Good luck, the best thing to do is to pick and choose different things to try from different setup sheets to personalize it to what you need.

Looking for some help on the rebound in the rear, what shocks are y'all running for outdoor loamy tracks. All I have is the standard black ones that came with it. Can anyone push me in the proper direction appreciate it!

Can't say the track I run on is really loamy, but is big outdoor with changing conditions. I run CSI blues with 30f/27.5r and my buggy rocks. Took fourth place in expert this weekend and that is the best I have done and is my second race with this buggy. I will note to watch your center diff, I (yes, my fault) didn't tighten the screws so as to not overdo it and it leaked on me. Refilled, retightened and no problems. Btw, I'm running kit diff setup still.

Finally got a JConcepts Silencer painted up for the 8ight 3.0. We tried something on the windows, and that turned out pretty bad. I can't say that I was a fan of the stock body, but I sure did miss it being precut and ready to go.

I'm liking the car so far. I'm basically on the stock setup with 5/5/5 and the thinnest front sway bar.

I'm not too sure on what to do regarding shock oil. I've got the stock springs and stock pistons. I run on a smaller indoor track with smaller. 50* or so temperature wise.

Being an old Associated owner, I really like a good amount of droop with a really good amount of dampening in the shocks. Could someone suggest a droop/shock oil setup that works with the kit springs and pistons?

It will be much appreciated.

I just had my 3.0 out for the 2nd time this weekend, unfortunately it was a race day and not practice. I need to tune this buggy for our track, we dont have a practice day I can attend for weeks. Anyway, our track is medium high bite clay and not the smoothest. Im at 3400g and 50/50 balanced L to R and F to B, slightly off center towards the rear. 1st time out using box setup, pushed a lot into corners. Jason R/C suggested some changes he liked, and I tried. Lowered links f&r 5,7,3k in diffs and lightest sway bars. Steering of coarse improved, lightened rear and swung around easily. Jason had liked that but I like the rear more planted and predictable. I did also notice with our tracks chopped up areas the tires were bouncing off the track and naturally losing traction. That was it for the first time out. I only get out to the track about once every 6-7 weeks, so I have a lot of time to think about setup. If you look at Casper and Drakes setup, watch the videos where they run. Super smooth tracks! Since my buggy is balanced, I switched rear springs to green to match the front and dropped oil wt to 35f 32.5r. Put rear link at B on hub so its length is close to front link, both still is in lower hole. This weekend, 2nd time out. I noticed wheels bouncing off track isn't as bad, but landing off jumps rebound is strong and wanting to wheelie. Also a double that in the middle of a right hand 180 deg, if I dont hit that jump straight and land squarely it easy rolls over. So, since my buggy is on the light side I switched to silver springs all around and kept same oil. Now tires follow the bumps very well, no more wheelies and seems to be more forgiving landing that double. The double could be driving skill, I just need more practice! Also with lighter springs you definitely need to not over shoot the jumps, which should be done anyway. I then changed rear diff back to 5k, wanting a more controlled rear. It definitely helped, entering tighter turns I just tappped the brakes and had more than enough steering throughout the turn. Thats were I left off, might try going back to 5k in the center but I might have trouble clearing a triple thats just after a right hander. I hope this helps anyone wondering about shock setup. I could use advice on why this buggy is rolling over on that double landing actually and jump not landing straight it want to roll. I did switch ride height to 28mm and droop 103.5f and 113.5r.

What kind of track do you run on? Im using indoor med size, Tekin t8i 1950 with 15/45. Plenty of power, super smooth and quiet. After 10 min main temps were at 165f. Couldnt be happier with this Tekin setup.

Questions??

Anyone know if the steering rack set (TLR244005) for the 8IGHT 3.0 will fit in my 8IGHT-E 2.0 buggy ?

Some people call it an "ackerman" or "linkage".

I like how this particular part for the 3.0 pivots on bearings, and would love to use it as an upgrade for my 2.0 .

Thanks for any info.
