With the release of the new Team Losi 8ight 2.0, the prices of the old 8ight has dropped quite a bit. Even though the 8ight isn't the most recent 8th Scale buggy, it is still an excellent buggy. It is extremely durable, great for racing, and are very common. It helps if it is a very common buggy, because your local hobby shop usually has parts, and there are people that can help you with it at your track. I have had mine for over a year now, and have had nothing but success. I am running the new 2.0 now, and I am very happy with its performance. If you want to, you can always upgrade the old 8ight to the new 8ight 2.0 sometime down the road.
