How is the JP-4 Pipe working out. Is there such thing as a all in one pipe? I have the 086 Dynamite Platimum pipe. It seems pretty good. I am wondering how they compare.

I am running the O.S. .28xz. Love the motor and pipe combination. I also run the 8ight B. Wondering if the pipes are similar or if I need to get another pipe over the 086.

Default losi 8T

well i have returned to the losi brand and I must say that so far so good Im really enjoying the truggy, even though my buggy gave me hell I had so many problems with the buggy that i had vowed to never get another losi vehicle, buy yet here I am with the truggy. But this time it seems different. Handles a little different and hasnt broken to many parts yet. My buggy never made a Main race just qualifiers everywhere i went if it wasnt one thing it was another and being that i had been to many brands of buggy I just couldnt get it to set up correctly for my driving style and then once i did i kept having problems with the ring and pinion in the rear i changed every part back there bearings plastic dif dif casing all of it and i could not make it thru a day with it.
But so far the truggy doesnt seem to have that problem. Not to mention the buggy i had was one of the first ones released so maybe that issue has been taken care of Im not sure if anyone else knows i would love to know I might just pick me up a new losi 8b and see what happens from there. Because Im loving the 8T so much.
sorry its so long and confusing but i just had to get it off my chest and see what others have had problems with.

Welcome back...

I understand what you mean as I really liked my 8ight B, but I absolutely love everything about the 8ight T much better. Not sure what it is, but it seems to drive better. Maybe it's the added weight or my lack of skills, but it seems to be a different animal to me.

I kept most of my upgrades and transplanted them into the truggy and so far I'm extremely happy.

Here are some pictures when I first put it together. Only difference now is that it's a little dirtier... LOL...

Id go with a JPX version of the P7r modded by Ab or Clockwork...the Jammin version for the fact that Picco heads fall apart on occasion.

Welcome back. LOL. That's too bad you had so many probs with your buggy. Mine has just crept over the 14 gallon mark and all three diffs have been refreshed with fluid; THAT'S IT. Not even one gasket replacement.

I hope you enjoy the truck. There are few things you can do to bullet proof the truck. I don't know how much of the thread you've read, but we've tried to keep the list within a few pages.

Wink What a bummer......

I had the ring and pinion gear deal in the rear of my buggy. It was due to the whole diff assy being able to move away from the input gear. I solved it by taking all of the slop up and limiting the potential movement with shims between the diff case and the bearing on the left side. This forces the diff case and ring gear to stay towrds the input gear. Now it is smooth and consistant and can't back away. I have seen this a couple of times on other people's cars but have never had it happen to me.
Fixed now!
Hope this helps someone,
TEX

the Jammin JPX can be had at any LHS or online....its made by Jammin...but its the exact same thing as the Picco version....and the Losi box is the BOMB....i would reccomend it Highly...there were issues in the beginning with faulty motor's which was quckly resolved....i also Highly reccomend rewiring and breakin in the motor's also.

The Losi box is worth every cent. I bought me a Losi box and ran in the motors kept my Ofna Chrometop as a back up. I sold the Ofna box after 2 weeks the losi box is as strong (use a gell cell its A+).

Asked a Q a few days ago and didnt get a straight answer. I figured it out myself. The rear hinge pins were bent very bad. This is wy she was very nervus in the rear.
Just fore info

I still have the first run of the Losi boxes. I guess I was lucky cause I'm breaking in a third engine on it. No problems yet.

Hellsavage---I think my buddy indaway was replying to you. His post is on the bottom of page 39. Very last post on the page. I didn't reply cause he did. Sorry bud. I check for bent hinge pins often. I remove the wheels and use a hex driver to spin the hinge pin while it's in place. That way I can see if the hub is moving around. Umm...somewhere in this thread a few people used hardened steel blanks cut down to size and threaded on the ends to use nylock nuts.
