ok good to hear that. the supplier which is also a friend of mine say its not a need to get the cnc aluminum stuff. 1 guy did tell me do not get the losi truggy. damn i wonder his luck isnt good enough in term of part quality or perhaps he is just anti losi.

An aluminum or carbon fiber is not necessary. Half the people will tell you to get it and the other half will say no. I'll leave that up to you. This is why setting the End Point Adjustments is important. As long as your servos are set correctly, linkages correct, clearanced off the chassis you should not have a problem.

hey guys Im having some servo problem myself, First I just got this truggy used so Im a losi and truggy newbie. I ran it for the first time yesterday and I noticed the throttle would hang open for like a 1/2 a second and return to normal, would do it almost every time I would go full throttle. The carb doesnt feel like it is sticking and the linkages and endpoints are set properly. Everything is charged and the throttle servo is a airtronics 94758. Never had this problem before in any other buggies

I remember this on my buggy. Unfortunately I don't what fixed the problem. I decided to go through everthing cause I was tired of my buggy trying to do a backflip when I was letting off of the throttle. Someone suggested the engine had an air leak or lean condition. So I tore the carb down, cleaned it up, and sealed up the engine and carb. Another person said that my linkages weren't lined up properly. This person mention having the same problem on his Mugen. So I loosened everything up, removed the servo horn, adjusted the carb angle, adjusted the linkage collars till everything looked perfectly straight and aligned, no binding or catching. I did all this at one time so I'm not sure what fixed the issue but I have not had this happen with the T yet. But I learned from the 8B so setting up the T was no problem.

Hey dol
you really should be using an air filter on the engine even when running it in inside

seems funny that the spur was bent I'm sure Brett from RCB will sort it for you though looks like who ever put it together didn't torque it up properly.

your gunna love it when it's running just make sure your end points are set right

also get rid of the greese in the diffs and replace it with oil try 7000 front 10000 centre and 3000 rear to start with

I have a Q
next year I will be at racing at a few differend tracks.
First race will be at the beach on sand sand and once more sand. Like dunes.
I need some advise on the tires. witch nones are the best on sand.
The second race is an a carpet track. Last year boas were the ticket to win.
any input please.
Also a few races wil be on dirt tracks with a lot of bumps. GRP grips where the ticket. What will it bee this year ore should I stick with the current winners.

I want to be more up front and want to invest in some tires. A few sets is what I am going to buy. I want the best fore every track and I want theme to fit my 8T. So I also need rims.

Thanks fore the input.

I have no idea what to tell you for tires. I've never drove on sand or carpet. But for tires I would think the 1/2" off-set losi wheels or the new LPR 1/2" off-set Proline wheels would work as far as that goes.

hey Dol
that sux man,if you get parts in time you could always make the trip up to Hamilton next weekend I think a few of the X-ray boys might be comin up from down your way as theres only 2 more meets at H-town before the nats in december

I'll be heading down from auckland with both the truggy and buggy for that

I've got spare alloy shock tops if needed no hinge pin braces though
