The kit doesn't come with pinions. Tyler's didn't at least.

The kit didn't. When I converted the nitro 3.0 the conversion kit had pinions. Sorry for the confusion

What is the part number for the pistons that Dakota used for his E-Buggy setup posted on TLRacing.com?

I don't think that they are available for sale yet. Other then being on his setup sheet I have not heard a word about them.

Guys,

If your front end is binding check your ball stud linkage that bolts to the front shock tower. It"s close enough to the front gear case that it"s rubbing. I took a dremel to the plastic linkage on both sides and now the front suspension drops with no resistance.

Hay guys I posted this in the RX8 gen 2 thread. How are you guys mounting your ESC to the chassis. I've used double sided tape and it seams to always come off eventually. I have gone to double sided tape and shoe goo. I have Sean people use hard plastic heavy duty Velcro but I'm not sure about it.
Are there any other ways that are better?

What do you guys think?

I used good quality velcro to mount an rx8 in my scte 2.0 and had some pretty nasty crashes. The esc has never come loose. I just mounted an rx8 gen 2 in my 8ihgt e 3.0 with velcro.

You really need to use some good quality double sided tape such as the grey 3M stuff that is rated for 20 pounds from Home depot or the MIP MXT1 tape.

Kyosho makes sticky gel pads. Its green. Comes in a block. If it becomes unstuck. Wipe it with simple green and it will stick again. Yep its reusable. Try it. Its amazing

I use 3m double sided tape and use shoe goo around the edges. Never had it come off!

I have used the Kyosho Zeal tape in the past and it works great. Only problem is, I don't think you can use the zeal tape with an RX8 and still fit under the body.

What motor you running and what kind of track you running on?

With the 3.0-E some of us are running light motor and battery setups for indoor running. Works great for a more nimble car. If you run at a large outdoor track you might want a heavier setup.
