Found out it was piece of lexan mount on the esc. Like the idea myself.

We tried a clutch system on our 1/8 e buggy a few years back and didnt like it. It never worked where we could be faster with it.

I installed it on mine. I haven't been able to run it that much, but like it. I started with the medium springs but am going to try one step lighter next time i get it out of the closet. Also baught one for my truggy but haven't installed it yet.

Sorry to jump in without reading the whole thread but I need to make a quick decision. I can get a nitro 8ight 3.0 at a really good price and can get the electric conversion kit. Can I ask two quick questions; does the electric conversion fit the 8ight 3.0 ok? Are there any major reason to buy the actual electric kit over the nitro kit with a conversion?

Again apologies for jumping in...

huge difference, the major difference i feel is that the centering of all the weight makes for a much more responsive car which really suits my (and many others) driving style.

If I wanted to put together the best TLR truggy, should I start with a 8IGHT-E 3.0 or should I convert a nitro truggy to electric? what's the most economical solution?

It would be too short if you used the buggy chassis... You would have to convert the T to nitro...

And there's no hope of an 8IGHT-e Truggy coming down the pipe anytime soon?

Just buy a 8T 3.0 and use the conversion kit.

Are there any ex-Mugen drivers here? I am looking to try something different and I am thinking about the Losi. I enjoy the MBX7eco but want to know what to expect from the 8 3.0e.
Thanks,
E

I have never owned a mugen but out of all the cars I do have the 8e 3.0 has to be the best, very smooth to drive handles very well its as quick as and tuff as nails, ive only broken the rear hub carriers but that was my fault parts are very easy to get as well, with all that said I love the thing great car
