There's no electric onroad racing here in the Omaha area during the summer so I have to hang out in the offroad threads, I just stop by every now and then to see what's up and harass a few people. BTW the Losi 8ight rocks

Finished the build last night. Every thing looks nice! I did have one problem thought, I could not get the diffs to tighten up. Any one else have this problem?

When you say tighten up! do you mean so that they don't slip? Personally I build my diff then put it in the car, this is when I tweak the diff. While holding the and a wheel, try to turn the opposite side of the same diff, if the wheel turns then the diff is slipping, keep turning the diff screw in increments until the wheel dont want to crank over. Hope this helps

that is intended, there should be a slight slip - when you run on the track the diff will perform well and last a long time too

Hi Fred,

When you have the front of the car facing away from you, you should be able to hold the left rear tire and spur gear at the same time, then try and rotate the right rear tire. This should barely slip. If you do the opposite, the left tire should slip more so than the right side. On the diff hub the diff ring is keyed by the D-ring. On the diff tube side the diff ring is intended to slip on the brass washer to act as a slipper for you diff. This increases diff life immensely. We have run this setup in mod a lot and it has worked great giving greater diff life to our cars.

TECH TIP BY TODGE:
Apply some of the Team Losi thrust bearing grease on each drive pin that locates into your outdrives of your LCD and RCD. By adding grease to this area it will help free up the car. The nice thing about this is our diff design, all the grease stays contained in in the diff outdrives since everything is enclosed.

Thanks Todd! I have the front diff not slipping and the rear diff slipping slightly. I think I might have over tightned the screw and stripped the plastic. I ordered some extra outdrives so I'll switch it out when they get here. For now I was gonna CA the screw threads in the outdrive....sound ok? By the way excllent work! I love the metric wheel nuts. Everything lined up first try. What a joy to build. Thanks LOSI!

Well guys had a good outing today with the car. I put on the P-Dub and BRP lower bumper brace on there and held the car together really well. I did break one front arm due to smacking a corner in a sweeper that was sticking out. Broke out of my slump and turned the fastest lap of the day and maybe track. Car was reeally consistent. Thanks to JLand for working with me on some issues.

I was intending to race mine today and was running it in practice, but it did not feel right. Rear was rather loose but thought it was my lack of new tires and a dusty track. I came home and look on here to see the info on how to do the diff and I believe that was my whole problem. I ended up just running my old car in stock.

Is anyone that is running rubber like the kit setup and if not what are you changing on it? I can't make a comment on that setup since I had other issues and really could not get a good feel for it. I do have to say this thing deffinitely has way more steering and corner speed then the last car. I believe once I get it dialed in it will be great. I really want to try it on carpet though, but have to wait for our track to reopen.
