PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The pinnacle of outdoor RC car competition is 1/8 scale off-road racing. The tracks often stretch over 20,000 square feet, challenging each driver's abilities with numerous turns, washboard sections, and off-camber corners. Multiple elevation changes send the cars leaping more than 30 feet as they sprint for a place on the podium.

If you're eager to experience 1/8 scale off-road racing thrills for yourself, you'll need a vehicle that's adaptable to track conditions and to your own driving style. It should have a combination of race-proven features that will give you a head start toward the win - the right shock package, the best tyre compound and tread, and differentials tuned to put maximum power to the ground. It should be the 1/8 scale Losi 8IGHT-XTE 4WD Racing Truggy.

With generous track width and massive, 5.5 inch tyres, 1/8 scale truggies can easily speed over rough terrain without slowing to avoid mishaps. They're incredibly fast and they're tough enough to survive long racing mains on the world's largest outdoor tracks.

The Losi 8IGHT-XTE 4WD Racing Truggy fits that description to a "T". Based on the back-to-back ROAR National Champion TLR 8IGHT-X platform, it's loaded with engineering that's proven to win races. Standard features include a race-legal brushless power system and chassis specs with a full metal driveline and competition-caliber Spektrum S665 metal gear steering servo. If that's not enough to get your opponents' attention, the truggy's Pro-Line Racing OE-Spec Axis 8IGHT-XTE body, Blockade tyres, and Velocity wheels are the exact same race-proven designs used to compete around the world
The Losi 8IGHT-XTE delivers a winning value, too. To start racing with a 1/8 scale truggy that's this well-equipped, you'd normally have to buy a kit, assembly tools, and completion parts - spending as much as £1600 total or more - and then also invest the time needed to put it all together. You can race the 8IGHT-XTE as soon as you finish its paint-to-complete, cab-forward body in your favorite colours and install your choice of charged 4S LiPo battery. Keep a second charged battery on hand and you can be in and out of the pits in an instant, enjoying performance that's as aggressive as a nitro truggy but with electric power's simplicity.

World-class TLR option parts are directly compatible with the 8IGHT-XTE. As your skills grow, you can upgrade your truggy into an indomitable racing machine. If you're a fan of real auto racing, joining 1/8 scale RC racing with the 8IGHT-XTE will teach you about suspension dynamics and other subjects that make a difference in full-scale competition.

The RC racing hobby is ultimately about more than winning. It's about being part of a team, going to events, trading set-ups, and cheering each other on from the pits. To get there, start here - with the Losi 8IGHT-XTE 4WD. The fully assembled, ready-to-run 1/8 scale racing truggy comes with a Spektrum DX3 radio and requires only a 4S LiPo battery and compatible charger.

Spektrum 2250Kv Brushless Motor

With a 4S LiPo battery, the installed Spektrum 2250Kv brushless motor produces more than enough raw power to get every racer's adrenaline pumping.


Sensored Brushless System

The sensored brushless system of the 8IGHT-XTE allows its 130A ESC and 2250Kv motor to communicate with each other for precise control. Performance throughout the power band is super-smooth, without the cogging or stuttering of sensorless motors when applying throttle slowly from a stop.


Pro-Line Racing OE Parts

Race-proven components are included in the box! The Axis 8IGHT-XTE body, Blockade Tyres, and Velocity wheels are Original Equipment (OE-Spec) designs by Pro-Line that are used to compete around the world.


Championship Winning Heritage

The ready-to-run Losi 8IGHT-XTE is based on the 1/8 scale platform that won back-to-back ROAR National Champion titles, the TLR 8IGHT-X. When you're ready to take performance to the next level, upgrade your truggy with TLR option parts!


Race-Legal Chassis and Electronics

Just charge up your 4S LiPo battery and you can start racing today! The 8IGHT-XTE truggy's chassis and electronics are legal for racing right out of the box. No modifications are needed.


Paint-To-Complete Cab Forward Body

Although the 8IGHT-XTE comes ready-to-run, no other driver at the track will have a racing truggy that looks like yours. The main body section has been left clear so you can paint it in your own distinctive colours. (RC Body Paint is not included.)


Aluminium Chassis

The 4mm thick aluminium chassis of the 8IGHT-XTE gives the truggy a strong and stable foundation, as well as the durability needed to stay tough through long days of competitive racing.


Aluminium Shock Tower

Strong and lightweight, these aluminium shock towers support the shock movement needed to keep your 8IGHT-XTE glued to the track. Adjust the shock position using the tuning holes to match the race track and your driving style.


Fluid-Filled & Sealed Diffs

The front, centre, and rear differentials allow each tyre to drive independently and deliver maximum racing traction.


Front & Rear Sway Bars

Front and rear sway bars are standard on the 8IGHT-XTE. They keep your truggy's chassis level with the track as you race through the corners.
