After taking my “Roller” out of the box I have to say I was very disappointed.
The front shocks where half empty, the rear one’s had air in them, center diff was leaking and none of the tires where properly glued.
How can Losi say it is “Professionally built”?!?!?!?!?!?

you don't want to get the ones that where built right before lunch...right after lunch...and just before going home time. the rest of 'em should be good to go.

you must have gotten one of the right after lunch rollers.

Mine came built properly with locktight in all the right places. The only thing wrong was the adjustment nut on the servo saver was set too low and it rubbed on the chassis therefore binding the steering.

On my track the car is almost set up right out of the box. It lacked rear on power traction but I made the rear camber link longer, put grease in the rear diff and it improved.

On my STR I run Cody Kings setup which called for 18,000/22,000/2000 f/c/r
the truck is very dailed. I am thinking that since the str and the 8T are almost the same size and weight, those diff oils should work. What do you guys think?

Rick thanks for the link but for some reason I cant access it. If someone has it please post it on here.

No way. Those are WAY to heavy. People are saying the 5k rear is to thick, so try 2k.

Umm, sorry, but i have to use that paint scheme. I have been trying all sorts of combos trying to find something like that. Ill change it up a bit, but it will be like that if you dont mind.
