Video Overview
Race-Proven Durability

In addition to its 4mm T-6 aluminum chassis plate, the 8IGHT Nitro buggy uses a Gen III radio tray that prolongs steering and throttle servo life with features like ball-bearing linkages and more accurate linkage alignment. It has been designed to resist wear and tear from chassis flex, too.

Brute Power

A powerful Dynamite .21 nitro engine gives you all the grunt you need to be a front runner, right out of the box. It is equipped with a convenient pull-start so you don’t have to buy a starter box to get racing right away.

Metal-Gear Drivetrain and Sealed Differentials

A metal-gear transmission and sealed differentials give the buggy all the durability it needs for long mains and rough conditions.

Center and Rear Dogbones

These eliminate the friction of a CV coupler and improve bump handling in the rear of the car.

Pre-Set Suspension Geometry

The suspension geometry is pre-set from the factory to match that used by professional team drivers so you can hit the track with confidence. And because it uses fixed-length turnbuckles and steering arms, you know it will remain consistent race to race.
