Excellent choice on race machine!!
The front inner hinge pin cover (plastic piece) sometimes breaks, mainly after a massive jump gone wrong or a collision or both....this results in the hinge pin sliding out, but only if the plactic cover breaks away.
The wing mount will get a bit bent if you are prone to crashing.
The rear outer hinge pin will bend if it takes a bit hits on the rear wheels.
And the steering arm will pop off the ball if you haven't already captured them......apart from those minor things there isn't really much to worry about.
Some guys have problems stripping diff cases, but I haven't had that happen.
Have fun man they are a great truck!!

its way to hard getting the counter sunk screw out

Anyone think we will have to solder the stone fuel filter together on the 8ight-T 2.0 like some of us had to do on the 8ight/8ight-T?

Question for everyone using lipo receiver packs. Who's regulator are you using? I tried a Castle Link, but when I use the throttle and steering at the same time, one will die (I'm guessing because of lack of current). I tried moving the output voltage higher, but no help. I'm thinking of getting a losi one, but since the Castle Link is rated at 10A and the Losi is 5A, I'm not sure. So I was wondering if I'll have the same problem with the Losi regulator. I thought for a sec or two I'd run without one, but the servos were WAY too fast.........
