What's wrong with the stock clutch setup?

Do you have part numbers for the Losi one?

Also does anyoe know where I could get the Losi Starter Box? It seems they are out of stock worldwide!

Thanks.

I just got to race mine sunday and i am impressed with both the truck and the Vspec i run in it. I had some trouble tuning it so a friend got it tuned for me and WOW! I got to re-learn how to drive. I am running stock losi clutch but picked up another 8T for backup and it came with a King Heads 6061 med alumnium clutch set, not sure of springs yet but was told its perfect for a Vspec ( he run it sunday and destroyed a truggy/buggy field) I also got a 2500 aa 5 cell pack that fits perfect in the battery box. Its set up like a 4 cell cage with a cell on one side, it lays down in box perfect

El Pedro - Nothing's wrong with the stock setup, but I think the four aluminum shoes last a bit longer, and the stiff springs give the truck a little bit more punch.

Hugh - How long are those shoes lasting? I've heard good things about them, glad to hear you're happy with it.

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

Thanks
I just run the Dynamite Alum servo arm for futaba servos. I'm not sure what the part number is. Losi has come out with one design of the 8 but the Futaba one has been on back order from A-main. The only one they show as in stock is the Air servo arm. The Dynamite one works better then the stock plastic but running the servo rod on the end screw hole slightly rubs against the plastic fuel spash guard but doesn't affect it any. The Dynamite arm is longer then the stock losi plastic one.

stakin - Well, it could certainly change things. Your best bet is definitely to get a new one, or at least try to bend back the one you have.

mbunker - I don't have any experience with the Dynamite servo arm, but it's important to make sure that the steering servo arm is the same distance (from pivot point to pivot point) as the top servo saver arm. Otherwise, you'll have mechanical exponential.

OK so I see that you have JR KO and Futaba but where are the Airtronics(the same as JR?) and Hi Tech arms?

stakin - I run TKO bearings in my engines, but I run Losi's stock bearings throughout the car.

losa99031 is the jr/ko
losa99032 is the futaba
losa99033 is the hitec
