Is your motor and pinion gear thread locked? I stripped one out a few weeks ago because I forgot to thread lock the motor and a 12 foot high jump usually gets some good chassis slap.....lol
I always run a steel spur gear on my car. losa3552

Hopefully I can get some info here.

I have the +2MM chassis.

I thought I read somewhere to grind these pads off for more ride height?
The 8ight E 3.0 I noticed doesn't have the pads on the chassis.

Is this an up grade I can do for more ride height or are my shocks not long enough to get any more travel? Maybe have to go to the 16 MM shocks?

Thanks.
Tom
Better off getting a nice used 3.0 for 300 bucks. By the time you buy shocks an towers you have and easy 140 into it.

I read a while back on the 8ight group on facebook that you can use the 3.0 e chassis guards on the 2.0 e and run the 3.0 e bodies. Is this true? Please only answer if you have first hand experience.

Hello, hope this is in the right place as its an odd question. I have a couple of Losi 2.0 EU converted to brushless. I know that some3.0 E parts can be used on the 2.0 however I'm not sure about the drive train. Is it possible to put the entire 3.0 drive train - diffs, front and rear centre drive shafts and front and rear CV shafts and axles onto a 2.0 without changing anything else?

I recently got a 3.0 nitro car and I am gonna convert it with the Losi e-conversion kit. I put my 3.0E buggy bodies on the 3.0 buggy but the bodies are narrower. What bodies fit a converted 3.0 and mud guards?

All the 2.0 bodies will fit.

Ever since I built my 3.0, the front diff has felt like it had lighter oil in it than the rear. Maybe I didn't put enough in? Anyways...what effect will heavier oil have? I would think it would tighten up the car, which I don't really want. Also what would less droop in the front do? I think I know but figured I'd ask.
Wish A-Main would hurry up and get the lap-in-a-can back in stock.

Default Need help with suspension setup on losi 8 e 2.0

Hey guys i recently got my self a losi 8 buggy that im trying to get bash ready. I have 50wt n the rear blue kyosho springs and 45wt n the front with stock springs. To me it feels really soft for my liking. Im thinking just some new springs and ill be good but dont know how to determine the stiffness of the springs by ratio. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks

Well, usually the higher the number, the stiffer the spring. So a 8 would be stiffer than a 7 which would be stiffer than a 6 and so on.....

Best thing you could do is start fresh with new springs, pistons and oil. Go with what the book says to run. If you feel its to light, then go up in oil weight. The designers and test guys put a lot of time into the suspension to find out what works best in many situations. Let them do the hard work for you

Since you plan on bashing mostly, you might want to go one spring rate stiffer and 10 higher in oil weight, both front and rear, for those big air landings...and adjust to your liking

I am really hoping to get some help on this.

Are there any other setups from team drivers not on the TLR site? I would like to see some low traction setups.

I have one each of the SCTE 1.0 & 2.0 chassis and was hoping to convert one into an 8ight buggy. Do they use the same chassis and what other parts do they share?
Thanks in advance

Many of the screws and a few of the bearings are the same...

At least I think a few of the bearings might be them same. Then again, maybe not.
