Overview
The all-new Team Losi Racing® 8IGHT-XE ELITE buggy builds on the championship-winning heritage of its predecessors with updates to the suspension geometry and drivetrain as well as the chassis layout that make it both easier to drive and tougher to beat. Plus, it includes the option parts our award-winning race team uses to win races around the world. It's ready for high-level competition right out of the box. The 8IGHT-XE ELITE has a combination of features second-to-none including carbon center diff brace, 3.5mm shock shafts, aluminum front brace, front universals, 10mm wing riser, wider hexes, new pistons, carbon fiber arm inserts, poly-carbonate wing, updated rear CVA axles, and so much more. In a class all by itself, the 8IGHT-XE ELITE buggy is designed for the elite racer and podium-ready.

Pro Level Race Ready
The 8IGHT-XE ELITE now includes the option parts our elite level race team utilizes to win races around the world, thus making for a vehicle that is high level competition ready right out of the box. Included option parts are carbon center diff brace, 3.5mm shock shafts, aluminum front brace, front universals, 10mm wing riser, wider hexes, new pistons, carbon fiber arm inserts, poly-carbonate wing, and updated rear CVA axle.

7075 3mm Aluminum Chassis
A new ELITE chassis that moves weight forward and decreases wheelbase is included to give the car more overall grip. Chassis width has been increased from the 4.0 to X to aid in stability and give the buggy a more neutral feel.

Updated rear CVAs
The 8IGHT XE ELITE will include rear CVAs with an updated axle and shaft providing more overall rear grip to the car and better tracking through the bumpy conditions.

Front Universals included
The 8IGHT XE ELITE will includes updated universals for the front which makes the car smoother existing turns and aids in the flow in bumpy track conditions.

Aluminum Front Brace
The 8IGHT XE ELITE includes an updated aluminum front brace that provides smoother steering response.

+1 Hexes
Updated +1mm width hexes are included for the rear of the 8IGHT XE ELITE to add stability in high speed turns.

Two Wings and Wing Riser
The 8IGHT XE ELITE includes updates to both the IFMAR wing as well as our polycarbonate wing. We also include a 10mm wing riser for added rear grip.

New Aluminum Motor Mount
Lightweight and durable motor mount that aids in heat dissipation and is easy to adjust for quick gearing changes. The motor is now mounted to the chassis rather than hanging off the center diff for added durability.

Steering Rack
The steering rack allows more ackerman adjustments and an improved servo saver to eliminate bellcrank bind during high loads.

Bleeder Shock Caps
Updated machined aluminum shock caps with threaded bleeder holes for easy and consistent bleeding of oil. New bladders are also included for better bump handling.

Shock Towers
The 8IGHT XE ELITE now includes black anodized machined 7075-T6 aluminum shock towers with updated camber link holes previously included with the 8XE.

Better Diff Access
The front and rear diff case have been altered to allow easier access to the differentials without removing the bulkheads from the vehicle. The front diff case has been updated to allow better fitment of the front arms while the rear case has been updated to increase the strength of the area holding the shock tower.
