radio, Telemetry Installed & Starter
This car was sort of a half arsed idea. The car itself structural is ok quality (no where near that or mugen or xray) but does handle very well. The servos for the car a weak, slow and just usless would be lucky to make it in a 7 minute heat. The radio though did look good but I had range issues with the spektrum on reaching around 200 feet which is useless and the telemetry was inaccurate. The engine was easy enough to start but couldnt hold its tune until it was completely sealed up. The starter box though had enough grunt to start the engine quickly but trying to start other race engines (werks b5 & OS v-spec W.E.) it struggled.

Once I changed servos to hitecs (7940+7950), sealed the engine and swapped the radio over to an m11x I could finally give the car a proper run.

Nearly 1 and a half hours of running the difference between the race roller and the rtr was obvious. The shocks had plastics caps which cracked very quickly leaking oil everywhere. The shock towers are thick but the quality of the metal is lower and it doesnt take much for them to bend. The car how every once the caps were upgraded to alloy, drove very well and went around the track very quickly and depspite being a tad heavy it felt very light and nimble.

I was not really happy with this car as their are a lot of bad things like poor servos, weak shock towers, plastic shock caps, poor radio range with failing telemetry and a thirsty engine. Once you fix all these problems you may as well have bought the race roller or a different car all together.

Awesome radio, great looking body, electronics are decent, engine was horrible!!! And to much plastic for something over $700...needs a few hop-ups in certain areas.. ...Oh yea, the shocks will probably come broken when you get it. it's common. They were stamped and not screwed in properly..Other than that, not a bad deal. I'm a losi fan ..So I will leave it at... I perfer my losi 2.0 buggy much better...

This is by far the best Truggy in the market right now! I like this better than the race roller, it's way more durable. Also it handles like a dream. Got it tuesday broke it in and ran a few laps. Today i installed the smart diff's and all i can say is WOW! This Truggy is awesome. I cant wait to put in some carbon fiber parts to make it lighter. I say the Best RTR for 2009!

Losi 8IGHT-T 2.0 1/8 4WD RTR Truggy (w/DX3S Radio, Telemetry Installed & Starter
Out of the box the motor was super hard to start. I had to machine out the chassis and buy a different starter box. The motor was so hard to turn over even with the plug loosened that I kept snapping belts. Once I had about a half gallon through it though the motor got better, but now had real issues holding a tune.

However, I give 4 stars (and would 5 if it werent for those motor issues) because since converting to an electric I absolutely love it. Handles like a dream. Feels well balanced and is super easy to drive. There are some components that could be upgraded, but all in all I'd buy again.
