Losi announces an updated version of the 8IGHT-E RTR RC buggy! In the past the ready to run version of the 8IGHT usually came equipped with cheaper alternatives to the high end aluminum parts of its race buggy sibling. This updated version of the 8IGHT-E RTR takes that to a new level. Much like the previously announced nitro version, this buggy’s aluminum big bore shocks have been replaced with cheaper plastic units and the adjustable steel turnbuckles were swapped out for non-adjustable plastic parts. Of course, the result is a cheaper 1/8 scale buggy. The previous 8IGHT-E RTR was priced around $660. This new model is $120 cheaper at just $540. Other features include a Dynamite 130a 4S ESC, 2500Kv brushless motor, DX2E radio system and a Spektrum 9KG waterproof metal gear steering servo. Check out the pics of the new Losi 8IGHT-E RTR and let us know what you think!
