its the same old GRP Grip....i have a set of em and they are nice tires...wear is good...traction is good....i got the older Orange foam tho.....My year old losi tires are starting to get pretty thin on the sidewalls from excessive reglueing over the months....but i got 4-5 guys running the proline set-up's with no issues with the sidewalls....i bet cherokee180c that the innitial bead wasn't up to the task and that first reglueing maby some dirt and junk got in there...and now it wont hold a bead for nothing....maby.

Sorry man, I couldn't tell ya. Do you know anyone with a set of dial calipers? Or a steel rule to measure across the end of the shaft?


You trying to source a new roller bearing or something?

I actually have a revo and I just put a tiger drive on it, I was wondering cause I like the losi roto and how compact it is.

yep, stock pistons right now. Like Integra... I change oils slightly with weather. I also changed to different oils between practice races to see if the truck likes it or not.

i got a spare set of shocks to do just that with...but have yett to build em up and pick some oils to try.....my track is Sooo different every time we drive it...so its hard to keep a baseline on how the truck feels.

I know watcha mean. Our tracks are like that also. I try to setup one part of the truck different each time out but usually end up back at stock by A-main time.

I have been talking to guys who really recommend the Ofna big bores for the Losi 8T. They said it is like night and day.

which ofna bigbores ? and how is he accomodating for a shorter shaft....as i know the OFNA/Hobao shocks are significantly longer...like 10-12mm longer....and the jammin version would be the same deal....or is he just running it with 10+mm worth of extra droop ?

I am not sure as I am trying to get the details now. I know the Ofna 16mm kits come with multiple rod ends so you can use a smaller end, but not sure on the total length dimension. The guys supossedly running them are in the Georgia area, so I am trying to get details through email. 16mm would be a huge increase in oil volume though as it is a 13.8% increase in area alone without subtracting the shaft diameter, which would take up even more % of a 15mm shock. I estimate the volume increase to be over 15%. Can't you simply limit the droop with the droop screws? I would also think some fuel tubing cut to length could be used inside the shock under the piston as well to lower travel?
