New Losi 2.0 Rallycross Buggy

Losi to Unveil Over 30 Enhancements in the 8IGHT 2.0 on 09.25.08

This is not that much of a surprise really as some of the new parts had been spotted at the worlds and when Neo buggy published an article it was retracted very quickly but below is what we currently know about the new Losi 8ight 2.0 rallycross buggy

- It's even lighter!
- The chassis is longer.
- The chassis, shock towers and rest of the aluminum components are all now anodized black.
- The shock towers are 25% lighter.
- The turnbuckles are lighter.
- All of the hardware is now black.
- The new fuel tank (still clunk style) is IFMAR and EFRA legal.
- New front caster blocks with additional adjustment holes.
- New rear hubs.
- New rear outer hingepins now 3-millimeters thick (original 8IGHT= 2.5mm)
- New brake discs.
- Machined slots in the chassis help align the engine mounts, so you know your engine is perfectly straight. This ensures proper gear mesh.
- Swaybars are now etched for quick identification.
- New servo tray places the throttle servo 7-millimeters further from the engine. This allows room for additional bracing to prevent the throttle servo from flexing under load.
- New body is smaller and the engine's cooling head is completely exposed for better cooling.

Hotbodies D8 rallycross buggy build review pictures

Piraterc have received pictures of the build of the new Hotbodies D8 Buggy Form Jim Thompson

The diff are very good top quality.
Kit builds well open 1 bag and inside are all the bags for that part of the build.
No issues on building the rear arms seemed a bit tight so I backed out the gearbox screws.
The radio tray battery compartment only takes a 1500 lipo battery but you could swap receiver and battery over.
You may have to run +1 wheel hex if you run smaller diameter wheels at the from Losi hubs fit ok.
A must have on build is an electric screw driver set as some screws are very long!
On build would give this kit 8 out of ten.
Ten out of ten for value.
Will see how it runs soon.
There is a lot of scope with this kit for weight reduction if you want it lighter.
