It was done by eye candy r/c airbrush creations. You can find him on facebook. Trying to keep him low key as I was informed he's not accepting any work at the moment due to what he has to still finish now

Looking to get a 8ight e 3.0 for next outdoor season.
What parts should be good to have in my box?
I know i have to buy all springs and sway bars.
Anyone who have tested this against Serpent 811 BE 2.0?

sway bars come in the kit. Front Inner hinge pins and arms the hinge pin cups/blocks would be a good idea to start with.

It's not my store by any means but figured id share.
They had the Ti standoffs for $5.00, I just bought all they had for a group of 3.0 racers here in Indy. lol but don't worry they put them back up for $7 now.

How come on TLR's website I don't see any aluminum carrires, knuckles, hubs, etc for the 3.0 or the e 3.0? Or does the 2.0 alum bits fit on the new 3.0's?

Lol $7 is still fair! I stocked up for all my buggies and trucks. Also that dog bone set up was a sweet deal for $10! Got a set of those for both my buggies.

The new carriers are narrower at the mounting point as is the end of the front arm where the carrier mounts vs the 2.0 so no the 2.0 stuff won't work. I'm sure the options will come.

Just drove my buggy for the first time today. Amazing buggy. Now I just got to learn how to drive it! If anyone is debating buying it, Get It!

Unless you are in it for bling, you don't need those things. Cars are great the way they are.

Agreed. Only thing I added was a aluminum steering. Box stock is awesome. Why waste money adding to a car that doesn't need it.

The only reason they had some for the 2.0 was to offer some other caster options. These parts are not weak by any stretch of the imagination and you do not need them for strength and they add weight and are expensive. The stock 3.0 parts are just fine. As others stated it would be for a bling factor only.

Default Diff shims...

The manual doesn't mention anything about shimming the front diff but it specifies shimming the rear. Is that by design or should I look into shimming the front diff?
