I heard the Losi 8ight coming out a new improved version. Is it true?

Hello,
This is my first post on this forum ;o)

I have my brand new losi 8ight. I'm using as a starter box a Team Magic X5 Turbo 2.
If someone has the same items, could he post some photos of his starter box tuned for the losi ?

Thanks a lot.
Best regards, Nicolas

PS : For the new losi, perhaps a losi with all the optional parts included ;o)

Default Na man

Na man I am pretty sure they are not coming out with a new losi 8ight. What I think is people on diffrent forums are talking alot of smack about the 8ight and saying it needs this and this so they are just saying they should come out with a new one. You know like they are kidding. Those kind of people are dumb and most of them do not even have the 8ight.

What is this called that holds the pins in and where can you get them? Or is it a homemade type deal, if its homemade what do you use? its a great idea.

The XXX electric buggy platform has been around for 8 years and is only on its second geometric revision (the original XXX BKE was only to had factory hop-ups). There's no reason to expect an update or replacement for the 8IGHT buggy for quite some time.

There's NO WAY I could catch up on all the posts on this thread since I've been gone...LOL.

Congratulations to Mike Truhe for TQ and winning the 2007 Dirt Nitro Challenge at the Nitro Pit, as Losi put five buggies in the Pro A-Main (and NINE in the Sportsman A!).

...AND we won the RC8's debut

SUPERMAXXRICH,

Onpower push issue Part 3:



I have the hubs all the way back and I have the rear hub camberlinks all the way inside on the hubs.
I wish I had my setup sheet to post. Its kind of like shotting in the dark.

I think its in the droop and shock piston/oil. The black rear shock spring is something I am going to try.

Any ideas to decrease the push problem listed in my (Part 2) post?

I hadn't logged on to my account in so long it was deleted. LOL

KYRacer, play with front toe (less toe-out), camber (less rear, maybe more front) and ride-height. If you are still having the push come spring look me up at one of the local tracks.

Jared,

Thanks for the info. I just have not had much of track time with the buggy. Are you running the basic setup or the Jared special?
Did you enter the Ky state race coming up this Friday?

Ok someone mentioned using 2mm spacers to widen the stance to make for more stable handling. Did they use spacers or an offset wheel axle?

No I didnít register. I still havenít officially come out of winter hibernation. I should be there on Saturday goofing around, taking some pics, videos and maybe helping out with the computer some.

I started with the Drake setup that everyone started with last year and then made a few adjustments during the series finals race at Deanoís. Mostly I was adjusting the car for the cooler weather we had that day plus changes to the rear end to get it to rotate though the corner like I wanted. Without the car in front of me I canít quote you what I did from memory.

I think what they are talking about are putting 1mm shock spacers (Mugen shock spacer) behind the hub and then putting the wheel on. If you use the 1mm shim on each wheel hub it will give you and offset of 2mm. Which in return will give a more stable feel in the turns.

Jared,

Look me up and give me some pointers with my setup.
