There’s one word that describes the new 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.
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
The Losi Mini 8IGHT-DB 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 Losi Mini 8IGHT-DB 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
Losi Mini 8IGHT-DB’s realistic-looking tires provide a solid performance and stability on all surfaces.
1/10 Scale Tire/Wheel Combination
The 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.
