Did you have to modify the starting wheel? And what did you make the plate out of, regular plate steel? that's what i'm looking for for another month's worth of racing.

i only had to shim the wheel up a little ,about 2 washers & it was perfect....

the plate is made out of .060 aluminum & i used some non-slip tool box mat for the top ,,to tell you the truth ,i think its much more solid then the TKO plates..

The magic X5 is perfect for the 8ight in every way. I havent seen a better fitting box and its more than powerful enough for stubborn break ins. No drilling or modifying and the wheel is tiny and fits perfect! For the person who mentioned the mugen box check out rccompound.com they have a awesome deal on them right now. But look at the magic its like it was made for it

Hugh--does your modified peg go in front of the arm or behind it?

Neither. Snugs up against the chassis.

Default Rear hinge pins

keep bending the stock ones and the new improved silver ones just snap,
so I made my own. Will try out tomorrow.

McMaster Carr p/ns

3009A242 ,8813A32

will try .136 m2 first and if they bent will go with .140-9/64 m42 which are super hard.

If its's like the 8 RTR, Shock tower, hinge pin plates, chassis, clutch shoes, drive hexes and wheel nuts, shock shafts, shock springs, shock pistons, steering hinge pins, engine mounts, and "Losi" bubble nameplate. There might be more too. On my buggy this was the difference. Add it up. It's big.

Talking

These pins worked out great, 1 gallon of racing yesterday
and not even a hint of bending perfect.



3009A242 used with 1/8 alun shaft collars also from McMasters

must be cut with dremal cutoff wheel, cut alittle,cool with h2o
cut little more, same with notch on ends, try not to get pins hot.

I also made alum hub spacer .151 thick "one piece"


Good Luck. Reamers are $ , drill bits work.
