Prepare for Losi domination in the Truggy class - I'm hearing of people making their first National A finals using the 8ight T.

That being the case, it's pretty safe to assume that Losi have anticipated this demand and that more than 50 have been made. Perhaps even as many as 100.........


(Note slight element of sarcasm here!!)

C'mon guys!! This Truggy class will become the off road class of choice before long and the 8ight looks set to be the class leader at this point in time. We're obviously talking much larger numbers here. Maybe Aaron might shed some light on how many have been produced to date.

sadly, team losi products never reach our shore. Even our LRP Asian Nitro Masters 2007.
Quote:
The LRP Asia Nitro Masters 2007 in Malaysia is an official event sanctioned by LRP, Germany. Mr. Michael Gaul, LRP Sales Manager Export and Europe’s top GP offroad driver as well as Andreas Myrberg, Sales Representative at LRP and Europe’s top EP and GP onroad driver will be present to support and join the event.

The event will be organized as a two days event and will take place on 14th and 15th of April 2007. This year, we will be having more activities and classes to make this event fun filled and full of racing adrenalin.
NOT a single Losi products there. Sad but true.

I do wish i can drive the 8T. Must be exciting.

I raced a CRT all last summer and just got an 8T and after the 6 tanks(yes, only 6 so far ) I've ran on it,there is a definite difference in the way it turns.I never had a reliabilty problem with the CRT,so only time will tell for the 8T.

I have had 2 CRT's and i have an 8T. The 8t turns much better then the CRT, it accelerates faster, jumps farther flater then the CRT, and just feel planted. Just follow the instructions, and you wont have any problems.

I really dont know about ordering for Asia. I was starting to second guess my 8t purchase when it was in the mail, but once i got it on the track, and saw it make a jump with about 1/3 less throttle then my CRT needed, and then make the turn with more corner speed i was sold.

BTW, where do we find what 8T number we have??
