Team Losi Racing have introduced the new TLR 8IGHT-X1/8 Nitro buggy kit. It’s a brand new, completely redefined racing platform crafted from the ground up and designed for drivers wanting more. 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. All new suspension arms have been designed to accept stiffener plates that will allow racers to tune the flex of the suspension. The kit will include molded plates with optional carbon fiber plates available separately. The 8IGHT-X comes with 20 degree castor blocks allowing the height of the spindle to be adjusted. 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.

New TLR 8IGHT nitro buggy teaser

See: Team Losi Racing

TLR has released a teaser video about their forthcoming 8IGHT X (well maybe because we do not really know how it will be dubbed). The video reveals very little regarding the details of the new car, but our sources have entrusted us told us that tests on different tracks had already taken place in US, information confirmed by the photos published during the Horizon Hobby RC Fest, but also in Europe. It seems more than likely that the upcoming Euro warm-up and the ROAR 1/8-scale Off-Road Fuel Nationals will be used to unveil a pre-production version of the buggy. A release date set approximately in autumn was mentioned.
