Different setup for the boxes.
Yeah. Now I get to carry 3. Part of it.

As far as tire/wheels, the MTR from proline are great.

Not the 40 series ones.

Proline will be coming out with the Maxx size 1/2 offset wheels soon.

For now the Jammin wheels with 28mm offset are the wheels for you.
You can also use the Thunder Tiger ones or HPI.

If you are that great, just think of what you COULD have done with the 8ight-T!

The Losi tires and wheels actually work great, I hope that they step up and make a few more tread patterns to fit this wheel. I think the small side wall doesnt allow nearly as much flex and helps the handling greatly.I was running a CRT before the 8T so I had a bunch of tires and wheels to try out. When I put on the Crime Fighter MT's I picked up a huge push in the corners frm the tires rolling over, it was a night and day diffrence for sure.

There were never servo issues with the cars. Just user Error. But in case you are concerned, there is now an included manual with the truck to set up the brakes/servos properly.


They gave the racers too much credit in being able to set up the servos on our own. lol.


I have had about 20 tanks and one race on the truck. I was not a "Truggy" driver, but I really like it.

I think the stock setup is really good, but I had to try and throw my buggy setup on it. WEll not MY setup, more like drake's buggy setup.

and although I lost a little of acceleration, the truck turns soooooo well.

Oh +1 on the tires. I have not even glued the new tires yet to try.
