Default Losi 8ight 2.0 rtr

Does anyone know what servos will be in this 2.0 rtr. Im wanting to buy my son an 1/8 scale buggy and want to get on rtr for him so I don't have to worry about building another one right now.

Most likely JR Z270 for throttle and Z590 or Z650 for steering.

Default Very good question....

I'd like to know that answer myself. The package looks awesome as it is! Spektrum radio with TELEMETRY! Starter box, .21 Engine so you are legal for ROAR sanctioned races, receiver pack. NICE!

Hopefully they put in a bit better servo than what came with the 1.0 setup. Hopefully something with at least 100 oz/in. on both throttle & steering.

Ya I am deff buying the RTR, so I can sell everything/spares and turn it into a 2.0 E. I like the Blue chassis and towers would look good with an E Conversion and paint scheme.

Ya I would bet they are on the cheaper end of servos. I bet you could get away with just upgrading the steering from whatever they throw on there and move it too the throttle servo.

The 650 has 142oz of torque. It would be nice if they would use it for the throttle also.

I just back ordered this rtr for my son at amain. They say it will be in stock on the 24th so we will see. I sure hope so. I went ahead and ordered the last JR z9100t they had in stock also. Im gonna put it on the steering and whatever is there now will go to the throttle for now. Does anyone know if the losi 4s 2200mah lipo starter box battery will work with the box that comes with this package ?
