PART 2
I don't know why, but this one you can watch in high quality. Is it something to do with how many videos you've put up?

FYI, the new motor plates that allow the use of long shank pinions are in stock now. We'll get an image up soon, but they are available.

Good news,

The RC8 conversions should be shipping by Monday (maybe Friday ). We're working hard to get the instructions finished up and we'll be posting some pics real soon. Stay tuned!

I see Tekno makes 13-17t long shank pinions, but only make a 13t clutch bell. Are there plans to extend this? Or do clutch bells from other manufacturers fit?

If I am not mistaken, all Revo clutch bells will fit because Tekno made there first conversion around a Revo.

Any clutch bell for the Revo will work.

We'll have 13-17t clutch bells available shortly (1 week or so).

The stock Revo bells will work, but they are not hardened and will fail eventually. Our new clutch bells will be hardened and is what we did all of our testing with. We haven't had a single bell fail yet

Thanks for chiming in Tekno

I should have added the fact any while Revo CB would work they likely won't last . As Tekno noted the stockers were meant to work with plastic spur gears and are not hardened.

Well folks, here's the long awaited RC8 conversion. We've been loving this buggy since it came out and we're very excited to finally be able to share our factory finish kit with you. It is now available

Key features are the electric specific 4mm chassis, optimized weight distribution, and of course the Elektri-Clutch system.

You'll see we moved the center diff assembly forward and left of center to move the battery closer to center than any other conversion on the market. We even included some custom CVD's to make sure the kit wouldn't require any additional items to complete. Standard factory look and molded plastic support pieces and hardware are also included. Let us know what you think.

Wow, if I may say so myself, that is the best looking brushless buggy I have seen. Great job guys. Hopefully all that hard work pays off with many purchases.

Default Dumb question...Brakes

How does one go about getting the brake servo to work with a MMM and a M8?

I really like the look of the kit. What is the maximum battery size you can use though? It looks the steering servo limits your battery size. I normally run enerland and zippy cells which are 160mm long.
