Team Losi Racing 1/8 8IGHT-XE Elite Electric Buggy Kit
This Kit is an ABSOLUTE BEAST of a kit. It went together beautifully. I went with a Tekin RX8 Gen3 ESC and Tekin T8 Gen3 1900kv Motor. It HAULS around our local track (Gulfcoast RC in Porter, Texas). You won't be disappointed with this kit!

So I did pick this up at my local hobby shop and this kit went together so well. I did have a few questions while building and Ryan Dunford was more then happy to help me out. Now the things that I wound up doing was getting the aluminum front carrier the plastic ones where just slightly out of spec could have just sanded down the inside but with it being such a new kit I option for the carriers 17.5 if anyone is interested. The kit looks amazing and everything else was perfect. I would not hesitate on this the losi xe elite seems like its going to be very aggressive.

Best competition buggy out of the box on the market. Tons of steering and with a few mods, great rear grip. Parts finish and quality is top notch. Great selection of option parts included in this! #DriveTLR

Awesome kit. Only thing I dont like is the clamping motor mount doesnt offer nearly the range of pinion gear sizes that the typical sliding motor mount does. Without changing the spur gear you are limited to just 3 sizes of pinions. No speed runs with this car, but for track use/racing its awesome.

Great kit! Started building when it came in. Package came promptly and not damaged in anyway. Everything was complete when I opened it. I would try looking around your local hobby shop first before buying on-line as I paid 30 dollars more for it than my local shop.

Team Losi Racing 1/8 8IGHT-XE Elite Electric Buggy Kit
This Buggy is Awesome! I've Had 2 other E Buggies and this TLR 8ight is way better right out of the box. It went together well no problems with the build. The Mugen was good, and I couldn't keep the Associated Buggy together, it broke every time I put it on the track. The Losi 8ight handles great, plenty of steering and jumps great. Glad I bought it.

The Team Losi 8ight XE Elite Kit was a Pleasure to Build. All parts are very High Quality and the Instructions were spot on. I do advise also watching Team Losi 8ight X Elite Build Videos on Facebook and Youtube. After I built the kit it was time to hit the track. The XE Elite is fast straight out of the Box and has plenty of Steering. This Car is a AWesome. Buy a Team Losi Today.
