Like others have said I would use the 45T. Drops in with zero issues.

So does that mean that the E 3.0 has inclined spindles? If it does I dont remember them saying that???

2. Make sure you do not have too much droop. I now have 104 in front and 112 in rear.

No more issues with me.

Is this happening on a certain shock or random?
one specific shock... I wanted to see if anyone knew the size and pitch so I could clean it up with a die nut or thread file..

Last time it was asked the answer was,to much money just buy new. I don't know if that is the truth but since you have already converted it once it just might be time. I can tell you , you will love them

So I just started building my kit and not 1 bag in the kit coresponds with the book. Not to mention im already missing a screw. I sure hope this car drives better than the instructions. So much for quality control.

Questions?? Pinion Gears and Hop ups

So my 8ight E finally arrived but I didn't realize pinion gear not included. I see losi has the 14t and 15t mod 1 gears but should I be looking elsewhere? Just wondering if choice of pinion brand is important. Also any hop ups recommended out the box? I have a pair of 8ight T spindle carriers that I see some team driver run. I've change the steering top brace plate to aluminum and a aluminum servo horn. Thinking about the alum servo saver? Also wonderig if the de racing mud guards and skid plates are worth it? Team driver told me mud guards just a wind drag and the skid plates just alters ride height so I'm better off without them. Would greatly appreciate the feed back, thanks!!

Did the letters and numbers on the bags line up with the book?
