Kyosho dbx 2.0 it's actually 1/9 scale but comes with 1/8 buggy wheels tires and 1/10 scale electrics (540 4pole) the stock motor can run on 2s but goes better on 3s but if you upgrade to a higher kv motor then 2s is plenty, theres also a .18 nitro version. I have the drx which is a rally car and it's tuff the diffs, arms, pivot ball suspension are all like 1/8 scale. YouTube the dbx I think you will be impressed

already been said kinda... but converting a 1/10 SC would most likely be the best way. the spec are within 10mm on wheelbase and width. and the 1/10 SC are built to run on 2s... if you try to run a 2s in a 1/8 buggy it would most likely be much slower and or run too hot + shorter run time for the extra weight of the buggy and it's rotating mass.

The Intech ersc10 and tekno sct410 are both very much like a 1/8 scale buggy. The Caster Rapture is the exact same way and pretty unique in its design. Those are pretty well you best bets as far as durability. The proline pro2 line is very durable as well.

As mentioned Malin is running the Xray XB8E in the "Light" buggy class indoors here.

She runs a 2S battery and a 550 size 4pole 4300KV motor.

7 min in race tempo = ESC 55.4*C / Motor 51*C / Battery 36*C / Used 3100-3200mAH

9 1/2 min. in race tempo = ESC 59.5*C / Motor 70*C / Battery 56*C

This is with standard fan on the ESC and a small 30mm high air flow fan on the motor. ESC is run in blink mode with no timing or boost added.

For practice we set the timer on the transmitter for 8 min runs.
This way it comes off the track with the battery cool to the touch and the motor and ESC never over 60*C.

The buggy has no special lightened parts added other than a smaller and lighter battery and motor compared to a full 4S 1/8 buggy setup.

Runs like a Short Course with the same motor/battery but with way way better handling
