Default RE: Electric Racing Buggy or Truggy Suggestions??

ORIGINAL: overrev

The RC8 is also available in electric just as good as the losi eight better if you put the mamba monster combo in it. Four people at the track I go to run them all I can say wow.
The wait the 8ight was designed (i.e. centrally mounted engine) takes advantage of today's electric conversions. There was a thread on another forum I was on, and almost umamiously choose the 8 over the rc8 to do an electric conversion on.

For_The_Win, when they are talking about electric buggies and truggies you can infer that it is 1/8 scale.

EDIT: Here is the thread I was talking about. [link]http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric-off-road/262459-ease-conversion-rc8-8ight.html[/link] Seems like the 8ight's offset driveline is a big + too to centrally count your esc and mtoor.
