New car looks sweet right ....only one problem, we just bought the nitro version. If could I would but it's not in my budget. I saw the video and it got me thinking, why don't i just buy the missing e components . The other major parts can be swaped. It's just for now until I have the money and regardless it won't hurt later having extra emergency parts. Now I'll get a list going and see if it's worth it. Again it's just for now, eventually i want both versions.

Hi.

The car looks very sleek with the low body and all.

I'm considering this, but I'm worried it would require me to invest in new batteries.
My Gens Ace are 49x46x138mm and the Orion Losi recommends is only 48x38mm.

I don't know if anyone has that kind of access yet to check something like that.

I am wondering this my self I just bought new Protek packs. Reno did post a picture of his on FB and he had a RC Concept 8000mah 120c lipo strapped in his and I don't think anyone makes an 8000mah lipo in LCG sizes. It looks to be in same size range of a Gens Ace batt.

Sounds like they might have over sold the number of kits that were already here in the US. Your preorder is probably coming from the 2nd shipment from overseas.

I just had our guys look into our system, there are more kits coming this week than there are kits on back order. Not sure where your dealer got his info, but it looks like all BO's will be fulfilled this shipment.

looked at the horizon site again today still says 4/8/19. talked to our sales rep and he says it is a bug in the system because they have the kits instock and are not shipping them yet and he also confirmed that they have more kits instock than total number of kits on backorder. thank you for the info

Default Setup

Here is the setup we ran at SIC race. Car was very good! Had electrical gremlins all weekend but car was good for being prototype and it was first time Tyler he laps on it.

Default Lenght of Front & Rear Shocks

Hi all!

Might you know the length of the bodies of the shocks?
I'm curious how much they have increased.

Thank you!

Default Losi 8ight XE on Order!

My XE is on pre-order with Horizon Hobby! Looking forward to some great back and forth discussion in this thread on the car. Hoping to be well dialed in and ready to go by race season this spring!
