Default What are differences in 8ight-T 2.0 roller and the rtr?

Other than the obvious (engine, electronics, radio, etc) what are differences between the 8ight-T 2.0 roller and the RTR version. I noticed that the chassis is different, not real sure what is different though, but what else is different?

Just look at the Losi website.

8T 2.0


There are 300 threads on this site about this. But if you go to the losi website and compare the two, you will find the differences.

Thanks for the help everyone. I had no idea there were 300 threads discussing the differences between the 8ight-t 2.0 roller and the 8ight-t 2.0 rtr. Learn something new every day.

assholes

I'm not certain on all the differences, but the main thing is the chassis, shock towers, shock shafts, and hinge pins.
RTR Chassis is 6061 aluminum, Roller is 7075 aluminum and the tuned flex chassis. Same with the shock towers I believe though they are the same geometry.

RTR uses standard steel hingepins and shock shafts, Race roller has all Ti Nitride coated shafts and pins. Not that this makes much of a difference.

I don't know of any other real differences between the 2. The chassis and shock towers are the main differences.

Thank you very much, that was the information that I was looking for.
