Bittydesign have given the Force line a refresh for 2013 and will be released new 2.0 bodies. The first model to receive the new look is the Losi 8ight body. They have completely changed the front part of the cab, a new angle providing different downforce which helps reduce steering aggression compared to the original version. Also the introduction of a side air scoop reduces the air impact on the front to give the new 2.0 body a more neutral response. They also worked on the back, with two reverse scoops which help better balance the front/rear of the body giving to driver a better feeling. Produced with genuine 1mm Lexan polycarbonate, the body comes complete with decal sheet, window mask and protective film.

FTW Racing Components has added to its lineup of carbon fibre upgrades with the release of its wing spacer kits for the Team Losi 8ight series of 1:8 off-road cars. Testing has shown performance gains can be realized by fine tuning the orientation of the wing. FTW’s mount spacer kit creates additional wing tuning options through the use of pairs of spacers which can be placed between the rear shock tower and wing mount. The kit include two pairs of 4mm thick carbon fibre spacers, allowing the wing mount to be moved 4mm or 8mm away from the rear shock tower. Longer screws are supplied with the kit to facilitate proper fastening of the wing mount.
