Wow. ...and I just wrote them and asked if they had new stuff coming out soon. Of course they told me "No new buggy..." I guess what they mean by new buggy and what I mean by new buggy are two different things.

Oh well, good thing I didn't order my spare buggy and new GRP engines. I guess maybe I'll go Kyosho and Trinity.

They must plan on still selling the 8ight though. Why would Losi go to all the trouble of bringing out a electric conversion kit & parts if they were going to stop making the 8ight?

I'd hope so.. that'd be cool. Pull something like they did with the LST -> LST2.. and how Kyosho did the SP1 -> SP2 , etc.

This post makes me laugh. There isn't a kit out there that doesn't need upkeep. Get a Jammin Truggy and look at the drivetrain after a gallon. Or talk to a Kyosho Truggy owner about the rear gear mesh issues. I know you're referring to your Losi buggy, but what I'm trying to point out is that any vehicle you drive will need work and upkeep. Losi isn't any worse than others.
