@Capelracer: I'm wondering the same. Would love to buy some tuning for it, but I can't even find any part numbers.

Another thing: are you guys running a fan motor? Most people at my local track do it with their Agamas and JQs, and I actually have one from the old 8ight 3.0 (electric conversion) which I drove with an Agama A215E body but I just can't mount it on my motor without the body interfering with it. Is there a fan/mount that is thin enough to make it fit?
Would love to use my old one, since it was clearly too expensive for laying around.
Maybe you have some tips for me

The parts list and part numbers for the kit are on the TLR website: Team Losi Racing

The new body, chassis, clutch and rear pivot brace are for the nitro version, however the rest of the tuning parts you can use on the e-buggy.

Have not hear plans on whether they are going to release a 4.0 ebuggy chassis... figured it would be out by now.

I noticed the springs in kit have colored dots on them. Green on the fronts & silver on the rears. What does that represent in ratings?

Can't wait to try my new 3mm M2C chassis! If it's anything like the nitro chassis, it's gonna be awesome!

What benefits do you think you will see with that chassis? Just curious if it's worth getting once my current chassis is toast.

Ok thanks. That's what I ended up doing and will see how that works.

From what I read it's supposed to allow more flex.

It is 1mm thinner to create more chassis flex. On the nitro car, this created more grip and more corner speed while making it much easier to drive.

Anyone have any 2.0mm front and rear sway bars they would like to get rid of? I don't want to buy two separate sway bar kits for just these two. PM me if so. Thanks.

So back to the issue. First off you will want to use a silver sharpie and trace where the caster block is touching the arm. Next take the spindle and carrier off of the arm. You will take a drum style dremel and dremel out the area at a 45 degree angle to the arm. Test fit, if the carrier is still touching take a little more material off. Put the carrier back on the arm and you should see space between the carrier and arm as pictured.

Hope this helps! I will be headed down to PNB this weekend, see you guys there!
When you run full droop you remove the droop screws front and back?

yup take the droop screws out for full droop, the only downside is the shock bottoms seem to pull off the shafts very easy.

Default Wing Mount

Hey Frank,
I ordered the 8IGHT 4.0 Gen II Wing Mount kit at the beginning of July. It was on backorder until end of July. No biggie. Still haven't received it tho. I checked & now it says late August. Whats up with the push back? Do you think it'll get pushed back again?
