here's a couple more pics since you like it... it's growing on me a little but I wasn't crazy about it at first... looked like I cut two bodies and joined them franken-style.
I wont use the buggy style, but the 8t will work great with my 8ight, 8ight T, and gt2. I already have 2 jconcepts bodies for the gt2, and 8b. Just waiting on the truggy body now.

Hey doc,

Like the bodies, especially the truggy! You paint those yourself? I picked up a 8ight-T on Friday (to go with the 8ight), so our local truggy class should be pretty full this year. I think there were 4 others sitting there held!

so what motor is everyone running in their 8ightT? a vg or a 21bf with a jp2 is pretty good on our small-ish tight track in an 8ightB. ya think they got enough rip for the T?

I ran my 8ight-T yesterday.

I bought it, took it to the track, robbed everything out of the 8ight, threw some paint on it and started it up.


I did have the brake disk catch the caliper and jam up, but a quick swap to the "green" pads had it up and running in no time.

I put about 10 tanks through it yesterday.


For the first time driving a Truggy it was Awesome. This truck turns!!

I did add the 3T/2A plate in the rear and went to the long ackerman. I really had a blast with the Truck. Everything was built well.

Not only on looks, I turned faster laptimes in Truck than the Buggy class. That was the 14tooth bell too. It still had plenty of acceleration.

thats the bad part of having the car prebuilt. they put all the stuff in at the track and go stright to running. rather than taking pics of something they just spenf hours on end building the right way.

JP B5 MOD with a JP-3.

One more interesting thing....

I only had two of the JR 9000s's left over in my box so I went ahead and installed them in both spots. I figured that it wouldn't have enough torque for the truggy but I tried it anyway. I was WAY off. that servo is perfect.....it's fast as hell and it whips those tires around with ZERO trouble.

I'm going to swap my JR 9000t I have in my 8ight out also and see how I like it.

Why do you think everyone always says you need big time torque for a buggy or truggy?

I've been into 1/8 scales for a couple years and I always thought you needed something over 200oz/in. The 9000s only has 128oz/in

will my Mugen starter box, setup to start my 8ight, also start my 8ight-T?

I don't have the box with me so i thought I'd ask you guys. Will it line up with the position of the pins set for the 8ight or will I have to re-set the pins to start the 8ight-T?

one more thing.........

any advice on a good all-around wheel/tire package? I want something different than the Losi setup but I'm not sure what to get.

part numbers would be great. I'm new to the truggy thing and I don't understand the differences in the off-sets and tire sizes. any info would be great.

I was looking at getting a set of Bowties but not sure what size or what type of wheel.

Are there any good pre-mounts?
