This hobby is extremely cyclical. When I got into this hobby nearly 20 years ago dirt oval racing was the hottest thing going in my area. The hobby shop was within 20-minutes of a full-scale dirt oval track; you could convert any off-road car or truck to a dirt oval vehicle, and it was just fun. About 2 years after I got into the hobby that track shut down and moved to a new facility with a carpet track but many of us wished for a return to dirt oval racing. I am very happy to see that things have cycled around again and dirt oval racing is back and stronger than ever. One of the reasons why is due to the popularity in the 1/8-scale late model class which the L8IGHT Model fits into perfectly. I had a chance go get some quality wheel time with the L8IGHT Model and put it through the paces.
