Not resting on the success of the “Borrego” line in 1/10 scale form, DE Racing decided to get back to our 1/8 scale roots and create the “Borrego 8”. Like their smaller siblings, these wheels bring a touch of scale realism and style adopted from the pro buggy class of short course racing, and incorporate a simulated bead lock ring and foam mud plug to their design.
Though appearance was important, our foremost effort was in creating a wheel that would truly perform at the top of today’s competitive racing world. The first focus was on the wheels level of rigidity. Rigidity in not only the face of the wheel, but in its inner glue beads hoop strength as well. We believe as many others that a rigid wheel helps to eliminate the undampened spring effect of a soft flexible wheel and allows for a more consistent and confident handling car on fast and bumpy track surfaces. Second we knew the wheel had to be tough enough to endure the worst a track or driver could throw at them. Both of these goals were more than met with a wheel that is more rigid than even two piece wheels yet as light weight as most one piece wheels.
Another unique feature of the Borrego 8 is the high level of clearance on the inside support ribs. This clearance allows Losi 8ight drivers the ability to modify their car for larger amounts of steering travel without having to modify the wheels.
