Performance that racers respect.

The most thrilling and challenging form of RC car competition is 1/8 scale off-road buggy racing. The tracks often stretch over 20,000 square feet, with frequent turns, washboard sections, and off-camber corners that put the drivers’ abilities to the test. Moving at insane speeds over multiple elevation changes, the cars sometimes leap more than 30 feet in their sprint for the podium!

What does it take to succeed? The driver needs control skill, and a cool head under pressure. The buggy must be adaptable to changing track conditions and personal driving styles. A vehicle that already includes an ideal combination of race-proven features — such as the right shock package, the best tire compound and tread, and differentials tuned to put maximum power to the ground — offers a good head start toward the win.

That’s exactly what you get with the ready-to-run Losi 8IGHT-XE 1/8 Scale 4WD Racing Buggy. Based on the back-to-back ROAR National Champion TLR 8IGHT-X platform, it’s loaded with engineering that’s proven to win races. The sensored brushless power system, race-legal chassis and electronics, full metal driveline, competition-caliber Spektrum S665 steering servo, and other standard features are enough to get any racer’s adrenaline pumping even before the starting tone.

The Losi 8IGHT-XE also delivers serious bang for your buck. To enter 1/8 scale competition with a buggy this well-equipped, you’d normally have to spend $650+ on a kit, add about $600 worth of carefully chosen electronics, and then put it all together yourself after investing in tools and learning the required assembly skills. Before joining the races with the ready-to-run 8IGHT-XE, you just paint its cab-forward body in your signature color and charge up your choice of the recommended batteries.

Its on-track performance is as aggressive as a nitro machine but with the simplicity of electric power. Keep a second charged 4S LiPo battery on hand and you’ll be in and out of the pits in an instant. Because top-of-the-line TLR option parts are directly compatible, you can easily upgrade your Losi 8IGHT-XE into an absolutely indomitable buggy as your skills grow. If you’re a technically minded, competitive type in search of a long-term hobby you’ll love, look no further. Dive into 1/8 scale racing with the 8IGHT-XE and you’ll also learn about suspension dynamics and other topics that carry over into full-scale racing.

Ultimately, RC racing is about more than winning. It’s being part of a team, traveling to events, sharing set-ups, and supporting each other in the pit lane. To get there, start here — with the Losi 8IGHT-XE 4WD. The fully assembled, ready-to-run 1/8 scale buggy comes with a Spektrum DX3 radio and requires only a 4S LiPo battery and compatible charger.

  • Smooth, fast, and precise sensored brushless power racing system
  • Fully race-legal chassis and electronics
  • Gives first-time 1/8 scale competitors the most “bang for the buck”
