I believe there is no turnbuckle binding issues on thr 4.0. Does anyone know what has changed, I havent checked out the part numbers to see if they are the same as the 3.0. Maybe one way to solve this issue on the 3.0?

Just finished assembling the rear clip, when I shimmed the diff and screwed the case together it felt great, after I got the clip installed it got really tight and even to where I couldn't rotate the outdrive by hand in one spot, loosened up some of the case screws and it got better, question is- is this normal or do I need to open it up and re-shim it? I shimmed per manual instructions

There is sometimes a high spot in the ring gear and it will even out when u run it- in your case if u can't even turn the outdrive in one spot I would personally re-shim it- it should be just a hair notchy when shimmed right but still smooth and you'll be able to rotate the outdrive by hand- bottom line- every gear and gearbox always don't have the exact same tolerances in my experience, so manuals aren't always "spot on" but close- make sure u lube the ring gear also - I personally use eureka gear grease, kyosho ring gear grease and Casper extreme grease- hope this helps

yeah its out, had a look at and will admit I'm not jumping out of my seat. Will convert my current 3.0 on the various revised parts for durability. Wont worry with the chassis and drivetrain from the 4.0

I feel the same way right now....maybe it'll change after driving one, but from here, it doesn't look like $600 worth of improvements to me. I think I'll just update parts on 3.0 as well.

I'm interested in the Losi 8ight-E RTR buggy. Would that be considered the 3.0 ? Although I'm hoping they make the 8ight-T truggy in RTR form.

Far as I know it is the 3.0 version just some parts are on the cheaper side. And there is no rtr electric truggy version. The truggy only comes in a gas version rtr.

This is very interesting but if they were going to offer the option of reduced angle on the front driveshaft it makes no sense that that they didn't move the diff closer to the battery to get some of that angle reduction instead of moving the rear part of the center diff away from the battery.
