TLR 8IGHT-T E 3.0 Electric Truggy

Published on July 9, 2015 by in RC Offroad

TLR 8IGHT-T E 3.0 Electric TruggyAfter releasing their successful nitro truggy, the TLR 8IGHT-T 3.0, Team Losi Racing set out to develop its electric sibling to be every bit as dominant. Instead of simply converting the nitro version to electric, they went over the entire thing and came up with an all new chassis layout that has been milled and balanced for electric power, as well as a suspension setup designed specifically for electric. Other features include multiple ESC and battery mounting locations, long bore 16mm shocks with tapered springs, adjustable front and rear suspension pivots, lightweight outdrives, aluminum rear bearing inserts and an electric specific body.

Chassis
Rather than adapt the existing 8IGHT-T 3.0 nitro chassis, the Team engineered an all-new chassis that has been widened and balanced specifically for electric power. It is milled from lightweight, 4mm 7075-T6 aluminum and has been hard anodized for maximum durability. The TLR 8IGHT-T E 3.0 chassis gives racers multiple ESC and battery mounting locations. This makes it possible to easily relocate components when tuning the vehicle’s balance for varying track conditions. Specific suspension components such as springs, shock pistons and sway bars have also been updated to better complement electric power systems.

Large-Bore 16mm Shocks and Tapered Springs
The TLR 8IGHT-T E 3.0’s large volume shocks are easier to tune and remain more consistent during temperature change. They feature tapered springs that provide greater clearance while reducing the chance of spring cup ejection during extreme impacts. Machined pistons are included for greater precision and increased performance.

CNC Shock Towers
The front and rear shock towers are machined from 4mm 7075-T6 aluminum and hard anodized for maximum durability.

Adjustable Pivots
The TLR 8IGHT-T E 3.0 kit includes hard anodized adjustable front pivots and low roll center rear pivots with adjustable bushings.

Optional Parts Included
Many of the parts included with this kit are popular upgrades that will give you everything you need to build a Team spec truggy right out of the box. This includes lightweight outdrives, adjustable hinge pin braces, an aluminum servo saver top, aluminum rear bearing inserts and more.

Electric Version Body and Adjustable Rear Wing
The body shares many of the same lines with the nitro version body but extends the rear stabilization fin so that it meets the rear of the cab. The adjustable rear wing includes a .250 and .500 inch spacer that lets you move the wing back for extra stability on high-speed tracks.
