I wouldn't recommend them for extremely competitive racing but for club racing they seem to do the trick. I had them for my off-road cars and they have been good for that over the past year and half. It's time for an upgrade.
yes the hurricane 3800 35 c, and the 5000 30 c are ip packs....they are oem packs.....

the 3800 is what i have and i can defiantly feel the difference between the hurricane pack and my orion 3800 30 c.....

When running the 41T pully the bearing holder will be in the mid position. Not high or low. Mid position with bearing foward toward front of car. All my cars have them and I can get belt super loose or super toight depending on what Im looking for.(That is even on 1 year old belt)...

Even my foam car has a 41T diff pully....

Hope that helps some....

I have the IP 5000 in my Type-R.. Pack will fit right in.. Or you can sand .5MM off the humps by flat sanding pack slightly for a loose fit Or do what some do and slightly sand under bearing holders on bulkheads to fit the larger lipos..Humps are solid 70% the way thru...

I ran one all weekend at the grandslam race at 360. this pack is FOR REAL. My other pack was always fast up front then fell of at the 330 4 min mark this pack stated solid the entire run. I strongly recommend this pack....

Also it fits the car extremely well. It will go in to the lipo tray NP. all you might have to do is take alittle off the rear bulkheads....

I have been runing them for the past month also, and they seem to be holding up well, also running awesome.

I put a new thunder power 5000 40c in my car this weekend and its great. However i did have to sand some on the pulleys for it to fit without rubbing. The guy pitted next to me also run jrxs-r and he did not have to sand to get his to fit. So i think there is a little variation in the battery size.

Im looking for a sedan right now and being a Losi fan you know which one in looking at. I went to the site and did not see it. Is Team Losi really not supporting this car anymore? This is what I heard from a few people. It seems strange to me because when I first looked at the the way this car was built it made total sense to me (battery down the center, low center of gravity.) Im a off road guy going on road and I hate to jump ship. What's up with the Team? Is the 8ight the last pro car for Losi? Or are they working on a new sedan that is going to smoke everything?

Right here bro, http://www.losi.com/Products/Feature...rodId=LOSK0256

There has not been any official word on them stopping support, and I doubt they will stop making parts for it anytime soon, they don't appear to doing much in the way of refining it or updating it, they've got a lot of RTRs to focus on

I finally got my electronics ready to be installed in my car and am ready to get them mounted in my Type R. I was wondering if their was an easy way to tell what size pulley you have on your front spool? Is there a number of teeth indication?

I race on a 90 x 60 carpet track. I am gonna be running 13.5 and/or 17.5. what is the internal gear ratio of the car? Trying to get a recommended starting ratio as well. I understand how you calculate it but how does it differ when front and rear pulley sizes are different? Are people running the 41th pulley on the front and rear to fix this?

I will eventually race this car on asphalt and wanted to hear what kind of experience others were having.

Thanks!

Chi

A 42 tooth pulley has a ridge on it by where the belt goes a 40 is flat.
