There's one word that describes the Losi Mini 8IGHT-DB perfectly: realistic. You'll love its scale looks, which include authentic desert buggy features and cage work with desert buggy body panels. You'll have a blast reaching speeds of 30+ mph on the street, in your backyard and everywhere in between. Everything about this buggy was designed to deliver a jaw-dropping experience, from the powerful 3800Kv motor to the all-terrain buggy tires. This is pure Mini 8IGHT adrenaline. Whatever you do, don't be fooled by its size. It's small but packs an extremely wicked punch.


In-Depth Features:

  • Realistic Scale Looks: The Mini 8IGHT-DB takes the highly successful Mini 8IGHT-T platform and gives it scale desert buggy looks. It uses the same chassis at the 8IGHT-T, but instead of a traditional body it has cage work with desert buggy body panels.
  • Dynamite 3800kV Brushless Power System: This buggy comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze 3800kV brushless motor and a waterproof 25A ESC. This potent combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (sold separately) and will allow you to hurtle across the landscape at speeds of up to 30+ mph.
  • 48-Pitch Spur and Pinion Gears: The spur and pinion gears make it easy for you to use any pinion on the market-you are not limited to .5 mod pitch gears.
  • Front and Rear Metal Gear Differentials: The metal gear differentials give you the confidence to take on anything in your path with higher Kv motor upgrades.
  • Waterproof Electronics, Including 3S ESC: The receiver, servo and ESC are all waterproof so you can run anytime, rain or shine. The ESC is capable of a 3S battery.
  • All-Terrain Buggy Tires: These realistic-looking tires provide a solid performance and stability on all surfaces.
  • 1/10 Scale Tire/Wheel Combination: The Mini 8IGHT-DB looks just as good as it performs. For option parts, you can use any front 1/10th 4WD wheel and tire combination that have a 12mm hex as a replacement option.
  • Fully Caged Chassis with Body Panels and Driver Cockpit: The fully caged chassis adds to the Mini 8IGHT's realistic looks and provides you with easy access to the chassis when you need it. You can also flip up the entire body and cage to access the battery, just like its 1/10 scale version, the Losi SCBE.
  • Spektrum STX2 Transmitter: The STX2 transmitter comes with a three-position throttle-limiting switch that makes the Mini 8IGHT-DB easy to drive, whether you' re a beginner or expert driver. Features like throttle/steering reversing, throttle/steering travel adjust and throttle limiting are all built in. The radio system includes the SRX200 2Ch waterproof receiver.

Losi Mini 8IGHT-DB 1/14 RTR 4WD Brushless Electric Buggy (White)
I had a mini 8 truggy for a long time and could not get it to last more than a pack or two without breaking something, usually the spur/pinion. The old mini-8T had some weird 0.5mod gear pitch instead of the more standard 48p and I had endless trouble with them. Now that they've switched it back to 48p (and possibly improved the composite) it has been running fine. I swapped to the DB and it is a big improvement. Ive run about 10 packs through my heavily modified (Mamba max pro and neumotor 1110/1Y with a 3S lipo) setup using the stock plastic spur gear and haven't had anything break yet. The rod ends are still too easy to pop off though so I recommend some rpm replacements. This thing is now the reliable little monster I've always wanted and the desert buggy body looks fantastic.

Already went through a Spur gear, why the gear box isn't well sealed is beyond me, great performance otherwise. If I have any more Spur gear issues I'll have horizon exchange a regular mini 8 to me because how aggravating, I bought 4 LiPos for this thing and haven't got to kill one of them yet.

This is by far one of the most durable fun cars I've ever purchased in my life. I put 2S lipos in and have ran at least 10 full charges through it before locking up the servo. This only happened because I went 30 ft in the air hitting a pole full speed. Perfect backyard track car, plan on getting the 1/8 version too.

Losi Mini 8IGHT-DB 1/14 RTR 4WD Brushless Electric Buggy (White)
I'm new to the RC world but I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. She drove it 3 times and it quit running. Not sure if it's the cheap controller or something in the car.
