Thumbs up

Thanks for the reply, JK. I decided to try it just for the hell of it, since most all the screws are stripped, and it seems to work great Just had to ream out the aluminum upper plate spacers and all the screws fit just the way they should; much tighter than they ever did in any of the TC3 or 4 gearboxes I've ever had. I'm hoping that AE just made the holes slightly too large for the 4-40 hardware and that the 3mm will hold better over the long run. Only bummer now is that the car uses metric and SAE hardware, but working on late-model Fords has taught me to deal with that!

I'm stoked...saved $20 in new gearboxes

Whats the standard way to run the carvers on the T4? Angled rib pointing toward the chassis? I know you can run them either way but what is the way do you recommend to start? And are most just running the stock foams? I run at SRS.

Here is the mounting instructions from our website:

Mounting:

The Carvers are a highly detailed tire that can be mounted in more than one manner. It is recommended that they are mounted with the "V" shaped ribs to the inside of the wheel when running on a loamy condition track. This orientation will provide more overall steering. If the Carvers are mounted with the "/" angular ribs to the inside of the wheel, the tires will be more progressive and have less steering. This is recommended for blue groove type tracks or where less steering is desired. This information is based on extensive testing, but may not apply to every situation. Please try the tires mounted both ways to see which suits your driving style and local conditions.

Anyone on here tell me about drilling shock pistons on a losi 8ight 2.0, Bit size, purpose, Pistons, and the difference it makes versus standard pistons?

No, the arms are different, where they mount to the bulkhead. You can make them work, with a little bit.
Bellcrank. I don't know for sure, but I would say no. The way the BJ4 was made, some of the parts are easier to make in aluminum. AE's car has molded parts.
Good luck on the stickers.

It shouldn't be too hard to make a hi-flow body for the RT5!

Its basically the same as the hi-flow already made for the T4, just different body mount hole locations! I made one fir on my RT5...

Just thinking out loud!

Also any plans on doing some of those SWEET spoked rulux wheels..

I would buy a bunch, and I am sure I am not alone!

Good luck to all the JC drivers at the Hobby Haven Labor Day race. That is a very good race to attend. I attended it a couple years back at there old location and had a blast.

The Hobby Haven Shoot was definately a blast. I just raced the electric day. Unfortunately with being out of town for work for a week and a half then practing friday and racing all day saturday I couldn't stay for the mains. I had a great time. Thanks to JConcepts and Hobby Haven for a fun filled event.

I TQ'd mod buggy...
won the first main...
got really, really tired...
blew A2...
Jason won it...
got even more tired...
fried my first brushless motor ever in A3...
Jason wins it all...
I somehow still get second...
got home at 4am.

Jason won 4wd, too.
Zach won mod truck.
The electric racing didn't get over until 2am so its all kind of a blur for me now. LOL
I'm not sure about nitro day.

I'd like to thank Jconcepts for sponsoring the race. I had a great time. Hope they all did, too.

It was great to have these guys sponsor the event and to actually come up and hang with us all. I doubt you would see any other MFG/Design company come out to a small event like this and support the way they did.

Because of that they will definitely get more of my business.

Nitro day went alittle smoother than electric as the bugs had already been ironed out. Mac won pro followed by Tony Bacon and Shaggy. That race came down to the wire as mac got a terrible start and battled from a lap and a half down to get the win for associated.
