It does appear to be the 8ight:

The engine alone is a small fortune.

Not sure what distinguishes it from the 1.0 though. Looks like the 3.0 is now sold with the gasser engine and the 8ight has become electric. Doesn't appear you can buy an rtr nitro 8ight anymore.

If the seal on the bottles of fuel are not broken, i say run it. If so, i wouldnt risk it. The combustibles can evaporate out of the bottle over time leaving only the oil and that isnt good to run.

To us it's a really nice rc car with a nice engine that needs to be looked after well and used to its full potential. That could be worth a bit of money if it's in the right condition...

Reminds me of the kyosho mad force, but it didn't have cantilever shocks. The XTM X-Factor had those kinds of shocks, but the layout of everything is different.
