+1. They are much better. They are similar to the truggy boots which I was using until they released these.

I've set my 8ight-e 3.0 up as per manual
I've got 5000wt oil in the Front/Centre/Rear diffs but when i'm flat out my front wheels start to balloon, seems like my front wheels are spinning a lot more then the rear.
Feels like 65%front and 35%rear at the moment

If I was to put 7000wt oil in the front diff will this lessen the drive to the front wheels so I can have even drive front and rear???

Increasing the thickness of the centre diff will help even out the power that is going to the front/rear. Your current setup with 5000 in the centre is allowing too much power to go to the front when the weight shifts back under acceleration and the front tires lose grip.

Default Weight Balance Question

Hi - I've finished my build of the 8ight e 3.0, but wanted to check the weight balance before taking my first run. With a 4S pack on the left side, I expected it to be heavier on that side and require a little bit of weight on the right side to compensate.

I was quite surprised to find that not only is the right side heavier - it's heavier by a fair margin (particularly in the front). You can see in the attached image the weights are:

FR - 839g
FL - 465g
RR - 893g
RL - 1009g

So the car is about 60/40 rear/front weight ratio, but about 65/35 R/L at the front. This seems really out to me and I'm concerned on the first jump the buggy will tilt to the right pretty hard.

Just wondering if others have seen this (I can't image my setup looks much different or that my motor is 2x the weight of anyone else).

I don't even own enough weight to make up that much imbalance.

Any thoughts / insight would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Ron

Lightbulb Sway Bar disconect

Please make sure you disconnect the sway bar . Simply pop them off the ball. Then re measure the car .. The sway bars will give you false readings. When you re install the sway bars make sure they float side to side and do not bind!

Sorry I should have mentioned in the post that I did disconnect the sway bars to remove that issue. The weight imbalance is with no sway bars installed.

Thanks for the info. By those numbers it would make sense if they would produce a battery tray that would move the battery forward.

Something is definitely not right..... I balanced my cars on the same scales and got very different results.. There must be binding somewhere in the front end or something wrong with the scale....

I'll try to take the time to scale mine tonight. I'll do mine without springs and see what it is.

FYI I am running the 40g ballast up front and the battery forward. The kit has really been zooming for me with the silver springs.

Mine is bone stock (just built it), so no ballast anywhere. I put my B4.2 on the scale to make sure the scale seemed right and it balanced almost exactly L/R (the battery and motor are on the center line in that buggy so not surprising). I moved the battery as far forward as it would go (in the 8ight) in the holder but it didn't make much difference (I only have about 1/2" of play, so not much adjustment available there).

I did not remove the shock springs when measuring, only the sway bars. Should I? I could see the springs shifting Front/Rear balance, but wouldn't think they'd skew things Left/Right?
