Losi Mini 8ight


Picked up a Losi Mini 8ight the other day. Here are a few videos:

First drive (stock pack):

First drive with a two-year-old Outrage NRG 35c 3s pack from my BSR. Picked up the wrong pack. This one hadn't been charged since early spring:

This time I made sure the pack was freshly-charged:

Some on-board video I shot today:

First snow of the season today. Just had to take her out for a spin on the white stuff. Surprisingly, I found no moisture inside afterward.

PS: Cam date got reset awhile back, and I haven't gotten around to setting it.

EDIT: 11/26/11

I decided to try some on-road rubber, as I'm thinking that the stock tires won't last very long on asphalt. At least not the way I drive!

Picked up a set of Dynamite's 1/10th scale Super Sports w/radial tread. PN: DYN7961

They're responsive and they track well at speed, but traction isn't as good as it is with the stock tires. At $15 per set of 4, they're much cheaper to burn up on the asphalt, however.

Here are a few pics:

Decided to take her for a romp in the backyard. Here's the video:

We got some fresh snow last evening, so I decided to take the Mini 8ight out for some drifting fun in the snow.
