Default difference between losi 8ight 2.0 and losi 8ight PRO

Hi guys i am looking at a losi buggy for sale and it is a losi 8ight PRO but not a 2.0. I have tried searching but cant find what the difference is. Can i still get parts for the PRO?

can someone help me?

There never was a 8ight marked as PRO, what you're looking at could be a 1.0 kit buggy. It shares so many parts with the 2.0 buggy, so parts are no problem.

There are also quite a few parts that are not the same.

do yourself a favor and pick a 2.0 up. It is noticeably better than the older kits, and they can be found for pretty cheap right now.

Yeah, that's a 8ight pro, the rtr had a different colour chassis and shock towers and yes they are the original losi 8ight buggy. I still have one and it's a great buggy.

Looks like it just got flushed down the American River and then decided to do the Rubicon Trail.
