OK but can the RX8 handle 540 sized motors ok without any loss in performance compared to the RS Pro? I only ask because I plan to get into 1/8th scale as soon as I can and plan to run RX8's so I would rather stick with one kind of ESC if I can.

Also what are the sizes of a 540 and 550 motor? Most of the motors I look at dont state 540 or 550. Thanks for the info guys!

550 is basically the same diameter of a 540 just longer the 1/8 scale motors ie castle 1515,1517 and tekin 1/8 motors are bigger in both diameter and length
people with a rx8 at my track run it with either a 550 novak ballistic or 550tekin sc motor....regardless of what motor u get u will have to get another motor for an 1/8th scale.
i use a novak gtb and either a 550 or 540 motor the 550 runs A LOT!!! cooler idk what anyone says..550has more rpm tho so it's a choice/depends on what track u run issue.
the only negative issue is that the rx8 is real big for the tt..will not fit under the body unless you move the battery tray fwd and mount it behind the battery.

how about this one?

That is what I am currently using. After two race days, I'm very happy with it. It is noisy, but that's about the only drawback I've noted.

The RX8 will handle anything motor wise you can throw at it. The only thing it will not do is add boost like the smaller RSpro which you should never need in a mod motor application.

Questions?? Shocks?

Besides the Pro-Lines, has anyone found any good shocks that are a direct bolt on?

The shocks are a definite weak spot i have stripped the threads on both front shock bodies, and the eclips come off inside the shock and then the piston is loose.

I have had the complete opposite experience with my TT's shocks. I thought they were really high quality and have not skipped a beat yet. I wouldnt spend a dime to replace the stock shocks personally..... they are good enough as is IMHO.
