Talking New 8ight owner! *pics*

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Just picked up and 8ight last night, can't wait to pick up a radio for it and start burning nitro!

Question. Are there any mandatory hop ups and that need to be done to the 'pro' kit? This car is bone stock. Also what parts should I carry as spares at all times?

Rock on!

Sweet ride Revos5!!

Looking to pick up an 8ight T myself. There is an aluminum top plate and chassis brace available, as well as skid plates for bottom of chassis. For spares not sure, most likely the usual stuff suspension-arms and blocks, hinge pins and braces, front spindles and carriers.

What engine do you have on board?

Some people like to run the King Headz Radio Tray stiffener, although I did not run it last year. You might want to use a different steering servo horn, as the stock insert will strip eventually. A couple things you should do:

1) Capture the front & rear centre CVD's with shrink tubing, or any other appropriate item.

2) On the body, at the rear mounting hole, be sure to elongate the hole to allow for chassis flex without ruining the body.

3) Capture the outer steering links to prevent them from popping off during a race. Need part#LOSA6050 and tapered head washers.
