TLR 8ight-XE Race Electric Off Road Buggy Kit

The latest electric 1/8 scale off-road buggy kit from TLR is the EIGHT-XE. The EIGHT-XE comes hot on the heels of its nitro “X” series brother, sporting lots of improvements for increased handling, as well as improved durability.

When the original TLR 8IGHT-E came to market, it turned the electric 1/8 Buggy market on its lid with a unique chassis layout and innovative design. The all-new Team Losi Racing 8IGHT X-E 1/8 Electric Buggy takes it to the next level sporting a new from the ground-up design that sets the bar for all 1/8th scale Electric Buggies. It features a more traditional style chassis layout that has a neutral driving feel, improved jumping capabilities, and better bump absorption. It is essentially a brand new platform built from the ground up.

1/8th scale brushless off road buggies are one of the fastest off-road race machines that you can buy, but they are also great for bashing.

  1. This buggy looks really cool. Now the TLR Eight -XE comes as a kit, so that means it does not have a motor? What motor will you need?


    1. Hi Josh,
      Yes the TLR Eight XE is a kit, which does not have any electronics. You add your own electronics. That’s the beauty of it. You can use what ever power system you would like.
