Default Rims.

Anyone know what type of wheel offsets Losi is going to use for the 8ight-T? Losi has been known to use 'non industry standard" equipment in their initial kit releases (not bashing, I wish Losi's some inovations were enough to move the market).

Seems like there are number of Truggy wheel / offset combos. Wonder what they will be?

the new Pro-Line 1/2 off set rims is what will work when using non Losi tires...

Having seen the Losi 8T tire/rim combo I'm very confident that it's the same dimensions as the GRP Grip premounted truggy tires.

Losi rims have more offset and are a larger diameter....

Losi's 8IGHT-T is now 5-for-5 for big race TQ's, and 4-for-5 in big race wins! Woo!

Congratulations to Travis Amezcua for TQ'ing and Mike Truhe for winning the A-Main at the 2007 Nitro Challenge!

Not a bad start, eh!?

Looks like Losi Team really are onto something with the 8ight design.

Aaron, looks like the 8Ts are being shipped today. Since it comes as a Race Roller, is there anything that need to be changed, or set up different from the way it comes? Will there be any set ups posted?

Honestly? I'm not sure. I don't have mine yet!

I'll get one soon and beat it up and compare notes with everyone. The truck should be fine, out of the box, to go race and have fun with.
