Wow, some pretty interesting suspension technology, I wonder if the gearing is the same. Also doesnt look like theres much space for the 8ight radio tray, wonder if they are going to do away with the one peice tray. very nice.

first, look at the title at NeoBuggy.
Second, The first 8ight was developed in Finland by Jukka Steenary so I guess he has something to do with this one too.

that's alot of speculation! the 8ight was designed in the U.S. jukka helped, but didn't do it in Finland. if you read the noe buggy article, you wouldn't assume stuff like that.

I bet it wil be sold as a hop up for the juppies with the big $$.
Maybe if it performs well Losi will use it as a example of what could be.

I saw the article on neobuggy and the first thing I thought was, "I wonder how it will take before someone assumes this is directly from Losi?" No where in the article does it say anything about losi designing it. Here's the first part of the article, maybe I missed something

We have received some quite exciting information and photos from a design company based in Finland that has made a 'revised' Losi 8ight. Pumilio Design are the company behind it, the car has some pretty cool ideas, even 'ahead of it's time' dare we say.

Very cool. I see lots of neat ideas there. The short shocks on the rear is an idea that's being applied to the HB B8 car too, maybe too much angle on that Losi version but I could see that car working VERY well on a smoother track. Anybody else notice that it has front arms on the rear too?
