The story about the Losi update has been removed from Neo. Neat.

Ooooh, that's interesting. Maybe neobuggy got slapped in the wrist by Team Losi. Here's the spyshot for those that missed it (original caption noted the "8 2.0" decals and black chassis, see the "2008 Worlds Team" decal also)

That's what I was thinking too.

I hear Oliver Stone is making the movie as I type this. It'll be sub-par and blame George Bush, but it's being made. Title is in the working stages, but I heard "8ight Past Noon" is the front runner. Tim Robbins is supposed to play Adam Drake. Should be a good watch.

I love that title for a movie... I wish I had x-ray vision to see inside the bags.

You'll have "XRAY" vision when Hudy copies the 8ight 2.0. Sorry - couldn't help myself.

For a conversion you can always wait for someone to part one out on ebay, just buy the parts you need.

I bought my 8ight about three months ago. I just got it all tuned up and ready to race. I took it out again this weekend. I am sure Losi is doing their job in exciting everyone to buy the latest and greatest. I however will be sticking with what I got. My current setup is ripping.

For all those speculators, speculate on what possibly Losi could add to their buggy that will REALLY make you that much faster. Is there anything? I still laugh about how much people say one brand is better then the other. THEY ARE ALL PRACTICALLY THE SAME!!! As far as watching the pros, the best drivers win, not the best buggies. But hey, I also know its fun to be the first at the track with the newest thing, but it is only worth so much.

my 2 cents!

So, on something like this how long does it take before parts for the old version become hard to find? Will they continue to manufacture parts for the old version indefinetly?
