Spare inner hinge pins. They will take a beating but will bend if you ring the pole hard enough.

Front and rear arms. Never broke one just common spare.

Spur gear if you are gonna stick with the plastic one. Yet to tear one up, just nice to have a spare.

Hello Gents,


im wondering if or when there will be some additional bodies available. Please don`t think that i don`t like the stock one, its a real beauty.


I hope that there will be any TLR officials which can answer my question.

Regards

I am not sure there are any plans at the moment for other 8ight-E bodies but I would have to assume companies like JC and Pro-Line may release new bodies for this car to give you some choices. If you liked it better the 2.0 body does fit on the car, it just does not hug the chassis like the 3.0 body. The 3.0 body has a lot of functionality to it which drove the design. Don't overlook the performance of a body.

Is there anyway to run 2 full size 2s bullet connector packs in this car, I am currently running 2 shortys but would like longer run times.

Yeah, you would run them the same way as the long packs, just without the holder thing on the top.

The bullet connecters collide with themselves though? Or contact the other battery for lack of better words. The top devider for the shifty packs keep them seperate. With long packs there is no way that I have found to do this, unless I am just being stupid

the connectors become stops to keep the batteries apart. This as been done for years with deul stick packs in 8th scale. Not super ideal but it is what it is. Keep the batteries held down nice and tight with the velcro and go have some fun.

Yeah, somewhat new to running 2 2s batteries in 8 scale, that isn't very ideal, I can see myself blowing the connectors right off the battery on a hard crash..

With the battery pads supporting the ends the batteries should not move very much. If they are kept tight to each other the connectors should not take a lot of load. You can go the shorty route or invest in a 4S brick are kind of your options.
