I hope that the 8ight WE (if it's called that) will be as big of an improvement that the XX4 WE is over the regular XX4.

I gotta wonder if 1/10 is going away to be replaced with 1/8.

Then we'll have an electric 1/8 class and a nitro.

I don't think (hope) nitro isn't going anywhere.

Rumors are going around that the Brushless 8ight will be out next year but nothing about a new 1/8 Buggy, nothing wrong with the current one. 3 years old and still kicks every other ones arse

Yeah, if the new losi does come out, I won't get one. My 8ight is going well. There are a few guys at my club with them and they are always up the front, and they have always said that if losi bring out a new buggy, they will not get one until other makes of cars really start to dominate every meet. Which really, why would u get a new car if your old one is fine

They won't make a new buggy, the 8ight isn't even 2 years old yet. It still wins races.

I can make a guess on what will be released first.
Well, lets see here...????.....a new 4S lipo battery, they are also releasing their "own" 1/8 brushless motor and ESC, a brushless conversion kit.....I dont think it takes a rocket scientist to figure out what will be coming real soon????
