Thumbs up << Losi 8T 2.0 RTR >>Are they going to do it???

I am thinking about buying a Brushless 1/8th truggy or rtr 1/8th trugg. I know that Losi has the RTR 2.0 buggy and was wondering if they are going to make the 2.0 truggy and RTR. Also any thoughts about the new RC8T RTR. Thanks afor all your help, its much needed!

I am sure one will be coming, just havent heard any type of date yet. I too am trying to hold out for this truggy, I just hope it doesnt take forever to get here. It would have been nice if they had release the truggy rtr first before the buggy, but I know they need to go with the most popular class first. That 2.0 buggy rtr is off the hook. The demand for it will be crazy and that in itself may slow down the release of the truggy.

I would assume a couple months still. If anything fom the past is an indication(1.0b, 1.0t, 2.0b) the rtr could be another 2-3 months down the road. Especially with the buggy rtr just comming out and the 2.0T roller just recently, I would bet they are pretty busy at the moment.

Default RCX

I am going to RCX in Pomona California next weekend and Horizon is going to be there. I can pick their brains to see if they are. I do know about the Buggy RTR, That should be pretty awesome!

Probably later down the pipe. For right now though the RC8T-E is the bad boy...and for the price of 399 you can't touch it.

Thumbs up

I am in the process of making an 8T into a 1/8th brushless and maybe am thinking about possibly getting a 8t 2.0 rtr nitro and having best of both worlds. That would be sweet if it came out!

It exists! The Truggy 2.0 RTR is already available for retailers to order. The LHS I work for has already ordered some, although Horizon isn't shipping them yet. The buggy will ship first, though.

I'm impressed with the 8ight 2.0RTR. It seems like more of a top-level complete package than an RTR. The original 8ight RTR definitely had its downfalls.

I can only assume that they'll come through with the truggy version.

Since all companies think that RTR is where the money is now, I'm sure that they will put on on the market within six months.

Talking Price?

Is the price going to be the same as the buggy 2.0 rtr which is 699.99?? And if anyone gets any more info can they put the link on this page? Thanks!
