Had the same thing happen with servo saver nut backing off, I cleaned the treads and applied blue lock tight, but I think I want to find a flanged bearing
for the bottom post.

Run the servo saver flush from the bottom of the threads on the buggy and 2-3 threads tighter on the truggy.<---straight from Adam Drakes mouth.

It is important to keep an eye on the servo saver, especially to keep it clean. Blue loctite is a great idea to keep the adjustment consistent.

Also, take your servo saver apart and use a file to round the pointed edge of the two servo saver halves. This will help the servo saver break free more easily and work better.

Default slop from worn servo saver arm

I was having an issue with not getting the front wheels to center correctly. After tearing down the steering servo saver assembly, I noticed that the plastic where the servo saver arm top section meets the bottom half with the servo saver spring was worn and had a ton of slop/play. Now I know why Losi came out with the aluminum servo saver arm upgrade and I have one ordered. My 8B hasn't developed this problem which is probably due to the lighter front tires or maybe running the buggys servo saver tighter.

(Kind of makes me wonder if they released this alum arm hopup because they had the foresight on the wear with the plastic arm, then what's the reason behind the center diff front bearing alum. spacer insert.)

a quick question to you all. my 8ight B's chassis is quite stiff, but my 8ight t is noticably very flexible. are you guys running the aluminum braces front and rear or just in the rear?

The extra leverage really makes a difference!

I don't think the flex is a bad thing at all. Heck, that's why the buggy is that way also. I've heard of some people running one or the other but I know my truck, and at least Truhe's, have the stock braces.

Default clutch

who is running the kings head clutch shoes? do you like silver and gold springs like the buggy or would it be good to try all silver?

Hey,

Just ordered a new Eight T. Am planning on putting OS V Spec with OS 3 chamber pipe in. Futaba S9351 and S9451 Servos with my Spektrum HRS gear in.

Are there any mods that need doing right out of the box?

Am hoping to be running this weekend.

This is the exact same setup I run in my 8t except for I run a jp-2 pipe and header. I would suggest getting a 1400 lipo receiver pack and running the 6v regulator since you will be running two digital servos. Also get an aluminum steering servo horn since the plastic losi one will last about 5 minutes with the Futaba servo. And maybe get the Kinghead Aluminum clutch shoes and run all four aluminum it the truggy. There is plenty of info on the losi clutch already here on this forum so I'm not going to go into detail of it here.

Thanks Michael,

I already use Lipo in all my trucks and will continue to do so with the Losi.

Do you have part numbers or links for the appropriate servo horn and clutch setup?

Thanks

If you intend on running Losi clutch parts, try four of the blue aluminum shoes with four silver springs. Works awesome!
