This is the MIP Pro8 TLR-SCTE E-Buggy Conversion Kit. Compatible with the SCTE and SCTE 2.0 trucks, MIP’s upgrade package transforms either of these popular vehicles into a competitive and agile 1/8th Super Lite e-Buggy that meets racing specifications for width and length. The thing that makes this kit unique in the world of 1/8 scale electric is that it’s upwards of two pounds lighter compared to an average 1/8th scale e-Buggy! To visualize the weight difference, it’s like removing a minimum of 162 seven gram square lead weights (commonly used in RC) worth of weight off of the average 1/8th scale.

The weight decrease makes this e-Buggy much more agile compared to its heavier counterpart, while at the same time puts less wear and tear on the race track, and increases turn marshal safety. Plus, this product is compatible with standard 2S batteries and 4wd short course electronics, as well as smaller 4S batteries & 1/8th scale electronics, giving you options never before available. Heavy, dangerous, track damaging, eight pound 1/8 scale electrics are a thing of the past. Lightweight and agile electric 1/8 scale platforms are the future, and MIP’s Pro8 Upgrade Kit for the SCTE/SCTE 2.0 can make that future a reality!

Chad Bradley's Take on MIP's Pro8
“The Pro8 is extremely fun to drive, and the power to weight ratio seemed perfect for indoor racing. Comparing a 4wd SC to the Pro8 Super Light eBuggy isn’t really a fair comparison. The benefits of using a buggy style body, 1/8-scale wing and tires with low profile sidewalls plays a huge effect on handling and gives the buggy an advantage. I highly recommend this product."

MIP Pro8 TLR-SCTE E-Buggy Conversion Kit
This kit is peak. After converting my losi scte2.0 to a 1/8th scale buggy I'm not going back. the car is lighter than a regular buggy and i can use my old motors and run practise laps on 2s at good speeds or run even up to 3s and 4s if you're up for a bit more jump clearing ability. build quality of the components is top notch and i really like the blue plastic. My only gripe is that it only comes with front springs. What about the rear springs? Also the real shock pistons are very very good and smooth but only if you have the tlr shock bodies not the blue anodised bodies that come with the scte rtr or ten rally x(no bleeder cap). After purchasing this i may get the mip pro kit to upgrade my losi ten rally x to scte 2.0 status under the hood
