Can anybody give me the width of this car across the mudguards or the width of the body? I want to put one on my SCTE/MIP Pro8 conversion and want to see how well it will fit, thanks.

DE makes guards for the SCTE that will work on that since the arms are the same.

What size pinion would you start out with a Tekin 2050 T8 on a medium outdoor track? Thanks

Nothing wrong with the 2050. When I picked mine up, I was originally going to get the 1900KV motor, but they were out of stock. I run a 13T pinion.

Sorry I am calling the side plastic guards "mud guards" I have those DE A-arm mud guards on already.

I am looking to figure out how well the stock 8-E 3.0 body will fit the MIP Pro8 conversion, so I'm looking for either the measurement of the width of the body or the width of the chassis with the plastic side guards installed.
Thanks.

It fits right on from what I have seen. Take the side nerf bars off and the body should drop on. Travis Brock has been running the 3.0 body on his MIP conversion.

Default CHARGER/POWER SUPPLY

I just finished putting together my new Losi 8e. I installed a Gen2 RX8 and T8 1900 kv motor with a PROMATCH 4S battery, and was wondering what charger and power supply someone might recommend? I am looking at a Hyperion charger but would need a 24 volt power supply. What are some opinions.

Hyperion has fallen behind the times. Their normal price is to much for what they offer. With that said, the following $99 730i Hyperion is a good deal:

I'd recommend either that Hyperion or a FMA Powerlab 6 for a single channel charger. For a dual channel charger either the FMA PL8 Duo charger or the Junsi iCharger 308Duo.

As for a power supply, just build one out of two server power supplies and wire them in series. Cost $50 or less.

If you're looking for a power supply these are all you'll ever need and priced right. They come in different colors too.
