Again one shaft or different locations.

I have seen where shock shafts don't get deep enough threads on them and will not properly bite on the ends. Really hard hits something is going to give as well. Better a shock end then a bent shock shaft or something like that.

I've decided to run 1400kv with 6s in my E, I think. But what I can't find is the specs on the battery tray. I want to know what physical size battery will fit in the car nicely. I assume most will based on the video about how versatile the battery box is.

Can anyone give me the width and length in mm of the tray?

Thanks...

Default Front End Upgrade Parts

The UPS man brought me a nice $70 box from A Main Hobbies yesterday - containing the TLR3510 Front Overdrive Gear Set and the TLR341000 Brass Weight System.

Looks like a simple enough upgrade to get some more front end grip from my Losi 8ight 3.0! Every little bit helps!

On a smooth track I ran and liked the overdrive gear on my 3.0 nitro buggy. I know many others like the overdrive gear on their 3.0E especially on tight indoor tracks.

just makes the center diff work a bit more i guess, but nothing it can't handle.

The overdrive gear ratio is 3.230, while the stock gear ration is 3.307 - a difference of only .077.

The center diff can handle all sorts of power differences from the constantly changing loads of the front and rear diffs. That's what it's supposed to do. A .077 near-constant difference shouldn't even be detectable.

Lightbulb 50 C and up

Not sure if your just a basher... but 6's are not legal for most racing. I recommend 2- Shorty packs that way one one goes bad you can just replace one LiPo rater than an expensive 4 or 6 cell

I've got nothing but luv for the EcoPower 4S at $54 a piece, plenty of punch, light, and enough juice to make 10 minutes with a 1900kv ya can't beat it.

Default 3.0 Manual

Hey Does anyone know if the 8 3.0 manual that comes with the kit has a setup guide like the old kits did? I bought a used kit and printed off the manual on the tlr site and it did not have any set up guide...

Thanks

Anyone have any pics of their car ready to run?

I was looking at my wiring last night and routing, just curious how a few of you have set yours up? Forgot to order a longer sensor wire so looks like another week before I can get out and run it. Also, where are you mounting your transponder with the radio box? Anyone running a HOTWIRE?

Other than soldering and painting the body, I'm about ready to practice and start racing again..
