i dont see how the wheel can be rubbing the chassis on the 8ight unless you are useing the wrong size rim/tire combo.

Use stick packs with 4200 mah the high volts will help spin that box over faster and harder!Or get a lipo set-up. NO 12v. jellcell!! See if that works!

i see. for me i only tried rb c6 engine on my losi truggy. power is still good.
just that i got myself a buggy and realise buggy is more agile and i am thinking of getting my truggy a .28 engine.

i did see my friend using .28 werks engine on the losi truggy. the torque is crazy. what i seen is the .28 give a huge torque and the engine havent really go to the max the car is already reach the corner.

but to keep my truggy alive i did thought of geting a .28 engine for a try.

Can anybody that uses the ofna chrome top starter box post or pm pics of what the top plate looks like when set up for the 8ight-T. Had a miserable day today trying to get the pins right. Any pics of the chrome top would be a huge help. Thanks!

Also, has anybody used the nevermiss starter box plates on flea-bay? If so, were they any good and are they compatible with the chrome top box?

Best advice I can give is to remove the engine from the chassis. This way you can see the flywheel opening from straight above. Set the chassis on the box to see where the starter wheel lines up with the flywheel hole. Then you can see where starter box pegs need to go. Sorry I'm no more help.

I have the O.S. .28 engine and it is a monster. I love it Power band is great and with an 086 pipe the mileage is great as well.

Check the clutch shoes as well. The stock shoes did not last a gallon on either of our 8T's. My son's shoes egged out so bad they would not engage the bell last week at all after a race. Replace with the Dynamite Max life shoes and be happy
