Some fresh paint up on the sumbich....
You know the routine...Throw on the paint, then change into the wife beater and start slappin' stickers....A brother got his slap on.

I just gotta give some love to the "shark fin" .....These are some nice looking bodies (which of course is subjective).....Nice n sleek and mean looking...

If your talking about LCRC. I think most guys use the 8 hole pistons. I can't remember which springs. But I think one step softer than stock.

Yep, LCRC and Trains&Lanes are the two tracks that I'll be at the most

Sooooo, does the kit come with a Pro-Line body?

Will be doing E-buggy for the first time ever - can't wait to try it out!

I picked up the rtr (the one with the yellow body) version of the eight e 3.0 in November. I haven't been able to use it other than in my apartment. Has anybody been able to turn some laps in this car? I have been able to determine the servo sucks, but has anybody found any other weaknesses or strengths? I just wanted to get a bit of a leg up when our season opens. Any opinions or suggestions are welcome.

I am not sure about if the plastics are made the same or not. But I have heard of the spindles being a weak point. I personally have never broken one but have heard of others breaking them. If you plan on racing it's always a good idea to have extra hinge pins front and rear, shock shafts, and a front diff case as well. If you are wanting your chassis to last a good long while then I'd pick up some DE racing skid plates. Most hard core racers won't use these because they throw off your ride height readings. I'm sure I've missed something but in all honestly if you're a decent driver and don't absolutely thrash the car, it will last a good while and be a great car to drive. Definitely pick up a good servo. It makes a huge difference. I personally ran a spektrum s6090 on 7.4v all last season and it was a great servo.

5-40? Seriously Losi?

Well I am just about finished building my 3.0 E buggy, I really like how the Losi builds super fast and the manual is very nice! But this standard hardware is a joke.

With that being said, WHERE THE HELL DO I FIND 5-40 nuts in BLUE?

Help.

Thanks,

That's same hardware that's been in it since the 1.0 car. Never seen any blue 5/40 nuts but they have black ones.

Ill take standard hardware over metric ANY day, Coarser threads, More robust heads on the screws, and Overall imo Better hardware.

I used to have a Losi 2.0 nitro buggy. What's the difference between nitro vs electric and the how much better is the 3.0 compared to the 2.0?
