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.
