Losi - Electric 8ight

Losi est en train de travailler sur un 4x4 1/8e Electrique

We were at the track shooting some action shots and we notice the Losi Team was out testing a mysterious new car. You can try to figure out what's missing from that "factory white" Losi 8IGHT. It's not missing color, wheels, a body, or an antenna (okay it's missing that antenna). If you look close you see it's missing an engine, pipe, and if you have XRAY vision a fuel tank.

That silence is the sound of what should be the first production brushless 1/8-scale from a major manufacturer. This will eliminate the cost of buying an entire nitro kit and having to buy a separate conversions (more money). When, where, and how will all be answered when Losi is ready to show the details of the car...but for now if you are thinking about big electrics this will make for many good dreams about silent racing.

Des kits de conversions (Ex: Novak) existent actuellement mais qu'un fabricant travaille sur un projet d'une telle nature, cela est plus intéressant et souligne l'intérêt pour cette catégorie par rapport aux risques et nuisances engendrées par le combustible utilisé dans les catégories thermiques

Ultra Narrow Drivetrain Layout

The revolutionary ultra narrow drivetrain layout positions the brushless motor in the center of the chassis for quicker response, sharper handling, and a plush ride.

LOSA0803-GAL7.jpg

Oversized Shocks and Machined Premium Shock Towers

The oversized, precision machined aluminum shock bodies are hard anodized for smooth operation and wear resistance. Threaded shock collars offer easy yet precise adjustment of pre-load and ride height, and strength and durability are added with the extra large 4mm diameter Titanium Nitride shock shafts. The front and rear shock towers are machined from premium aircraft aluminum alloy, and each shock tower is strategically lightened for optimized performance without sacrificing durability.

LOSA0803-GAL10.jpgLOSA0803-GAL11.jpg

Sealed Differentials & Housings

Both the front and rear differentials and housings are sealed against the elements, protecting each diff from foreign matter that can affect performance and durability. The tight tolerance diff gears take better advantage of the viscous effect for superior traction and acceleration.

LOSA0803-GAL12.jpg

Pre-glued XBT Tires and Dish Racing Wheels

The 8IGHT-E is outfitted with Losi's XBT 1/8 Buggy Tires, the same tires used on the 8IGHT. These tires feature the proven, traditional Losi "X" pattern design for superior traction, excellent rough-track handling and a comfortable feel.

Dans la crèmerie où je me rends, je leur ai demandé s'ils pensaient que l'électro 1/8 allait bientôt marcher.

Ces derniers m'ont répondu qu'ils n'y croyaient pas du tout, ou alors dans 10 ans, avec un rire entendu.

Et bien, je suis certain depuis le début que cette formule va faire un malheur, et qu'un championnat ne va pas tarder à voir le jour, même dans notre cher pays, toujours un peu à la traîne....

C'est super alléchant en tout cas, je n'y vois que des avantages.

Christophe.
