At any rate add me to the E, 3.0 club. Just picked it up today. Any tips?
Congrats on the e-3.0 purchase! Ive had mine built for a week or so now and I'm loving it. Went together great, no kissing parts and fitment was top notch. Only thing I would suggest is the losi 45t metal spur, and I'd also get the DE racing rear skid plate and front bumper.

Thanks those are good tips. I think I will run the plastic one out and have the metal for back up. I better order skid plates though forgot all about that, thanks. Really looking forward to getting out and leaping some big jumps outside.

The skid plates are nice. The rear of the chassis on these things gets smacked around a good bit on big jumps so it will only protect it that much more! Cool thing is DE gives you three of them in each package. I'm sure we will meet sometime this summer. I live in Northwest Arkansas and plan to make it up to fastlane for some outdoor racing

Has anyone heard the good word on aluminum chassis brace for the front/rear? Also, is the front upper plate compatible with the 8ight 2.0? Pretty sure it is but just want to verify. Btw... This buggy kicks phaaattt a$$$$.

Be sure to look me up. I'm easy to find there will be chicks all around me flipping my car and stuff...

Well I ordered the DE plates and front bumper and rear mud guards. Pretty much the same stuff I had on the 2.0.

Last season I was all over the chart on ESC's motors and batteries. And servos.

This season Tekin RX8 Gen2 and 1900 combo Futaba S9352HV Protec 6700 100C and I ordered some AKA hard tires to start out with for club nights. 45T steel spur aluminum TLR244021 servo saver top.


I haven't kept up with the thread. What pistons are popular? I was thinking these later on.

I would personally stay away from the aluminum chassis braces as I think it makes the buggy to stiff and yes the aluminum top top is the same.

Stay with stock plastic chassis braces. Car works great this way. Yes, top upper plate is same too.

Steel spur gear is good to have. Although, we have had same plastic gear on both of his 8E 3.0's. Servo saver top is a must too.

For pistons, we have been running the TLR 5-hole tapered in Tyler's nitro and electric cars. Run with taper up, 1.4's in front, 1.5's in back with 32.5 oil all around. Ran them inside on med bite tracks and outdoor low bite and cars work really good.

Makes sense. Thanks for the info.

Has anyone installed the avid 1/8 scale wing buttons? Is it as simple as cutting the wing mount posts flush with the wing and drilling holes in the posts for the provided screws in the avid kit?

That is quite the coincidence...we are running the exact same stuff! The only difference would be the compound and probably tread, but I'm running aka tires too .

Thanks for the points. I may end up trying those pistons first. I never had any trouble in the past with plastic spurs on my 2.0 but a fella at the track did with his 3.0. Never know could have been a simple as a rock?

I hope the 2.0 fits? That's what I ordered. It looks like they will.

No they will not, tried putting my old DE guards on from the 2.0 and wouldn't fit.
