DESCRIPTION
 
To be the best, you have to drive the best and the Team Losi Racing® 8IGHT™ platform is second to none. With multiple ROAR national titles and major international wins, the 8IGHT represents a championship-winning heritage. The original 8IGHT took 1/8th-scale racing by storm and now the future of racing is hitting the track - the 8IGHT-X™ 1/8 Nitro Buggy. This is a completely redefined racing platform crafted from the ground up. Designed to be the best of all possible worlds for drivers, it features a new wider chassis, potent drivetrain, and major updates to the suspension package and geometry. Team Losi Racing continues to push the envelope of performance with the 8IGHT-X Buggy.

Key Features.
Improved suspension geometry
The 8IGHT-X Next Gen suspension geometry has been completely revamped making a car that is fast, nimble, and easy to drive. This includes a myriad of updates including kingpin inclination, trailing spindles, wider front pivot with less scrub radius, narrower rear pivot, longer rear shocks, and updated hub offset

Wider chassis
Chassis width has been increased to aid in stability and gives the buggy a more neutral feel.

Adjustable Castor Blocks
20 degree castor blocks allow the height of the spindle to be adjusted.

Bleeder Shock Caps
Machined aluminum shock caps with threaded bleeder holes for easy and consistent bleeding of oil.

Larger bearing spindles and hubs
The pinion bearing size in the front and rear has been increased for added durability.

Cab Forward Style Body
Cab forward design helps with overall down force, which improves steering and overall stability.

Chassis Side Guards
New chassis side guards that have an improved fit onto the chassis.

Large Footprint Engine Mount
Lightweight large footprint engine mount that reduces flex underneath the engine to eliminate chassis fatigue on high traction race surfaces.

Chassis Balance
The weight has been moved forward in the chassis to provide a better driving balance to the vehicle.

Steering Rack
Redesigned steering rack allows more ackerman adjustments and an improved servo saver eliminates bellcrank bind during high loads.

Shock Towers
The redesigned machined 7075-T6 aluminum shock towers feature updated camber link holes as well as a taller rear tower.

Better Diff Access
The front and rear diff case has been altered to allow easier access to the differentials without removing the bulkheads from the vehicle. The center diff can be accessed via split center diff mounts with the removal of only four screws allowing all of the brake mechanics to stay intact.

Sway Bar System
New sway bar system has adjustable length links to allow better equalization of each side of sway bar as well as collars to keep the sway bars centered.

Equalized driveline
The center drive shaft angles have been modified so they are equal front to rear allowing for a more 4WD feel to the vehicle.

Updated Radio Tray
An updated radio tray now puts the throttle servo near the engine to eliminate additional linkage. The updated radio tray will ensure the throttle servo is rigidly mounted to avoid any flex by floating the servo off of the center differential.

Optimized Shocks
The shocks are optimized and lightened to decrease the center of gravity and lower the weight of the car as well as offer the use of both 3.5mm and 4.0mm shock shafts.

Metric Hardware
The 8IGHT-X will move away from standard hardware and be on par with all other manufactures with metric hardware.
