Nice looking track, what motor do you have in the truggy?

Got a quick question. I put in the aluminum rear diff bearing adaptors and now it feels really "notchy" tore it apart and lubed it all up and its smoothe.. Put it back together and its notchy. Only when its all together.. Any ideas? Or is this normal?

Don't worry bud. It's normal. This is a recurring concern for many new drivers of the T. After about 10 tanks you won't feel it anymore. Did you get the aluminum servo saver top piece too?

Yeah, did all the usual upgrades. Al front top plate, servo saver arm, radio tray stiffener, center diff bearing insert, rear diff bearing inserts, and engine mount... Are the chassis braces worth upgrading? Still have the plastic ones...

When I was assembling my 8ight Pro competition kit I noticed my rear diff was way too tight (mesh) when I used the aluminum diff inserts. Once I put the plastic ones back in it was fine. I have since ran the buggy 3 race weekends and I may try the rear aluminum inserts again. I hoping the diff has seated and will now accept the aluminum diff inserts without being notchy or too tight of a mesh!

The chassis braces aren't needed unless you'd like to tune the way the truck feels for you. I've never used the aluminum top plate or radio tray before so I can't comment there. It will look good though.

Way2fast--your diff should work just fine now with the aluminum inserts. The plastic inserts will wear over time and might cause some misalignment problems with the ring and pinion gears.

Yeah he is right! I smoked a rear pinion when the inserts wore out and lef the diff walk around... Front wheel drive really blows especially in the main! Pretty cheap insurance in my mind!
Now I did notice Frank doesn't run a rear sway bar so I pulled mine off.

I think it mostly depends on the track. Frank likes to try different settings all the time. I'm not good enough to drive well if I had a bad setup. No matter what he has, he is fast.

I am invited to test the Fioroni shoes for the Losi chlutch.
Is there someone hwo has any experiance with theme.
I like to know your experiance. Good or bad.

Any one have some basic spring setting to start with.

I will be testing them with a .28 GRP but also with the .21 GRP.


Thanks Hellsavage

Yeah I know, I couldnt tell a bad set-up from a good setup.
It must work better cause cool took his off too...
So I will try it as it sits, sometime this week?
Who knows I might just become a truggy guy since my luck as of late has sucked with the buggy! Every time I run it something breaks!

I have tried both the Losi clutch and the Fioroni on my 8ight T. I like the fioroni because it's easy to maintain and lasts alot longer than the stock 8T clutch setup. I get just about as much snap with the Fioroni as I do with the stock clutch. Since I had a few fioroni clutches from my old TTR ST-1 pro and my FT RC8 I decided to try them on my new Losi's and they work excellent. They are definitely worth the try if anyone is thinking about a new clutch for their 8ight or 8ight T. Just my 2 cents!
