How can I post a picture on here of my crazy new body of the Tasmanian devil cartoon for my 3.0e without having to create a whole photobucket.

I use my iPhone when using the forum and that's where the pictures r on if anyone can help me out

Upload it to facebook and right click and choose copy image address. Hit the icon above with the mountain and sun (yellow one) and done.

Hi all. Haven't had many runs with this thing. Brought it to the field yesterday. I have the suspension a bit high and the thing did some pretty harsh flips in the air, cartwheels and took a good solid beating. I'm surprised nothing broke.

I guess this thing is pretty tough.

Finally managed to get a chance to run my 8ight-E 3.0, It handles very nice however...

When I finished building the car the first time, All three differentials were leaking. The car had less than 5 mins of run time. Decided to just get new seals and gaskets, rebuild all three. I ran the car again today, and AGAIN, With less than 5 mins in, all three diffs are still leaking. Did anyone else have this problem? Or am I just that unlucky? Starting to get very frustrated with how little I've gotten out of this car before something goes wrong.

when building the diff coat the gasket and oring with oil before putting it together. also put grease around the out drive in the groove.

Default Changing diff fluid

Hey I am about to change my diff fluid on my own for the very first time in an 1/8th scale and i wondering how long do you think it would take a diff fluid rookie like me to change all the fluid in My 3.0..

Also any tips you can give me or a link to a good in depth YT video would be helpful as well!

Thanks guys

i just finished building my second 3.0e.......

What a huge difference in suspension. The first one would constantly bind.I made sure everything was free, squeezed ball cups etc.....After a ton of riding its now pretty decent, but has never been "right". I love the car, but that has always been an issue.

Somewhere along the production run they mustve adressed the issues cause the suspension on this new build is perfectly smooth.

Finally got mine finished.

Took her for the maiden voyage yesterday on the front street. About 5 minutes in, she stopped going. Pinon gear came loose and fell off. doh. Some blue loctite and 20 hours later, took it out a field this morning and it ran great. Between yesterday and today saw about 30 minutes of run time on a single 5000mah pack - with multiple full throttle runs in grass. And up and down a big hill.

Not too shabby.

Default Tlr 3.0 turnbuckle rod ends TIGHT

Does anybody make a better turnbuckle rod end that moves freely. These things are too tight does not let the car settle out to correct ride hight.I already took them off the squeezed the rod end and reinstalled the ball end.ready to take them off and Pop out the ball and put some Emery on them

TLR makes a good set that comes with the 8ight 4.0/8ight-e 4.0. I know some people who ran the 8ight 2.0 camberlinks as well.

You squeeze them with the ball installed. Really squeeze them hard.
