The term "truggy" started with the first buggy/truck conversions... these trucks are exactly the same as the buggies, except they are stretched wider and longer... and of course have a truck body and tires slapped on.

Once upon a time the truck class was Tmaxxxs etc... then guys started converting buggies to race in the monster truck class. IMO that's why truggies still have the buggy wing. Personally I think it's stupid but that' sthe way it is.

Now there is a separate 'truggy' class and monster truck.

monkey. I was just trying to stop it before it gets started, again, and again, and again.


No issues with the truck so far.

The truck not mine it's my friends.. And it hit the track today for the 1st time and it was really good!! The lap times he's was turning was just as fast as the gas truggies and at times faster! The truck can run ten mins at that speed with the 4S Lipo pack and sure it can go longer with a 5S pack.. And he's got it setup to where you can get the other batt.pack in there with in 4 to 5 sec. I got to try it before we took off from the track,and the truck feel's great.. It's has that power as soon as you pull the triger and the top end was sick to.. Time will tell if this kind of thing takes off..

Race Rollers are the latest innovation from Team Losi. Combining cutting-edge vehicle design with precise, at-the-factory assembly, Race Rollers are dialed right out of the box.

What makes a Race Roller race-ready?


The 8IGHT-T Race Roller is a competition truggy chassis that has been hand assembled and tuned to exacting specifications. Each and every screw is installed to specific torque settings to maintain consistent adjustment. Additionally, every screw or bolt that secures metal-to-metal contact features threadlock to prevent backing out or loosening due to vibration. The clutch assembly is also completely assembled and ready to install on the engine of your choosing (engine not included), and the differentials and shocks are pre-built and filled with 100% pure silicone fluid. Once assembled, the 8IGHT-T Race Roller is given a complete inspection to ensure that it meets Team Losiís requirements for durability and performance. You can be sure that your 8IGHT-T is ready for serious competition as soon as you open the box.
