If you are running outdoor, you want to go down 5-7.5 wt front and rear with the car. You will also want to play with droop some and of course camber.

I run on larger outdoor tracks that tend to get blown out and are a little loose so any and all setup suggestions are welcome.

You will likely want to go more towards the adam drake nitro setup or use dakotah's setup from nats then for a track of that nature.

Smc lipos if they had the 4s in stock. They don't. I use the trinity titanium 4s gray packs. They are $99 on stormerhobbies I believe

I run SMC 2s packs currently. Looking at their 4s packs however, I don't need the big 6500, the 5100 is only 40c (looking for a little more c rating), and the new shorty pack coming out would be perfect if not $90. I'm looking for 4000 to 5000mah tops

The dimensions are completely different. Its much narrower and a bit taller to allow more clearance for the battery.

Also, if you like your nitro 3.0, you should consider trying that setup adjusted for the weight difference on your E 3.0 on your particular track.

Hey Guys,

Also a new owner of a shiny new TLR 8IGHT-E 3.0 this past weekend, unfortunately I was shorted an outdrive in the kit (but an extra outdrive with the set screw) so hopefully can finish the build this weekend. Definitely a sweet bit of kit!

Regards,
Mike

When you say adjust for weight difference I assume you are talking about shock setup?

Yes...and I don't mention anything specific as some run the lighter electronics setup like Casper and myself with the T8i and 2 shorty packs and some run a heavier setup with the T8 gen2 and a full sized pack.

I have a rx8 gen2 and the 1900 T8i coming and am not set on having to run a brick pack so I am open to running shorties. What do you see different in the handling characteristics running the shorty packs compared to the 4s brick pack and also is there a ideal place to place them in the tray. I will be running on high bite indoor clay here in the next month and a half so your setups should be close. Thanks again for the info.
