Losi knows a thing or two about releasing a successful mini platform vehicle. The Mini T, Mini LST and the Mini 8IGHT have all been huge hits and were all based off of larger vehicles that were plenty successful in their own right. Now, Losi is back at it, with a not-so-mini mini, the Mini 8IGHT-T . Inspired from the 1/8-scale 8IGHT-T Truggy, we here at RC Driver had a first look at this mini truggy and if our reveal is any indication, this will be another success story for Losi. Check out all of the cool RCD Reveal shots below and see for yourself!

WRAP UP I am already harping on Walter, our staff photographer, to finish up the studio shots on this little truggy so we can get the test drive of the 8IGHT-T Mini done. This complete package has it all: a waterproof brushless power system, battery pack and charger and a fantastic Spektrum radio system that is AVC-equipped. While self-described as a 1/14-scale mini, it looks similar in size to old-school 1/10-scale vehicles like the Tamiya Hornet and Grasshopper. So do you like what you see? Then be sure to be on the lookout for our full Driven review of the 8IGHT-T Mini in the shiny pages of RC Driver magazine in the very near future.
